a new strategy for change

end occupy - begin mobile

the only constant in nature is change

the occupation (as a strategy is doomed to failure) because the authorities can establish control over a stationary location with minimum resources

(ex: occupy ny/atlanta/oakland/san diego and others)

several hundred police can control several thousand occupiers but if occupy went mobile the mobile will have several advantages of creating numerous situations/locations that can produce an unlimited array of options that is not available for occupy

the occupy as a stationary event is subject to numerous problems among them permits sanitation etc including acting as a magnet for people with their own agenda and becoming a easy to control event (much to the joy of the authorities)

if occupy went mobile (rather than 1000 occupiers vs 300 police) you have 50 groups of 10 - 50 persons (groups should be of different numbers so authorities cant predict size) spread over 50 locations the authorities dont have the resources to establish domination

50 groups doing 50 different events at 50 different locations (ex: banks/streets/bridges/malls/schools) can totally disrupt the control of authorities

occupy by being in one location for any length of time allows authorities to aquire strength thru harrasment/regulations/etc and eventual defeat (destruction of personal property etc) while mobile allows inclusion of allies (ex: anarchists can to their thing) diversity of tactics (ex: flash mobs in banks/malls folks who want to get arrested can block streets and bridges) and opportunities to confront smaller groups of police (giving mobile a chance to talk and get them on our side)

also mobile allows for chaos theory to come into play where authorites cant predict outcomes while occupy reduces outcomes with predictable results (closure/evictions of occupy sites)

one must also take into account the weather the winter will sap the strength/patience/endurance of occupy while mobile strikes from a position of strength warmth and locations of their choosing

"To capture the enemy's army, is better than to destroy it; to take intact a battalion, a company or a five-man squad is better than to destroy them. For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."


strength and courage to my brothers and sisters
