Stars Say Great Time to Occupy Yourself

Great Time to Occupy Yourself
This call to Occupy Yourself comes with an auspicious Jupiter-Pluto trine in earth signs. Not sure who created the video about Occupy Yourself, but I like its message of stepping back from the "system," and into yourself. Most of us can agree that culture and society as we know it is overwhelming, and in some cases, destructive to mind, body and spirit. This is about staking your claim to time with yourself, and finding reserves of wisdom and strength there.

How to frame yourself: A framing memo for Occupy Wall Street

George Lakoff, professor of linguistics

I was asked weeks ago by some in the Occupy Wall Street movement to make suggestions for how to frame the movement. I have hesitated so far, because I think the movement should be framing itself. It’s a general principle: Unless you frame yourself, others will frame you — the media, your enemies, your competitors, your well-meaning friends. I have so far hesitated to offer suggestions. But the movement appears to maturing and entering a critical time when small framing errors could have large negative consequences. So I thought it might be helpful to accept the invitation and start a discussion of how the movement might think about framing itself.

About framing: It’s normal. Everybody engages in it all the time. Frames are just structures of thought that we use every day. All words in all languages are defined in terms of frame-circuits in the brain. But, ultimately, framing is about ideas, about how we see the world, which determines how we act.

In politics, frames are part of competing moral systems that are used in political discourse and in charting political action. In short, framing is a moral enterprise: it says what the character of a movement is. All politics is moral. Political figures and movements always make policy recommendations claiming they are the right things to do. No political figure ever says, do what I say because it’s wrong! Or because it doesn’t matter! Some moral principles or other lie behind every political policy agenda.

Two moral framing systems in politics

Conservatives have figured out their moral basis and you see it on Wall Street: It includes: The primacy of self-interest. Individual responsibility, but not social responsibility. Hierarchical authority based on wealth or other forms of power. A moral hierarchy of who is “deserving,” defined by success. And the highest principle is the primacy of this moral system itself, which goes beyond Wall Street and the economy to other arenas: family life, social life, religion, foreign policy, and especially government. Conservative “democracy” is seen as a system of governance and elections that fits this model.

Though OWS concerns go well beyond financial issues, your target is right: the application of these principles in Wall Street is central, since that is where the money comes from for elections, for media, and for right-wing policy-making institutions of all sorts on all issues. ...

Exposed: Media fabricated 'empty tents' story at "Occupy LXS"

Following all the media hype (Telegraph, The Times, Daily Mail, Daily Express) about 'empty tents' at OccupyLSX we decided to check out whether their thermal imaging evidence was true.
We got hold of *exactly* the same thermal imaging camera and showed that - surprise, surprise - you can't tell when people are in their tents.

Why I Support the Occupy Museums Protesters, and Why You Should Too

Mission Control

On the screen, a protester from Occupy Orlando was requesting in-kind donations. “We have plenty of deodorant,” he said, “but we could use soap.” A second protester, wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, entered the frame to announce breaking news: “We’re global! Seventeen hundred viewers right now!” The crowd outside the Orlando chamber of commerce cheered.
The video feed had been picked up by, the switchboard for live coverage of the populist protests that began with Occupy Wall Street. The channel, hosted by, attracts between a thousand and twenty thousand viewers at any moment. “The revolution will not be televised,” the masked protester told the crowd. “It’ll be . . . on the Internet.”

Last Tuesday night, a pensive young man in a T-shirt that read “I AM A REVOLTING CITIZEN” was at the controls, monitoring feeds from around the country. After Orlando, he cut to a video, from earlier in the week, of Naomi Klein, the critic of corporate globalization, addressing a rally in San Francisco: “Occupation is not a place—it is a state of mind.” ...

Enacting the Impossible (On Consensus Decision Making)

The direct democratic process adopted by Occupy Wall Street has deep roots in American radical history. It was widely employed in the civil rights movement and by the Students for a Democratic Society. But its current form has developed from within movements like feminism and even spiritual traditions (both Quaker and Native American) as much as from within anarchism itself. The reason direct, consensus-based democracy has been so firmly embraced by and identified with anarchism is because it embodies what is perhaps anarchism’s most fundamental principle: that in the same way human beings treated like children will tend to act like children, the way to encourage human beings to act like mature and responsible adults is to treat them as if they already are.

How Will The Global Revolution End?

A global ‘revolution’ is on and is spreading. What started as an attempt to occupy Wall Street offices, the headquarters of American capitalism, by a few hundred people a few months ago has spread throughout America and now gone global. According to The Economist the movement had two weeks ago had mushroomed in over 900 cities in around 80 countries.

Message of the Week: Occupy movement is doing the church's job

The Bible’s consistent message is that God cares deeply for everyone, including the poor and powerless. And when the poor and powerless are mistreated, God gets quite irate. Speaking for God, the prophet Amos denounces those “who oppress the poor, who crush the needy” (Amos 4:1). He lambasts those who “trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land ... buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals” (Amos 6:4, 6).

Spanish Indignados a Force in Global Movement

On Oct. 15, these indignant Spaniards spurred a coordinated global protest that spanned 90 countries and 1,000 cities. In Spain, several hundred thousand people participated, supporting the view that the Indignados have become an inspiration and coordinating force for actions beyond Spain's borders.
Spanish public broadcaster RTVE estimated that between 6.5 million and 8 million Spaniards have participated in protests during 2011, and according to polls, 80 percent of the Spaniards support the Indignados' cause, EU Observer reported.

Revelations on revolution

As we come up to the 200th anniversary of the peak of luddite activity in our area we can hopefully look forward to more accurate and better-informed appraisals than that afforded by Mr Appleyard in last week’s edition.
Finally, whilst there was extreme suffering amongst the population for a variety of reasons, the Croppers were the elite of the Artisan class, with many more concerned with preserving their own status than with bettering conditions for everyone. The year of 1812 was a fascinating one but let us please not settle for myth and biased sentimental ‘socialist’ twaddle.


If you thought this was awesome, wait till you hear the rest!!!
Hello Juggerthugs! This is the intro of our upcoming song "BURN A BANK A DAY" to express our solidarity with world citizens against the global financial mafia and modern day exploitation!

Dai Li's Manuscript Published

"History does not depend on memories and legends, but real material," said Lu Fangshang, Taiwan's National History curator. Taiwan's military intelligence, working in conjunction with the Academia Historica, published Dai Li's Historical Materials, which is based on a manuscript written by Dai Li, the founder of the Bureau of Investigation and Statistics of the Military Council of the KMT government.
[ ... ]
Wu believes that Taiwan's Military Intelligence Bureau hopes to make known its intelligence history during the upcoming100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution. Wu said they have no intention of speaking on Dai Li's behalf.
But as a military intelligence bureau, which Dai Li created in 1938, it has been incredibly invaluable in securing military intelligence data behind enemy lines, Sino-U.S. intelligence cooperation, and details on how the war was won.
