I have been Occupying since 10/10/11 in Oakland because I have been waiting at least 10 yrs. consciously and since I was a teen unconsciously. I hate injustice! I want a more just society and world...I want egalitarian societies and it is my responsibility to do what I can to help create this reality wherever I am. I love community and I love knowing my fellow neighbors locally and around the world are just as worthy of love as I am. I embrace Occupy with all my heart and those who want TRUE justice to prevail! PEACE is HOW WE LIVE...not some abstract or silly idealistic word...simplicity and living consciously is how peace is achieved. I am committed to doing my part!
I went to the bank one day and a man chased me away from the building for no reason other than my town was on fire and I stopped to take a picture and use the atm. I'll never forget his words. "Who do you think you are?" Well I stood there a second thinking about what he said and why he would think that he could say anything like that to me. Then proceeded to my vehicle where he chased after me and held my door from me being able to close it. I said let me go there is an emergency! And he grunted at me, fixed his tie, and proceeded to back away from my vehicle.
I'm mixed and a life long resident of an all white community. All my life people have been asking me just who did I think I was. Whites blacks browns etc etc. Just who do you think you are?
Fuck you prick... I'm the 99%... and I'm taking back my country!
I am Occupying and here because I fight for my right to decide what laws will rule my live. As long as we choose others to do this job for us it will never change to what it should be: a truly free society with rules made by everyone in consensus.This is my prime reason. In my view this is the only way to be really free and still have an orderly society with rules/guidelines.
I am here because I need to find people that will join me setting up new communities where we practice what we preach in full view of the rest of the world.
I am here because I am finished working for a society that does not work for me. (even though im not poor or wanting anything)I am here because my wealth comes through the misery of others.
I am here because the ones that should represent me only represent their own agenda's even though they promised the world to the voters.
I am here because we are being divided and conquered. "He is evil!!! Get him!"
I am here because they told me not to. I am here because I still can.
I am here because I love my world and all the humans and creatures on it. Because the world is me and I am the world. So are you. In the bible it says: god is everything. And I tend to believe this even though I am an atheist. And if god is everything, god is also you and me and the world we live on.
I am here because we think it is more important to make money then to be what we are suposed to be: creators and shepards of this world. That is the image god intended for us to mimic. It is in our souls to create and to care for our world. I know this because of the feelings you get from finishing a project or just hugging someone you like.
I am here and I see I am not alone.
I am here because this is where my awakening has lead me. It's not easy, realising that the way you have viewed the world for so many years is a total lie. Roughly 4 years have passed since I began to dig beneath the surface and explore things that I had been mislead about my entire life.
I can no longer look at myself in the mirror and call myself a father to my daughter without standing up for what is right. This is not a world that I would be comfortable to hand down to the future generations of my family. If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.
A much better man than me once said "be the change you want to see in the world". So that is what I plan to do.
I am here to hopefully help myself and others understand that we must live in harmony within the energies of the universes natural order and evolutionary processes.Also, that.. the evolution is hampered with constant negativity from the PTB who doesn't want humans to realise their full potential together..But rather deviantly kept divided and steered away from our true path of the natural to the unnatural of control with deminishing prosperity for the human race with a race not capable of evolving any further.
Also to realise that the natural order is the flow we need to take and not to catergorise into systems of which will be time-destructive to our civilisation like our present system.We need to acknowledge where we went wrong in our past and learn from it and set future rules by it.To understand there are more genetically advanced humans around with the knowledge but not the power of control, who can take us together to a new level.. together.
We must live within this energy and follow its path ..or become extinct trying to control it...Txs and tc all x
Mike, where do you see it growing? I would like to be like you, and beleive that a better world is possible. But, i think that Humanity will never change. I am of the generation of 60'. In fact i was 6 years old on 1960. But here, in Europa, in 1968, i really beleive somethink is going on... Look... nothing really change.
I am here because i must be here.
