If The Kids Are United…

My first #Occupy post. I have been quite restrained over this, haven’t I? AND this post surprisingly is not a rant, but instead looking to build on an interesting pitch…

I like where this guy is coming from, but it needs to be worked into becoming a sustainable application which would actually stack in the world which we all do/will live. For example, you & I may be co-dependent, based on a mutual friendship, but what of the person who made the screen you are reading this message on… & what of their co-dependence on you? This type of co-dependence on each other is based on consumption, not friendship… and unless all consumption is removed from the system globally, what this guy is proposing will break down as soon as any of us need a new “thing” which required the effort of a human that we have no relationship with to create this product. Please don’t get me wrong… for OWS to base their objective on emotional co-dependence I think is a really nice starting point (probably the best I’ve heard yet). It unites instead of alienates people while contributing the concept (& action) of an amazing foundation for a new system to be created on. But what I’d like to work on is developing a sustainable consumption model which factors in equality, in a global community, and is built around what this clip is about, & that’s the real challenge. Hmmmm.
