Join Occupy Together's collaborative effort to create a Bridge to the Ground. Democracy 2.0.

We need your help! There are many ways in which you can contribute to making this idea of governing ourselves a reality! Are you a programmer, are you a thinker, are you a designer, are you good at reviewing ideas, are you an expert in law, etc... We need all of you to create the better world. Help us! Join and contribute!

Why talk about politics, when you can actually participate in helping us do politics! Stop wasting your time discussing the democrats vs republicans. Stop wasting your time talking about the finer points of political policies you have no control over. Stop wasting your time writing letters to representatives who don't read them. Don't talk politics! Do politics!

I am trying hard not to say "silly nonsense"


What Direct Democracy Could Achieve
USA Patriot Act Repealed
All Public Universities To Be Free
Pharmaceutical Law Revised to End Corruption H.R. 676, the United States National Health Insurance Act, also known as “expanded and improved Medicare for all,” has moved through Maximum Wage Law Passes


It would be easier to outlaw GREED


DD would be impossible without constitutional amendments
DD is risky without everyone having a computer
DD is risky until hacking is 100% stopped


Almost everything you want can be accomplished is a much more simple way - that is easier to explain & has 80% support in America


I have been WORKING in NYC OWS for over a year, and it is very sad that so many smart people are working on silly impossibles.
It is one of the reasons OWS has lost so many people


DD, alternate currency, visions and goals, proportional voting -

"DD would be impossible without constitutional amendments."

I'm glad you know what TJ has to say
NO elected politician alive or judge in this country would agree with you
OR
prove me wrong

[-] 3 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

99% of elected officials anywhere are ignorant morons and why would I need their approval anyway?

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world."

Directly from the DoI written by TJ himself.

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Change in government, system and/or regime according to TJ does not require constitutional amendment, but simply just the consent of the governed.

Tyranny is the only prerequisite for a change in the system.

I, nor you or atone else needs the consent of the government to rebel.

U ought 2 get familiar with Occupy Together before U start trying 2 tell what "U" think it is about. That way U don't end up contradicting Occupy Together. And out yourself as a foolish liar.


http://www.occupytogether.org/aboutoccupy/#issues

Also from further up on the same page:

how does the movement work to achieve these goals?

RESIST

In the spirit and tradition of civil disobedience #occupy takes to the streets to protest corporate greed, abuse of power, and growing economic disparity.

RESTRUCTURE

occupy empowers individuals to lead others into action by gathering in the commons (public spaces, parks and online) as engaged citizens to demonstrate a culture based on community and mutual aid. We will be the change we are seeking in the world.

REMIX

Work to make fundamental changes in the system.

[-] 0 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

See my thread titled "The Common Law Republic".

Some of your ideas are so bad, but your focus definately should not be on the economy or money or employment.

Your focus should be on process.

Dont get butt hurt when people critsize. Move on and try to convince someone else.

Using words like "together" and "solidarity" turn people off because it implies that it is your way or the high way. Let others speak their mind.

[-] 0 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

Did you even read the link?

It's not about the things you mention, and anybody is welcomed to join and contribute in various ways. Everybody can speak their mind on that site. Not only that, your ideas are considered useful and the good ones get implemented in practice.

You shouldn't judge things you know nothing about.

[-] 2 points by gsw (2727) 1 year ago

I wonder did you coin the term bridge to the ground. It's catchy and I once almost used it.

I read the link. I was into it, initially.

Why hadn't you brought it up here till today, if you have thought it so great, and you had really worked on it?

I give you benefit of doubt and chance to explain.

[-] -1 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

Bridge to the Ground is indeed a term I came up with. It was meant specifically for connecting Internet users to Occupy affinity groups, not for e-democracy in general.

The community at Occupy Together didn't want me to discuss http://i-govern.org on this website. They changed their mind after a lot of convincing. As you know, most discussions here have nothing to do with Occupy and they felt like most users here rather enjoyed the political system we have in place with representatives. They were afraid the crappy discussions we have here would become a reality on our website if I mentioned it here.

[-] 1 points by gsw (2727) 1 year ago

Any regrets you didn't listen or stay anonymous.

You do add an edginess or excitement to Ows.org, woke us up

Well the representative system is broken.

How soon till we will have the edemocracy ready to test. Some hope very soon.

We'd like to give the people good news.

Some still worried article v could get hijacked, in opening for new constitution, or it might not transition well.

[-] -2 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

I can't say when it will be ready. It's a huge project. Hopefully sooner than later. In the meantime, we could always try the demoex system used in Sweden.

No, I really have no grudges. I like to debate issues using arguments and well formed logic. It doesn't matter to me if we don't agree as long as there is a good debate. I just have fun with you and shooz because you always attack me with logical fallacies. I don't have a grudge against you guys, I just think you're two unintelligent posters. I also find it funny how you became the self-proclaimed "saviors" and prosecutors of this forum. You attack so many people. I find you both quite pathetic, but I have no grudges. I imagine you like Batman (you), and Robin (shooz). It's funny. Even cute in a way. I like how you both use the same computer lab in your retirement home.

Who you think I am is of no importance. I can't remember any important discussions with you except that you always attack me with flurries of logical fallacies and always do it as mob attacks with your partner DKAtoday. You're part of the Twinkle Team - self-proclaimed prosecutors, "saviors" and all around dictators of this forum. You are unable to debate. You attack all ideas contrary to your own with fallacies. That's all you ever do here.

