The Occupy/99% Movement faces a legitimate problem. The symptoms seem to stem primarily from corporate dominance of the system, so let’s call it the Corporate Dominance problem.
Wouldn’t it be nice if our movement succeeded? Most don’t. They draw a bit of press, raise a ruckus at first, and then slide into oblivion over the weeks, months, or years.
So how can we ensure that we succeed? What might happen if we used the same tool that business uses to solve its problems?
The tool is analysis. Once we’ve analyzed the Corporate Dominance problem, our disagreements on what to do should reduce because we can see where our efforts are best directed. We will have a shared explanation of what the problem is, why it’s happening, and what the solutions are that have the best chance of success. Our goals, strategies, and tactics should become clear.
See this link for a peek at such an analysis: http://www.thwink.org/sustain2/articles/016/CorporateDominanceLoop.htm
Will something like this make the 99% Movement a success instead of just another historical footnote?
