"Firstly, I am against any type of party, they only serve to devide the people which is the old adversarial way of conducting business.

"I heard all of this rhetoric when Obama was running for office. He would empower the people, he was a maverick to the existing parties, he would create a dramatic change. You're right when you say that the aim of every party is to gain power…"
Making a new world is not easy. In my opinion we need to start small and work our way up. So I want to make new small communities along side our current society that promote our believes in how the world should be run.If you want to help out planning these new communities please join this group and join discusions.

Was the Arab spring a "Twitter and Facebook" revolution? How does the Occupy movement use social media? Is it a social media movement or something different?
Therefore we are conducting the OccupyMedia! Survey. We invite some users of Occupii to participate in it, and would be extremely happy if you could take 15 minutes time in order to help us find out what role social media play in contemporary protests:
