Agreed. It is what we do with those tweets that matters most. I love where this group's head is . . . had to put down a clear missive for Month Three.
My name is shared with many. My social security number is 237-59-9394. My birthdate is 5-31-80. My Bank of America checking account number is 23623-61522, overdrawn by $633 - all late fees. My address is homeless, I am currently near Los Angeles by way of Santa Fe, New Mexico, the land of enrichment, by way of the big apple.
The world is watching. I have only let my thoughts drift from our cause once (since Mr. Jobs passed) to dive into a painting, one that I discovered was actually a digital photo. Do remind one another to take a breath in the name of beauty. 24-hour news hacks are waiting for worse mayhem, right behind false prophets chomping to verify us the catalysts of the apocalypse.
You, the OWS originators, are the advanced people, the leaderless conduits of enlightenment: the most peaceful time in recorded history. By the end of next year, the creative humanitarian collective OWS will be responsible for the end of a cruel alexandrian age, a definitive beginning of the end of mass human suffering . . . thanks to you, the advanced people who danced Hurricane Irene away.
The majority of America agrees with our sentiments & anti-misinformation. Great students of history fear our movement will fizzle out or that a violent fringe shouting for us will draw battle lines. To my mind, in our purest form, we do not have a single human enemy. We are a town square of millions suffering actively for proper Democracy, a wiser society.
I publish my SSN because I feel lucky to live in a country that protects civil liberties. We should continuously reflect on what is beautiful about living today, to balance our dissent, to help our less advanced brothers & sisters understand this is about enlightenment, humanity, wisdom.
This is my first Halloween without a piece of candy : ( As a new month rolls in, when the world calls for a seemingly familiar 'revolution' to list its demands, our sensitive members feel like the terrorists in movies who hold an 'innocent' group hostage . . . acquiescing to pundits & meaningless pressure defies what makes us New, Fresh, Civil with all humans.
We don't demand. We hold no hostages. We suffer actively. Just as Progressive is a complicated word for politicians, I hesitate to use the word Revolution as a lover of peaceful solutions. This is new. This is advancement. Beautiful. Musical. Inviting. Healing. Democracy. Harmonious. Integrity. Inspired. Badass. Revolution is right on, but used alone it is not a word that inspires UNCONDITIONAL PEACE. We need unconditional peace.
We need each and every police officer to know we actively suffer for their children. We need the Tea Party to know where we bond, that we remember the crosshairs they posted, that we remember in no time Senator Gabrielle Giffords' will power prevented a government shutdown. We will aim crosshairs in the same places this election cycle, but our weapon of choice is the arrow of Cupid. We seek unconditional peace.
Our colors are red, white & blue. To the point of intentional redundancy, a consensus has organically emerged, one violent OWS fist could end it all . . . we study, we occupy, we discuss, we reflect. If someone preaches Occupy with violent rage & hate, we know it comes from a place of self-defense & suffering. They need a hug or help paying a bill, they need to know we suffer together, that our collective enemy does not have a heartbeat.
Indeed be careful with your temperament, language & tone. We need to establish decency in our dialogue, math with our solutions, reason with our romance & find more ways to be positively peaceful with our hands & logos.
Miran Istina, the teenaged cancer fighter occupying San Fran, is Queen of my world. Each and every one of you are free to pick the Queen of your world, your mind - your very own spaceless place to occupy openly. Keep it open.
Personal OWS November goals:
A) To help inspire a polis online, a town square of all Occupations of a Wise Society, to replace arbitrary polls. One vote per IP address/Social Media Account . . . no more 1000 person polls speaking for all Americans . . . an official OWS poll might state the actual amount of people who voted first. Individuals' voting history will be logged, compared & contrasted . . . this is one beautiful way of defining our partisanship & why Democratically.
2) To help inspire one OWS solutions book by Thanksgiving, starting today (Tuesday) . . . a cookbook of sorts . . . not demands . . . OWS (Occupy Wall Street or Occupations of a Wise Society) Food for Thought . . . recipes for the immediate future . . . a project for Occupy Everywhere submitting political/social/economic recipes . . . one hearty OWS cookbook. I nominate Br. Cornell West to write the forward in the name of pragmatic peace & love for thought without motives.
Quagmire One: How to demand unconditionally positive vibes without being dickish or overly hippie about it? Gandhi comes to mind. Steve Jobs more so, he believed in love & beauty & how temporal life is. We don't need demands. We need the recipes gathered by Thanksgiving & a way to vote amongst one another.
I am one person, no one with $-633. This was sent only to OWS . . . this is your baby, I am no one.

it's not all that
it is being over thought here
we need to optimize - synthesis our message
and twitter is global so that is good access and we can get more
direct info globally
institutionalizing is not the idea
creating some structure does not exclude openness
it is not a black and white thing
and any direction in terms of wordage would just be adherence to ideas
and a hope
we do not monitor every person that speaks to the media through pr but
they have guidlines
