Clearly we have Thugs on both sides of the right-left paradigm.

I have supported the left and suffered. I have supported the right and been rejected.

Well, this is important and serious. I think we MUST review the following links about Humanism, celebration of the individual, and valuing the individual...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanism

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Individualism

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-actualization

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-determination

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereignty

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism

Liberalism first became a distinct political movement during the Age of Enlightenment, when it became popular among philosophers and economists in the Western world. Liberalism rejected the notions, common at the time, of hereditary privilege, state religion, absolute monarchy, and the Divine Right of Kings.

Look... we have kids... some kids don't learn the same way that other kids do. We have to defend the right to be different. We are not computers or ... slaves. We learn differently... we think differently ... and people that are different are "Our Artists, our Creative Thinkers, and our Philosophers".

Damn it. The point is that the Thugs among us are Destroyers. The Point is that the Thugs among us on both sides suppress voices, intelligence, and creativity.

Make no mistake there are Nazis on both sides that just agitate and suppress other people. Somehow... we have to be able to be activists and protestors and educators without brining Thugs with us.

I don't know how people can't see this. Do you see this??

You can accuse me personally about:

1) Being weak or not fighting back
2) Being Gay
3) Being submissive, lazy, and keeping quiet about government abuses
4) Being part of the system that is now overwhelming all of us with the collective dependence of must of our country
5) Accuse me of whatever you want - does that mean I can't say some thing smart, new, or creative.??

Balkanization is a danger, but the biggest danger is that we turn on each other, reject each other, and trust the MSM news. Who controls our prejudices?? We all have groups. We all have indoctrination.

How have you been indoctrinated??

Now, it the time to shed your indoctrination and your Nazi friends. Your friends, the thugs, are dangerous to your development and to you future safety.... There is no more use for fighting, aggressive behavior, and ostricization of other community people.

OWS seems to have few values or structure to sustain it's long term outlook. Many here are talking about problems with people being rejected or banned. I have no inside information about how this is happening. Can a "Mod" type in some info about the loss of talent here in the OWS Forum? Are some political thoughts being suppressed by the US Government?? Have the Federal Government now captured influence in this OWS Forum?? Is COINTELPRO at work here?

oh, you do ask far too many questions, far, far too many questions . . .

And RT stands for Russia Today - and since you bring up COINTELPRO and RT all at the same time I must confess . . .

It would be fascinating to examine the entire breadth and depth of influence exerted globally by the intel/counter intel machinations that ripple through our daily lives with the silent regularity of a single heart beat . . .

While I generally agree with much of what you have been posting, I do have some "issues"

the word "nazi" is over the top - sort of like the "N" word. Other than discussing history, I just dont think it is ever appropriate or necessary. You can get more accuracy by using "facist". I do not believe in censorship - but this is IMHO. Consider the worst drug kingpins or religious dictators, generally, with few exceptions, their PRIMARY goal is their own power & money - not controlling the world
Also, I would like us to concentrate on FEASABLE SOLUTIONS.

So many people here report problems such as fracking, bees, oil, economy. All good info - but OWS will be able to start growing again only if we push for realistic achievable solutions
the WHAT: severing democracy from crapitalism seems to be the solution to almost everything.
the HOW: HJR29 & OWS http://www.corporationsarenotpeople.webuda.com

When obvious injustice dominates, we need to dissolve the petty difference the the elite have created within us with power over media and society.

Good questions. But the answers are not what we need. They might help though.

Is our future normally secured by agreeing on what we need and acting together to gain it!
