Forum Post: A Model for Organization from which #OWS could learn much

As suggested in Forbes today, Alcoholics Anonymous may be the very best model on which #OWS should aim to design itself. The greatest test would be that of the ego for #OWS, as to remain leaderless demands as much from within the group as from the individual. I am uncertain the occupiers are desperate enough for such single minded purpose. http://littlebiggy.org/4660547

hahaha very good biggygirl....singleness of purpose of A.A. is to help other alcoholics to achive sobrierty....singleness of purpose of OWS...who the heck knows anymore,there was a purpose though at one point.

I have had the same thought. It is a great organization. The purpose would be to repair our failed financial system. Wall Street is such an obvious target because they have callously bankrupted the system and this should never happen again... very analogous to maintaining sobriety!

singleness of purpose of OWS, could be a new currency printed by OUR government rather than a foreign bank.
