Stiffed: Occupy

Stiffed: Occupy | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
It is harder to organise a political movement to help young people than old people. Young people are less susceptible to being organised and they lack the patience for the hard graft of a long political campaign. They are more likely to be seduced by the weak ties of social networking and the false promise of slogans like ‘We are the 99 per cent.’ Nonetheless, these are the victims who need the most help and who lack the clout or visibility to be heard among the more pressing demands being made by the more militant elderly. They are the 5 per cent and we should do something for them.

 

London Review of Books has an excellent critical analysis by David Runciman of the Occupy movement and the 99% versus 1% narrative.

Declare Your Radicalness

Declare Your Radicalness | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it

Great post again in the Harvard Business Review blog, written by Umair Haque, on the need for radicalism instead of the pragmatic incrementalism of our crisis management.

 

"Sure, radicalism's dangerous. But what's even more is dangerous is not enough radicalism in a time of mega-failure."

Global Noise takes on austerity: 'We are not going to be silent'

Global Noise takes on austerity: 'We are not going to be silent' | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
Demonstrators across the world are calling for an end to austerity as Global Noise protests kick off in more than 30 countries, including many in the Nobel Peace laureate European Union.

 

Is Global Noise the new "Occupy"? Opposition against globalised new class warfare will need more than just a narrative. It will need organisation.
