I don't know enough about OWS to know if anything beyond a generalized protest is in the offing. I'm opposed to violence and believe in the rule of law. I think 99ers should be encouraged to make personal changes which when multiplied by millions would register beyond any efforts to grassroots reform or challenge the established system owned by corporations and plutocrats. So what could an individual do?
1.) I think occupygeorge.com is brilliant. If printing on paper money is illegal, print the message on mailing labels and apply to the money.
2.) How about downsizing / life-editing [smaller home; fewer possessions]? 3.)Just say "Frak You to Big Oill": sell gasoline/diesel powered transportation and buy a bicycle or inexpensive electric bicycle / e-scooter. Downsize from multiple cars to one car and bicycle(s).
4.) If moving is in the cards, try to relocate in high walkscore.com scoring area.
5.) Quit paying interest / owe nothing / declare bankruptcy if necessary [the corpoRATocracy feeds off of interest and debt]
6.) Eschew / combat Planned Obsolescence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=endUcoHsCVY What do you think? I'm especially hoping to hear from boots on the ground OWSers.
