I'd like to ask two honest questions:
- What is the purpose of this forum?
- Why are you here?
It seems to me that most users here are not OWS protesters, not the ones you see in the street anyhow.
Additionally, what is discussed on this forum does not seem to have much affect on OWS. After all, OWS decisions are taken at general assemblies and most people here do not attend those.
Also, most of the postings on this forum have to do with political issues, conspiracy theories, TV ads, etc... and none of these topics have much to do with OWS which is a non-political protest.
Furthermore, there are very few postings about anarcho-syndicalism, or other related theories; topics which are at the heart of OWS.
Finally, this site does not seem to be made up of experts. For example, there are discussions on certain economic issues, but it seems to me that it would be much more gratifying to discuss these in an economic forum attended by many experts in the field.
I don't want to put down OWS in any way. I'm seriously asking these questions. I'm not really sure what the true purpose of this site is. What is it? And, more importantly, why are you here? Do you think the discussions here can make a difference? If so, how?
