OWS must become transparent! It must be open to the opinions of all protesters, not only to those of the anarchists.
The working group in charge of press releases must name its authors and accept input from the majority of protesters. Many people are dissatisfied with the slants taken in recent OWS news reports.
The working group in charge of this website should name its moderators and be open to the opinions of all protesters. Banning people for giving opinions that clash with the anarchists' philosophies is extremely detrimental to OWS.
The anarchists must let go of their firm gripe over the NYCGA. They should promote real democracy through consensus, not a false democracy with themselves as puppet masters behind the curtain.
OWS has become a totalitarian protest. This is what is going to kill it, not the police. OWS has leaders, but they are hidden behind a curtain. OWS has leaders, but they have no term limits. This is detrimental to all protesters.
America's corruption is worse than ever. OWS is a much needed protest to fight against this problem, but it must become transparent if it is to succeed. Or else, the trust of protesters will wander to another group and OWS will die.