It's not my website. It's a website by Occupy Together. Shooz is not criticizing my ideas, he's attacking me personally because he doesn't like me for some reason. He attacks all my comments and postings. He has no arguments. For some reason, he's against Occupy initiatives. That's fine. I'm just wondering why someone who doesn't support Occupy projects spends so much time here. That makes little sense to me. Do democrats spend all their time on republican sites?

In my opinion, invading someone's posting which advertizes an important Occupy Together project and repeating over and over that it is spam is what is spam.

How about some words on Global warming?

I would expect nothing but spamtacular minimums from you on any actual issue.

[-] 0 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

Global warming is a real problem caused by humans. Unfortunately, it won't be stopped by the government system we have in place. The only chance we have is to topple the government and replace it with a system of e-democracy like the one I'm working on at: http://i-govern.org If we govern ourselves, many amazing things will be possible. Until then, we'll just see governments that keep failing us no matter what party is in office.

I also talked a lot about anarcho-syndicalism which is related to unions.

When you get tired of attacking those with different ideas than your own, and realize that it's perfectly OK to disagree, come by http://i-govern.org We could use your help. Tell your friends too!

You think Obama will stop Global Warming, or some other president? Ok, fine. I don't. I believe we need to govern ourselves. http://i-govern.org When you're passed being a supporter of the democrats and realize that supporting Occupy and anarchy are the way to go, you are more than welcomed to participate in creating the better world with us. It's never too late to change.

I disagree. Most occupiers I met are intelligent enough to judge ideas on their own merit, without being compelled to make the fallacy of appeal to authority. I also have many supporters here. Not everyone misunderstands Occupy. Sure, you, shooz, GF, and others in the Twinkle Team act as the site's self imposed prosecutors and attack those with ideas that differ from your own. However, the other readers can plainly see you have no arguments of worth, just logical fallacies.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26672) 1 year ago

Here's yet another logical fallacy.

What is this twinkle team you keep mentioning as if it's important to your "argument"?

I know it will be difficult, but try not to make anything up.

[-] -1 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

Shooz and DKAtoday are the leaders of Twinkle Team. They are the self-appointed prosecutors on this forum. They attack all ideas they disagree with using logical fallacies, and high five all users they agree with. They are unable to debate any issue in a serious scholarly fashion. Shooz and DKAtoday live together in the same retirement home. They are an old gay couple, which is kinda cool actually.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26672) 1 year ago

Although, logic isn't your specialty, I think you can do it, you just have to make up your mind.

[-] -2 points by BridgeToTheGroundTeam (-97) 1 year ago

I think you're gay, not that there's anything wrong with that. You and DKAtoday are a couple. You live in the same retirement home. You have few friends, and that's why you always use this site. You prefer bingo over chess because it's easier. You're an old grumpy old man. That's two "old". Your grandchildren don't see you often because they don't enjoy your bad moods. You once worked in a position of power. You were a valet attendant. That's why you want to be the forum's self-appointed prosecutor. You are used to having your way over others.

Everyone is welcomed to join. We are open to various points of views, and won't call someone a troll because he disagrees.

You don't have to trust me. It's an Occupy Together initiative. I'm asking you to support the idea, the project, not to support me. I'm just one man out of thousands.

When you realize that it's OK to disagree with others while debating, and that it's important to use well formed arguments instead of logical fallacies, please join our efforts. Tell your friends too! The more people we have, the better our chances of success.

I'm an Occupy supporter and always have been. I criticized Occupy heavily on many issues because I think criticism is the only way to improve something. The posters were improved because of my criticism that they were too violent. That was a good thing. I have also worked as a programmer for many Occupy software projects. I'm now concentrating my efforts on http://www.i-govern.org/home/ because I believe democracy is of utmost importance.

I was labelled a troll by a user who, like you, did not understand Occupy. I explained to him that is was about anarchy, he freaked, and started calling me a troll. Others followed his line of thought without thinking. It's funny how rumors are started.

Here's that thread: http://occupywallst.org/forum/save-your-mind-from-infiltration-ignore-the-psyops/

"He thinks he's defending the republic with his twisted games; we know we're trying to save it. Leave it at that."

Like you, that user thought Occupy was about saving the republic, not toppling it and replacing it with anarchy.

A spammer AND a conspiracy theorist?

That's quite a resume.

Plus you've offered NO truth about who you really are.

Frightened?

I believe so, and spammers deserve to feel frightened.

I believe you are gay, which is perfectly fine. You live in the same retirement home as DKAtoday, and actually sleep with him. The problem is you both haven't come out to your families and this causes you a lot of stress. I suggest coming clean. Being gay is OK.

Spamming insults now???

Oh the shame of being a spammer, and lacking in anything that even remotely resembles dignity.

There's nothing wrong with being gay. It's only an insult in the ears of homophobes.

That's not the context you used spammer.

Not even close.

Why not give a hint as to why you came to that conclusion?

What "facts" do you base your assumption on?

Whats wrong with your BS is you know it is false - so your stating your BS - IS an attempt at insult - your BS is then also an insult to the gay community - because you are trying to use being gay as an insult.

How are you gonna kick yourself in the balls Next?
