    Engaged Economy
    Project: Polytopia
    Sparked by a good month of #Occupy movement, people are engaged against, networking against.

    Much of what people are against happens behind closed doors. Fine for private matters, but there are no private politics. There should not be. The people occupy - against. They do gain attention.

    The occupy movement has been criticized for:

    • not having an agenda - it has many

    • not having a leader - it has many

    but - that gives it diversity and resilience.

    Such energy may fizzle, and to keep momentum, people appear to aim their networking for:

    • replacing winner-takes-it-all financial casinos with a more sustainable social contract

    • bringing crony capitalists to justice, to stop their shredding of the social fabric woven from agreements and laws

    and the objectives may grow more diverse, as people gain freedom to pursue their own dreams, refine agreements in conversation and debate, and form their own groups forwarding their own causes and ideals, at best in mutual respect.

    Patterns will emerge, become signs of progress, and new social contracts may be drawn up.


    Direct democracy. Engaged Economy.
