How Do We Occupy the Gap?

Posted: Updated:

I would like to start a conversation around the following question:

Because our political process and the government it delivers are owned and dominated by the wealthy and the biggest corporations, there is a gap, a disconnect -- of identification, of engagement, of influence, and of trust -- between the people and politics and between the people and government.

In this election year, how can the Occupy/99% movement best occupy that gap?

The answer to that question is important for the Occupy/99% movement, the electoral process, and ultimately for the country.

I invite your comments. Join the conversation...
