Grant me a moment to reach into the far depths of my soul and pull out a big thank you for jart. It's not wrapped, but it's genuine. Almost single-handedly, she has programmed this wonderful forum which has been my Internet hangout for a month and a half now.
These past few weeks, I have been fortunate to learn so much from the forum's interesting and unique posters. It's here that I was introduced to the true meaning of anarchy, to Graeber, and to the defining ideas of Occupy. This would not have been possible without jart.
She has worked extremely hard, and I'm happy to say that after a few weeks of hiatus she is back! She made a commit today which indicates some intense development is coming our way! https://github.com/jart/occupywallst/commit/d5bb6fc6f019eeb3e4bd43b0e46ed4bb6ce42879
If I have been critical of Occupy, it was only because I wanted it to become the best movement that it could be. God knows we need drastic change to solve the world's many problems. Our governments keep meeting in serious halls for serious discussions, but nothing ever seems to improve. Let's hope Occupy is the spark that begins the ascent of our many civilizations to a new plateau; to never before seen heights of understanding, respect, and accomplishment. Change is desperately needed, and there is no better time than now. We must rise to the occasion to better ourselves. For all of us; for the betterment of manmind. We cannot afford to let this opportunity slip away. We cannot let Occupy become a mere footnote in the annals of history. Occupy is more than a dream, it's a much needed cure for our nations' numerous maladies.
I'm happy to say the latest poster is absolutely gorgeous and doesn't have a hint of violence in it. This is a very big step forward, and I congratulate Occupy for it. Well done!
This one's for jart and Occupy. Thank you for changing me, thank you for changing all of us. Let's assemble once more!
