I'm retired, former theologian and liberal preacher. How can I get involved in some kind of think tank? Here's a thought for it: We can get an idea of the breadth and depth of the worldwide movements by listing what they are NOT:
-- They're not aligned with any religion
-- nor nationality
-- nor ethnic group, race, sex
-- nor any political party

The energy/spirit comes from a place deeper than gods, nations, economies, or politics. Because of the social media, people the world over are realizing this is one voice coming from all countries. It's a response to the economic fascism created by Friedman's economic theories (as Naomi Klein detailed in her SHOCK DOCTRINE). I see this as a movement with the potential to create another "Axial Age." This time, rather than wondering how we should live -- Golden Rule, Compassion, etc. -- we're struggling to make our leaders, armies, political and economic movers and shakers re-orient our societies, away from the demands of capitalism and corporations, toward human-centered cultures, where the "center" demands no less than free education and health care, etc. The MSM and 1% don't get it because we don't fit into their structures. But as Einstein once said, we can't solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.
Ok, probably too much. But I'd like to get involved in a kind of think tank some way. You folks are people the future will look back on as heroes, if you/we can keep expanding our membership -- police, soldiers, politicians, etc.
