Please do not wait for someone else to do this. We need your action now, and it's so much easier than anything I've ever heard of. Easier than just a coffee/day to save one life. Easier than putting on a happy face everyday in hopes it will make people happier to be around you.

JOIN THE 99% CONGLOMERATE!

It's new, just got started. Its popularity is growing around the world as we speak.

But since it's so new, and the website is not even done, and the initiative is still in the beginning of the first phase of three, people who should be throwing in all their weight are waiting for others to make a move or something.

Is it not worth your time? Ask yourself if what you do everyday is really effecting systemic change, or are you beating your head against surface issues while new ones keep springing up.

It is literally a few minutes and no money to unleash the full potential of the 99%. You do not need to do research. There are no obligations. I can chat with you while you "set it and forget it".

For anyone who has not yet come to understand the Conglomerate, start here: http://groupspaces.com/99Conglomerate/ Rather than reading everything (unless you want to), just ask me questions. I feel like I've answered them all many times, but I'll not get tired of it soon... and love to hear new ones.

It's so, so easy to help, and may be the best solution Occupy has produced (except for Occupy itself of course): http://occupywallst.org/forum/solution-superiority-99-conglomerate-has-no-rival/ Challenge this statement with all your might.

What we need now is selfless unity. We need numbers from around the world together in one place with a common goal and extraordinary effect. Don't just watch the solution and pine away on issues.

I'm sorry, I've tried to read your idea several times and, to be honest, you need to organize a bit and explain it... No doubt you've got enthusiasm, but what is it? Why should I join? What does it do? And please don't reference your links -- they are fragmented and disjointed. Just take some time and explain it, throughly, in one place.

It's understandable, I'm sure it seems that way to fresh eyes. The links are kind of just for my own organizational purposes. It's better for me than a 50 page book.

I'll copy-paste from where I would have linked you, just because I've written it out too many times ( http://groupspaces.com/99Conglomerate/pages/about-the-conglomerate ). It's probably not my most compelling work and might have to edit to make bullets and such appear properly:

"About In case you're not sure what this is for or why it exists, read on.

Basically, it's a network of Occupy movement supporters. It's a way to boycott any 1%-owned corporation where 99% businesses can exist. It's a way for anyone to create any kind of business and quickly get a solid customer-base. Some of the main reasons for doing this are as follows:

fix problems with the way we currently do capitalism
transfer wealth from the 1% to the 99%
improve or increase work conditions and compensation/wages everywhere
separate corporate money from politics
replace certain corporations as the primary "influencer" of government
make way for a truer democracy

How will this be done?

We need people to start joining this group and creating Subsidiaries (see "What's a Subsidiary" tab, if it exists yet). There are three main phases planned (see "The Three Phases" tab, if it exists yet). The phases take us from our current "brutal" capitalism to a progressively more "responsible" capitalism (Phases 2 and 3), and then beyond capitalism altogether.

This website was created as a Phase One project task. The intention was to find a way to create and distribute a list of Subsidiary ads (Directory of Subsidiaries) to supporters of the worldwide Occupy movement. We're finding more and more uses for doing it through groupspaces.com everyday, but this is still a proof-of-concept experiment.

If you've started a subsidiary (which couldn't be easier to do), you'll have the power to influence and steer the Conglomerate as much as any other subsidiary owner can. We'll all draft the "living" Constitution of the Conglomerate together. It will be official before Phase 2 begins, a required milestone marking Phase 1 completion. It will be revised again prior to Phase 3, as "Phase 3" Subsidiaries have different rules. Beyond Phase 3, beyond capitalism, is something for the Conglomerate to democratically decide. We will have the power!"

With my links I can easily find answers to questions you have, though more often than not will spend time clarifying manually based on my perception of who's asking.

Essentially a business directory? Pretty good idea. Good luck.

I joined but I have not finished setting up my business yet. I have two businesses but not sure which one I want to advertise yet.

May I help you to help save the world in under 5 minutes?

Now that would be one hell of a trick... By all means, continue.
