Who Doesn’t Love Free Music?

One of my favorite things about the Occupy Movement so far has been seeing individual and group creativity seemingly rise to levels I never thought I would see. Between photos, videos, music, protest signs, and everything in between I get to somehow experience new types of art every single day. Wisconsin has been occupying the Madison Capitol since before occupations ... Read More »

Meditation and New Ways to Combat PTSD

When a person endures a psychological trauma such as kidnapping, a traumatic “act of God,” a violent act or has to commit a violent act, is raped, tortured, or has to go to war a kind of hyper awareness emerges.

Mitch Green’s open letter appeared New Economic Perspectives on November 21st of last year. We believe it to be as true now as it was then. There are elements of Occupy that seem to be slowing down but the sluggish winter weather is only a test of fortitude. On the other end it produces hardened warrior activists that will prosper through ... Read More »

Be Careful How You Invest Your Loyalty

  Almost a decade ago the Chicago Tribune published an article in their newspaper written by Mary Schmich. Her views on corporations ring true even more so today because it shows these issues have not been addressed by our elected officials. Ten years ago, before corporations were people, we had Enron, Tyco, and WorldCom. We now have Bank of America, ... Read More »

BY: Seul Jones Doi Moi, the “New Way,” was first discussed in 1985 as Vietnam plunged head long into an economic down spin. Ten years after central planning was introduced into the more prosperous and traditionally more independent southern farmers, the per capita national output had plunged 10% leaving many without food while inflation soared to 140%.  A fundamental change ...
