I suggest #OWS, or a dissenting branch, use the system for our benefit. NEWSFLASH! the 1% get things done because they have money.
Start a political Superpac or 501 (c)(4) and have us 99% contribute money to (Y)OUR cause. Do what the 1% do and start a few Superpacs. Create dialectics that confront the institutions that oppress the 99%.
Instead of being a pathetic Oliver Twist asking for more, a Huey Long type has to stand up on equal footing and deliver some heavy blows to the powers that be.
Build a sophisticated headquarters that delivers a strong political impact that will help the 99%. Help the 99% get good people in this govt. We need to rattle the cages of our hijacked corrupt govt from within. Begging from the outside only gets people beat up and arrested!
Start a professional WEB news channel. Have an army of reporters investigating all the institutionalized corruption the shameful corporate media intentionally ignores. We need tenacious reporters poking their noses into all the 1%'s wrong doings. Expose the crooks in Govt, banks, the fed, msm, etc, etc, etc! Broadcast professional polished news reports that will gain notoriety with the public.
It's demoralizing to watch #OWS sink deeper into irrelevance. The results of solely protesting have demonstrated it's limits. People need to believe they have a fighting chance of winning. The greater their chance of winning, the more risk and commitment people are willing to sacrifice for the cause. Few people will show up to a futile protest only to get beat up and arrested by police. People want results or at least the potential of winning. Most of us know that the idealology of #OWS's anarchist core is unrealistic. Their refusal to involve advocates in politics is a barrier to overcoming the deep entrenchments of the oligarchs.
The masses know that anarchy is a pipe dream. Today's world has too many intractable problems for concensus to solve them. It's an admirable goal that someday humans can peacefully coexist without the need of a govt to protect us from the psychopaths. Unfortunately, today we have psychopaths running our govt controlled by the elites.
