6. For me, Occupy's reclamation of the "village square" as a commons for the people to CONNECT

was/is an extremely important aspect of the movement.

T.P.T.B. benefit from the many trends that have tended to isolate us from one another -- excessively long work weeks, ubiquitous tv screens trumpeting Fox, the privatization of real and virtual public spaces, etc. -- and make it easier for them to convince us that their propaganda is prevailing.

When we get together physically, we learn otherwise, and can start working together.
