Response to daaron (Reply #64)

73. I attend a GA here in L.A. on (at least) a weekly basis.

In the beginning the GAs were hard because people didn't get how to leave their egos at home & participate fairly.

Now, they run MUCH more smoothly. We ran our M1GS meetings in the same fashion & things worked swimmingly. I am a believer in the horizontal method of decision making...especially in groups with different types of people.

I'm sorry you didnít get your proposals passed. Did they hard block them? What was the method after a hard block? If there was no consensus, did the person(s) proposing revise & come back or did they go home all pissed off?

It sounds to me like you want a reason to bitch about Occupy. Since your experience is at ONE Occupy, you shouldn't shit on all of us. I have attended GAs at 5 different Occupys & all of them run well. Also your line "unworkable for any issue more complex than where to march, next, and what to yell" show you don't really have any experience in how this is supposed to work. It also shows you attitude toward Occupy in general.

BTW, I like you pointing out my mistyping...shows class and a real desire to engage in honest debate. And thank you for your concern.
