As many others here are, I am also concerned about the internal sabotage. It seems a few can run things but then create a hierarchy and club anyway. 3 people in the last week and a half who claim to be ardent Occupiers and activists also claim sponsorship by politicos, bragging to me of monies and support from Washington, senators etc. They seem to have joined to boss others and get the glory, while downplaying others' importance and contributions. And to gain POWER. Very self serving. I can't even be heard above the din of their egos bloating. Others confuse personal relations with social duties they themselves volunteer for. For instance today I am po'd because I had info in a legal matter NO ONE wants to hear, especially the involved person's significant other, since she wants to dominate all efforts and essentially keep all the glory, and the person's dependence. There are too many like that. I like credit for what I do, and not others' efforts, that is their contribution and I have mine. There needs to be cohesion, the actual sharing of the directorate, less monopolizing of control and frankly the funds and resources, as some have profited while others beg. I am heartily tired of the guys who pretend to be broke and throw on the same old smelly clothes to look poor, as if that's all they have. BS. I wonder if they think they are better? The gladhanding and simpering attempts at mirroring don't annoy everyone and tip others off after a while. What happened to the farms, no one I knew ever was 'allowed' to go! It seems the money was siphoned off and integrity sold within as without Occupy. Bypassing egos and faults, we can work together and create a physical reality of the visions, merging the planes and making our Utopia. It is further away and questionable, as too many of us are excised and personal wants and prejudices rule the day.
