Re: What If Burningman Is Just The Beginning?...

It is. It is a community of want, of desire, not of need. Each individual spins in its own orbit, merging with and emerging from others on the basis of individual desires, not the coercion of the state or the necessity of unmet need.

Re: OCCUPYWALLSTREET REINFORCEMENTS!

Mission Statement: Occupy Las Vegas The first questions that come out of anyone's mouth whenever a new political movement arises are, “Who are they?” and “What do they want?” They are good questions that should be answered.
