Forum Post: Legit Question: Is this a bit of a contradiction?

First let me start by saying I have not been to any OWS event and I have been trying to read up on it but please excuse me if I have no idea what I am talking about.

Everything I have read on the OWS site seems very inclusive the way meetings are run ect. are set up to allow voices to be heard and consensus to be made. Specifically in the guide for assembly it talks about the current systems paradigm as "confrontation" and the way assembly is done is referred to as "construction". It seems like a bit of a contradiction then to me to have this paradigm of collective thinking and 100% consensus and then still have this binary model of the 99% vs. the 1%, or us vs. them, or the open-minded vs. the close-minded, the greedy vs. the humble, ect.

Any thoughts or corrections?

You are right! The 1% should get a fair and equal say.
