Recipe for a failed Revolt:

  • Have an organization labeled with a very negative connotation such as 'Anarchists' lead the opposition. Sure to lose a huge % of supporters right off the bat.

  • Ensure the organization will NEVER participate in Politics or any other influential entities. This will yank all the teeth out of your organization's bite and put a nice glass ceiling on your organization's influence.

  • Do NOT have eloquent, motovational spokespeople to fire up public fervor. ie: A "Huey Long" type. Keep the leaders unknown and shadowy .

  • Support many, many controversial causes. Eventually losing more and more support as the list grows. Support gay rights, lose 10% of your supporters. Support illegal imigrants rights, lose another 10% support. Keep adding more and more volatile causes as you watch your support dwindle. This will ensure your organization boils down to a dense core of lap dogs and made highly unappealing to the 99%.

  • Do not involve your organization in cutting edge technology to garner support. Such as an internet news channel like RT news, etc. That way your organization's voice can never be heard by the 99%. Feign effort by limiting your technical reach to a low tech forum such as this one.

  • Have your supporters protest in public. Demonstrating to the viewing population that opposing the establishment will only result in beatings and incarceration. It's also important to dress down and maintain a threatening look. For the wardrobe, think: "The Crow" NOT "Friends", thus alienating the average middle class citizen.

  • Stick to ONLY having your supporters get public beatings. Do not introduce any new tactics that will result in your organization becoming influential and acheiving success.

  • Have strict censorship of outspoken dissent. Label them trolls, Republican'ts, Dem'olrats, Kochheads, etc. Appoint a forum moderator with no life and delusions of grandeur. Have many post and threads removed and deleted. Foster paranoia and isolate your regime from outsiders. Considers new ideas as a threat to your control.

  • Just add water.

There you have it, a perfectly powerless opposition that will never appeal to 99% of the 99%.

Think about it. The elites knew they were going to start class warfare, introduce austerity cuts and attack constitutional rights. They decided to first soften up the population to prepare them for the shock of the new agenda.. So they created Occupy as a toothless revolt. It's clever to design a revolt with built in flaws that limit it's success. Occupy could then demonstrate to the population that opposition to the establishment will only result in failure. It's a great idea to demonstrate failed opposition, demoralizing the public from starting a legitimate, successful one.

Occupy has turned into a wet dream for the 1%. The People are desparately looking for leadership and an opposition that can acheive success for them. Hopefully a new organization that the 99% can truely support will arise.

Add to the recipe a ban on conspiracies.

Wrong.A movement where everyone is a leader and no one is a leader is just what the Oligarchs don't want.To easily defeat a resistance movement,it is necessary to kill or jail the leaders.A loosely knit,diverse,leaderless movement like #OWS which appears and disappears,forms and reforms,hustles and flows,looks like it's dead,etc.-this is EXACTLY what we need and is our best and only hope.Every attack only spreads it.LOL!

The 1% has their brand of anarchy, it's called laissez-faire capitalism. We have ours.

Yes, the regime's gestapo has censored it. This one will soon be censored too. Expect to see many copies reposted in the future.

Repost it when the moderator "DKA" puts his wheelchair away for the night and goes to sleep. That will give you more time before jart's little pet can censor it.

You right. I guess he's just "Another Brick in the WALL". Wall st isn't the only thing with "WALLS". It seems Occupy has many "WALLS" of their own.

You might consider toning down the rhetoric. Your points should be considered. This discussion should not be shadow banned .

BYW, are you unfriendly to our cause or just OWS's tactics?

[-] 3 points by UnFriendlyObserverC (43) 5 years ago

Only the tactics. I'm one of the 99%, so it wouldn't be wise for me to be unfriendly against myself. Just don't want the lyrics "Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss." to ring true. Or 'Won't get fooled again" for that matter.

Reports of Occupy's death have been greatly exaggerated.
Hey look it is like student government no one goes to school indefinitely so there is a constant turn over in student government and so each new group must relearn what the outgoing ones just learned. The result was that when I was involved with Student government at a prominent northwestern University we were at a disadvantage against the non elected university administrators. We had to get a FOIA to get a copy of the University's budget and surprise surprise when we read it we found that 51% of all income went to the athletics department??!! Whaaaaat? yes that's right. They reduced student government to a mere popularity contests and meaningless drivel. The real powers were contemptuous of the students, they were outraged at our audacity to make recommendations about the budget and rejected them all out of hand.
It is entirely possible that Occupy Wallstreet was a method of diverting the attention and efforts of people in New York away from the preceding occupations of Bloomburgville and the struggle to stop cuts to the New York city services. And that it was financed by individuals who sought to indelibly bind the movement to ineffectual 'Consensus' methods that result in an inability to make meaningful social decision or to organize effective resistance to the equivalent of Russian oligarchs. Buy a copy of Robert's rules of order and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QZlp3eGMNI Democracy is the rule of the 99% "consensus" is the rule one percent by blocking the democratic vote. right now people have left occupy in frustration with the 'consensus' process. Will they return when it reforms around democratic principles? stay tuned.
