Stack:

Informational blather:

Naz - finds it confusing because the goals are so different within the community – how can we get one statement?

Tony - we must go to the GA with an open mind but lead them to work together – not ask.

Tony - academics are so corporatized  -  best to find someone who is outside the system, not attached – no one can be an individual

Jordan - community art is the same all art must be in the system already

Lisa - national gallery – trustees who decide what art America see because they have money

Tony - Disciplined Minds – a book to read

Lisa - everything in the world is polluted by rich dudes making money – everything

 

Djorje - everything points to profit – as V&G we can have this conversation within OWS

Tony - it’s easy to get rid of that – all companies can be worker-owned

Tony - governments are in place for control.  U.S. does it by food supply – the energy source.

Cynthia – they took control of Jamaica through the food – rice.

Tony - don’t patent life – this changed under Reagan

Tony - the system controls everything – manipulate to think they are helping you – they say unemployment is a handout – not true – you and employer pay for it – it is your money

Cynthia - self-sufficiency is the enemy of the system

Tony - at Zuccotti the bikes were a threat – then we were evicted 1 week after the bikes got there

TV, media, gaming are distractions from the corrupt system.

We could make an Occupy Video Game – using a community, skill shares – get  points for it.

 

Meeting adjourned at 7:50
