Try to keep the content of your posts about other fellow citizenry you consider beneath yourself, and remember to sneer and jeer at eachother, while those above you who are grinding you under their heels sit back enjoying another fat cigar mildly amused by your in fighting. Their job is made so much easier by the intolerance that the majority here show to eachother.

pretty sparks. That's all I see on this site, up to this point ...a few momentary bursts of unfiltered energy, yes... but none the less, pretty sparks.

You are for the most part captured by one party or another, and your strength seems to be in attacking one another and calling eachother names like little children trying to establish dominance on a 1st grade playground. So I leave you to your dogma, and raw emotion. After all your differences are what matters most at this moment in time. Keep focusing your energy there. That'll get things done.

Peace out to those who burn bright and clear here. You know who you are. Keep thinking outside the paradigm and spreading the word. Liberty. Freedom. For ALL.

This is the wrong arena for debate, to me. I don't want to debate any of you personally. Personally I would rather debate the policy. I wish you alll well.

But I hear what you are saying and there is truth to it. Example related to a post I made: http://occupywallst.org/forum/fox-news-spreading-toxic-rumors/#comment-95208

Still, the ows movement is young and may self-organize at some point.

Ideas: http://sociology.ucsc.edu/whorulesamerica/change/science_freshstart.html "Social scientists have done a great many studies documenting the inequalities and injustices of the class-based social structure of the United States. However, the evidence for class domination and extreme inequality doesn't mean that it makes good political sense to frame political conflict primarily in terms of one economic class against another in trying to bring about egalitarian social change. It tends to reduce political struggles to economic issues, and to create problems of defining who is us and who is them that have led to endless arguments about who is a worker, who is a petite bourgeois, and who is a capitalist. If the problem is developing new policies and gaining political power, which it is, then the struggle should be framed from the start as a conflict over power and values, not as a struggle between social classes. The in-group should be all those who come to embrace the program of the egalitarian movement, and the out-group should be all those who oppose such changes. If the conflict is framed in this way, an egalitarian coalition has a chance to win over the moderates, neutrals, and independents who currently identify with capitalists, and who might be offended by blanket criticisms of them as a class. It may even attract dissident members of the capitalist class who transcend their class interests, and in the process become very valuable in legitimating the movement to those in the middle who are hesitant to climb on board."
