  •  My feeling is Occupy is our only hope (16+ / 0-)

    But it has to be enough people involved so that the police repression and brutality tactics can't turn it back, and if it tried, the force would have to be so overwhelming that they'd (the police) lose the support of the public.

    Please do me the favor of not responding by stating all the reasons you think this won't ever happen. I already know.

    •  How about I give you the reasons it will happen (5+ / 0-)

      First and foremost because we know how to do it and we've done it.  We can scale it up when more people come out to organize.  The government could shut us down when we were relatively small, but when we start to grow again, as occupy or whatever name it may happen under, there will be nothing they can do.  They have no idea how to stop a mass, leaderless movement, none.

      It's going to happen and it's only a matter of time, and everyone knows it, we're just too afraid to say it.  Well, we need to stop being afraid, a mass movement is here and it's us.

      •  Actually they do but they don't have the (0+ / 0-)

        desire/stomach or the logistics for it.  Ever wonder what the now legendary Rex-84 plans (which probably haven't been updated in decades) were for back in the day?

        I only put the "please do me a favor..." postscript to pre-empt all the "Eeyores" that love to hang out at DKos. As soon as some puts out a hope, dream, or plan of action, these "Eeyore" types can't wait to shit on their parade and list all the reasons why it can't work/won't happen. It's really a drag. They don't offer any ideas themselves (except maybe more of the status quo), they just get their rocks off trying to sound high and mighty by putting other people's ideas down.

        It's easy to shoot something down. But actually add something constructive? Add some positivity? Hell yes. Thank you.
