Power: " ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something." I'm a simple man, therefore the way I look at things is simple, I see a lot of potential in the occupy movement, I also see the need to introduce the two most powerful words in the real revolutionary of today's world, by using the definition above, we can see that by discerning the true power of these words, we can completely take charge of our future and how far we really want to go with this. Without delay here are the two words: One is: YES and the other is: NO These words can be used to build or to destroy. Yes represents your approval or agreement, while No represents your disapproval or disagreement of something. One is positive the other is negative. Let us see some examples, first of NO A corporation uses unlawful or unethical practices, the movement (meaning OWS) gets involved and declares war on such corporation, the members in turn agree with OWS and say NO to such corporation, here are the ways one declares no: 1) Boycott: We physically or expressively communicate our intentions 2) Economic withdrawal: We do not buy any of their products This when done correctly, meaning with real unity, all of us together, can cause severe hurt to any corporation and bring them to a down to earth level, where they will quickly react and work to resolve the issues at hand.
Here is an example of YES.
The above corporation has a change of heart after being helped by OWS to see the light, then OWS declares the boycott to be over, once that happens we can all resume our interactions with them as before.
This might be too simple, but it makes sense, since corporation understand only when they are hit in their pockets, that is the only language they understand, therefore we must learn how to speak their language. By keeping it simple, we can all work together using minimal resources with greater effectiveness. This method can be applied not just to corporations but also to politicians and any money driven entity. Let us meditate on this, and find then it is up to the management of OWS to come up with ways to implement this simple of system of flexing real people power. We are the little guys, but together we are stronger than all of them put together, when this is done at a global scale then we can expect real change, but we all must be involved and committed to follow through. Strength is in numbers. Thank you. BC
