OWS has everyone's attention and the world is asking for suggestions of things now that might help

How about starting to anonymously brainstorm online... about nonviolent, productive ideas that might help?

Collecting those ideas in this space for everyone to read might help to produce online issue-based working groups.

As a start.... all non-violent, creative, helpful, realistic, and possibly doable suggestions are welcome.

Here is the question:

What would the world look like if...?

Please answer in 99 words or less.

Here is mine:

What would the world look like if there was one place online where people could make a suggestion that could be read by other interested participants, suggestions could be grouped by idea or type, those ideas read openly by other interested people, who then could offer workable and possible solutions for groups of others, with the hope of contributing creative, non-violent, possibly even hilarious, positive ways to show support and appreciation of the ideas of the 99%?

Our problems are huge. Protesting only shows our anger. But it doesn't provide any solutions. Therefore, we're not making any forward movement or impact despite our size and determination.

Here is the best thing I've run into. Check out osixs and the nuclear option. It's simply brilliant. But most important it will empower the people so we don't have to ask the 1% for anything.

Look people! We have this all wrong. This is not about them. We are the real power (99%). 1% is nothing. It doesn't matter what they think or what they want. To hell with them. We are the real problem and it's in our heads. For some reason as mighty as we are, we seem to think we have to fight from a position of weakness. This is absurd and exactly why we're in this mess. We don't need to protest 1% of the people for change. It's up to us to make the change. Remember - this is a democracy and the land of the free. Majority rules. That's how you take back your country. Let those ass-wholes sleep outside. The real revolution has to take place in your head first.

Change of plan. With the proper lighting we could turn this into a really cool musical. South Pacific with roaches.

people had brains?

Then there would be no internet and no forums and no corruption and no wall street.

Brainstorming?... Ha!ha!ha!ha!ha! What brains? I don't see any brains on this forum
