Comments on: Occupy: What Now? http://occupiedstories.com/occupy-what-now.html Read & contribute first-person stories from movements around the world Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:09:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.3.15 By: Pelican Lee http://occupiedstories.com/occupy-what-now.html#comment-1823 Fri, 20 Jan 2012 21:35:52 +0000 http://occupiedstories.com/?p=958#comment-1823 I so much agree with what is said here. I myself at times have not been as kind as I wish I could have been, to others in the movement when I disagreed or was upset by their actions. We have all been damaged by the system we live under. We must be doing our personal work along with the movement work. And we have to remember to give each other some slack. I think we all wish for perfection from ourselves and each other, and when we don’t get it, are profoundly disappointed.

I hope those who have disappeared because they got slammed by a few, will remember that many of us are doing our best to be kind to each other. Please don’t give up forever. But yes, take some time to take care of yourself.

I do feel that The Occupy Movement can search and put forth at lease 1, possibly more citizen candidates who are felt to be honorable and have philosophy that we espouse to be elected in place of the candidates of the 2 major political parties. Playing by their rules is accepting their rules. We do not have to!

There is absolutely no reason to participate in this totally corrupt system when we can use social networks and the Internet to inform, support and ELECT “write in” candidates as our choice for ALL offices coming up for election.
We must enforce the “Write In” option and use it instead of the 2 party system that is so corrupt. This is a possible way to make the moneyed interests irrelevant. We don’t believe their advertisements; we do have faith in the actual words of common people across this land. Especially if they are promoted by the Occupy Movement.
Lets use our freedom of speech while we still have it.
