Occupy Wall Street as a Pivoting Startup: "Generation Why Not" in a "Yeah But" World

Commented Nov 16, 2011 at 01:04:47 in Politics

“insightful and in-citing - interesting twist in jonathan askin huffpo article - funny, how we cheer on the people who are the repressed/oppressed/depressed in other countries when they stand up and are fighting for their future, for the freedoms we cherish and think we have in amerika the beautiful - but when it comes to our own backyard the predictable top down management, powers that be, do the same, use fear and violence and disinformation as the powers that be who run police states - its interesting how we use our freedom of speech to repress the freedom of speech of those we don't agree and then create laws, rules and regulation to justify our positions - democracy has become an idiotcracy, gangocracy where we the people, the consumer, citizen, patient, are the enemy!

when the powers that be resort to violence they have already lost the war - they might have won the battle but they lost the hearts and minds of the people, its only a matter of time... the occupy movement and the movements around the world know they can't lose because they are fighting for their lives and the powers that be represents a failed system of top down system of management built on distrust and cronyism, the apparatchik sunk the US of R and cronyism is sinking the US of A where big biz is king, government is queen and media and religion are the mistress - food for thought”

Back to School Doesn't Have to Mean Back to Tests

Commented Sep 4, 2011 at 17:02:24 in Education

“part 2 continued - the military motto "Ours is to do and die and not to question why" my problme is i question why we have so many cultural problems in our society - why do we have the largest per-capita of our citizens in prison, or 65,000,000 americans are effected by the criminal justice system - and why is it that we lose so many good minds and thinkers who stop dreaming because of testing and because they don't feel they are good enough to be good enough and fall through the cracks - and so when i hear of testing, like in Pavlov's dog, i am again brought back to the trauma, still haunted by the shackles of tests- but the question i ask myself in you, is what does all this say about our society and education system that has failed so many young imaginative minds and locked them into poverty and a life unfulfilled and scream to be set free and what will people of the future say about us too - food for imagination”

Back to School Doesn't Have to Mean Back to Tests

“hmmm - ouch!! first i happen to be an inventor of a textile process some said would revolutionize the textile industry - even though i tested 5% mechanical ability on a 2 day private aptitude test i took in my teens - i like to think of what some call learning dis-abilities as learning gifts they challenged me to pay attention and taught me how to think for myself and sometimes to think out of the box too - actually i try and see the obvious that nobody else sees is my trade secret and also to me that is what invention is too - as you can see even in my writing - i rarely use conventional structure mainly because my mind fights tests and i can't memorize things still, but on other hand i can't forget things i have learned intuitively and intimately that have become me and i have become it and together they have made me, me too - i believe a genius is simply someone who is interested in something and becomes a vacuum cleaner - and in full disclosure i suffer from an incurable dis-ease called curiosityitis that i had to fight to recover and still recovering from too :-) - to me memorization is not learning its a false construct that has its puritanical and military assembly line education function that determines good test takers from not so good test takers - part 1”

A Genuine Memorial Day

A Genuine Memorial Day

Commented May 25, 2009 at 14:07:18 in Politics

“Memorial Day thought: we/media/gov glorify & mythologize war & yet we keep repeating the same wars, fears propaganda since before forever & maybe we, individuals, need to think for ourselves like the butterfly flapping its wings can change course of storm or even create a storm. we need stop playing follow the leader it's said that trade of kings/leaders is war & maybe it's time we stopped pretending we are zombies & going along to get along even though we know its wrong & maybe some day when leaders of world decide its time for another war nobody will show up. we need to change the model from a top down management by fear based society, a society built on fear/distrust that serves its masters to society built on trust that serves we the people. Humpty Dumpty got too fat & had his great fall off the great wall street wall & now we have a chance to re-invent society. isn't it about time we rethink & re-invent ourselves for things are not what they appear to be. we live in an IdiotCracy where big biz is king, gov is queen & media & religion is mistress. we need to stop believing in our own propaganda, as a doc filmmaker i find myself thinking/working on 2 docs in progress called Other Side of War -war seen through the eyes of children & Who's Wearing the Emperor's New Clothes -if so many people believe in something how can it be wrong.”
Paul Volcker: Economic Crisis May Be Worse Than Great Depression

Paul Volcker: Economic Crisis May Be Worse Than Great Depression

Commented Feb 21, 2009 at 16:04:37 in Business

“this is not a crisis as much as a self-destruct button has been pushed and the so called great depression was mild compared to the global systemic meltdown of systemic top down management by fear that we have been repeating since before forever - we have been going along to get along and well we have finally come to the end of the line the game is broken the system never really worked its just that everybody went along even though they knew it was wrong - this is an opportunity to re-invent ourselves stop throwing good money after bad and do something different - and where that change will come from is from each individual flapping their wings like the butterfly and not only changing the direction of the storm but creating a storm locally - we have to stop pretending we are zombies and take back our future - and that will only happen in you in me in each one of us looking at what we can do that can make a difference and stop playing follow the leader - the idiotcracy of if so many people believe in something how can it be wrong has gone on for way too long - the power of one is more then the power of none - more food for thought on the above at http://DiarRHETORICS.com geogeller”

“I agree. If the common American and conscious citizens of the world refuse to buy into the fear and panic, we have an opportunity to 1) prosecute the wrongs that have gotten us in this position, and 2) reinvent our society so that the ReThuglican corporate apparatus no longer rules the world.”

“good report and reporting given the state of global meltdown i would have like to have seen some more insightful and inciting questions and commentary - if you and your family where in the line of fire you wouldn't ask these questions, would you - what questions would you ask is my question - davos the meeting of the emperors its all too civil given that these are the guys responsible for the meltdown - coming together to do what - asking not even for understanding or forgiveness but international cooperation to help themselves out and nobody there to yell look the emperor is wearing no clothes - here's a twitt i sent out recently #Davos Who's Wearing Emperor's New Clothes? sale on emperors new meltdown/markdown closes inquire within #WEF #Davos09 food for thought - ask questions as if your life depends on it - surprise yourself”
