Occupy Rio+20: OPEN SOURCE EVERYTHING

Occupy Rio+20: OPEN SOURCE EVERYTHING | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

What does Open Source Everything mean to the UN?: Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration on Sustainable Development (RDSD) empowers The 99% with deep participation in the United Nations:

 

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES ARE BEST HANDLED WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS, AT THE RELEVANT LEVEL... EACH INDIVIDUAL SHALL HAVE APPROPRIATE ACCESS TO INFORMATION CONCERNING THE ENVIRONMENT THAT IS HELD BY PUBLIC AUTHORITIES...

 

Since the last Earth Summit, humanity has mastered the open communications systems, information technology and software to enable global collaboration, participation and innovation. As Marshall McLuhan predicted, today's living generations are birthing one of the greatest social transformations in history — the shift from the Industrial Age to the Age of Shared Wisdom and Innovation. The Internet and associated technologies form an evolutionary system for the human race, encompassing the tools and diverse traditions to harness a holistic and resilient approach to build future civilization.

Occupy Economy: The case for soft money

Occupy Economy: The case for soft money | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

Money is a tool to facilitate exchange.

 

Money follows, like everything else here on this physical plane, the principles of yin and yang. There is "hard" (yang) money and there is "soft" (yin) money. At this time, the world is dominated by yang money. My purpose with this article is to convince you that we need to find a better balance in matters of exchange and economics.

Occupy My Soul | The Next Edge

Occupy My Soul | The Next Edge | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"On the surface occupy is a political movement. In actual fact it is much more… It represents the crystallization in our psyche of both a deep sense of injustice (the political aspect that is getting the headlines) as well as a deep sense of loss of meaning… in ‘ordinary’ life. Things have gone so far wrong that we don’t know what to say or do. When given the chance to register our dissatisfaction we did so without reservation and with relentless commitment and fervor. We were willing to push boundaries of all sorts."

How To Break Up a Peaceful Protest Peacefully - Forbes

How To Break Up a Peaceful Protest Peacefully - Forbes | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"This is a more humane, less costly, and ultimately more productive way to handle a protest. Of course, evictions are entirely wrong-headed to begin with. Let fatigue and the cold bring down OWS if it is to be brought down. Even a relatively non-confrontational eviction can create newfound energy for a movement like OWS."

Occupying the Future, Starting at the Roots

Occupying the Future, Starting at the Roots | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

In an email sent out in early May, Adbusters urges recipients to “occupy the future;” that is, “to describe, build and sustain the post-capitalist future we want to live in.”

 

Dayaneni concurs with that sentiment. “People ask me what they can do to support. I say, take more land. Occupy a library, a clinic, whatever, plan it right and [re-launch] it appropriately and at scale. We need to prove that we have the ability to self govern. This is the new moment of occupy, not tit for tat, not cat-and-mouse games with cops, but full-scale intervention. Occupy the Farm is one of the first to-scale interventions.”

Occupy Big Business: The Sharing Economy's Quiet Revolution

Occupy Big Business: The Sharing Economy's Quiet Revolution | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"This new shared market economy is being driven by a quiet revolution: the millions of Americans who no longer want to prop up our faltering economy with endless and thoughtless consumption.

 

They recognize that hyper-consumption is no longer an option, both because it's not sustainable and because they have less money to spend. Instead, Americans are starting to spend their limited income in a responsible, thoughtful, and connected way. They want to feel good about where their money is going."

Shareable: Time to Occupy the Calendar

Shareable: Time to Occupy the Calendar | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"If something entirely new is needed, then it follows that a new calendar is needed. To observe old holidays or observe them in debased ways supports that which oppresses and drains energy needed for change. And if occupying physical space and redefining social relations on a peer basis has had such a profound impact, imagine the power of occupying time."

All in the Family: How family dynamics play out in the OWS movement

All in the Family:  How family dynamics play out in the OWS movement | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

The current debate about the Occupy Wall Street movement and its foibles--its vague demands, "communist" leanings or "rag tag" participants--reminds me eerily of family dynamics that I have seen play out in my child psychiatry practice.
