    Experiment.

    If the authorities think they can shut down Occupy with a few nasty campsite raids, they have misjudged. They are already being out-flanked and out-thunk. They are a long way from defeat, obviously. The class war is not one or two battles. But they've lost control of the narrative in a very short time. Whether they can seize it back is up to us to prevent.

      seems to be universal, but the only place that actually matters as a venue for an opinion is at a GA.  That's where the action is, and all of those who have "concerns" about the "direction" and "purpose" of OWS are completely free to join in at a GA and share those opinions.

      There are those who are actually doing something, there in the streets, something they have decided in their way to do, and then there are all the rest of the folks, ensconced at their keyboards, who have endless  advice.

      Folks get to choose: they  can be part of the creation of new realities, by participating in their local General Assembly, or they can bloviate to their heart's content about what other people are doing and what they think about it.

      That's the thing about "participatory" democracy; you have to participate if you want it to go the way you want.  Bloggers are merely the audience and talk is cheap.

      don't always believe what you think
