Forum Post: What Projects Are You Working On To Advance Our Revolution?

I'm building an anarchic forum. One without a user/moderator dichotomy, but instead where each user is equal and has the ability to fine tune the moderation of the forum for him or herself. Each user can control what he or she sees and who is able to see what he or she writes. It will be open source.

What type of projects are you working on to advance our revolution?

Let's share ideas!

Organising protests, and teaching people how to grow their own food without having land.

That's awesome! Growing and printing our own food is the future! Are there still Occupy groups in Australia?

Occupy Sydney just got locked up under new legislation.

Court case is imminent.

I kinda thought the video was lack-lustre, and the crew were very uninterested, but I guess they've been camped out for a couple of years, so......

Ya well, Occupy dealt with some big blows. Only the true anarchists remain.

You are misinformed in saying that only "true anarchists" remain in Occupy. Over time as frustration grows and more people become aware though, more people will become radicalized.

And yes Occupy has been attacked by many groups (not necessarily from the people you picked though), and that is mostly because of the corrupt elite wanting to put a lid on it as they fear the power of a people driven movement.

Some people belonging to these groups....pretending to be altruistic Occupiers have even used divisive tactics and lies in trying to subvert this movement in the hopes of putting it to sleep for good. Imagine that!? Hmmm?

most people seek truth

Yes, but people can be swayed by people who are proficient in lying. We only have to look at the past thirty plus years to see that.

Yes, people are becoming radicalized. But to assume that means people will follow the OWS ideals may be a bad assumption. Based on my personal observation it seems like the masses are becoming more radical with a conservative bent. And as the economy is reportedly doing better there is a good chance people will become even more complacent.

Yes, we should all try to do good in the world. But to think peace and love will further OWS ideals probably won’t work.

Yes the conservatives are bent - Boner just said so.

"And as the economy is reportedly doing better...." There the operative word is 'reportedly." People are beginning to realize that that word is implicit with the new norm where young people graduating university do not have the opportunities of generations past, and where people have to accept a smaller piece of the pie while the 1% pig out on the remainder.

I am no expert on Texas, but I think that your perspective might be a bit narrow, and if you visited and listened to people in the more liberal cities of San Antonio or Austin, you might get a better perspective. And if that doesn't do it, try any university, or mill town where the 'good jobs' are gone.

All the recent news reports are saying the economy is doing better, much better in some areas (like Texas). I hear a lot about how bad college grads have it. I'm just not sure it's any worse than it ever has been. Seems to me too many recent grads have a unjustified sense of entitlement.

As for Texas, I live in Austin; I moved back to Texas from San Francisco in 1990 after my company downsized. I graduated from a Texas university in 1970. My point is I've been around the block a few times. My "prospective" is doing just fine. I'm a liberal, but I also live in the real world.

I gave up. Nobody is serious enough to stand behind me.

I heard the cock crow.

Hi... jennifer...

I almost agree with your idea,,,, however..

if you allow people to filter out critique... we might as well be only conversing with ourselves ... no ?

as far as moderation.... well.... I think you have the answer....

let the individual user... and / or thread starter... block the posters who only disrupt ... else ... let them ride un moderated... often their confusion will be turned after discussion

[+] -4 points by jennifer (-67) from Allentown, PA 8 months ago

The idea is to let every user read what he wants and posts to who he wants. The thread starter doesn't control his thread. He only controls who he or she wants to read and who can read what he or she posts. I'm not afraid of filtering out critique because people who really want to engage in serious discussions will not filter out critique. They will embrace it. However, many use forums for high fiving. They don't want to see critique. They should have the right to that also. Anyways, those who don't want to see critique ignore it anyhow.

With such a forum, you'd have a lot more users than here. No one would get banned, and people could form smaller groups if they want to discuss issues with certain specific posters. People could streamline there time. You could come here to talk about anarchy only, another could come to talk about something else. Yet another could come to see everything.
