Winter is over, time to spring into action. I believe the spring of occupation will provide a sea change in our political discourse. When the movement awakens from a seasonal hibernation, the nation will move. An undeniable mass of people is an undeniable force. It will be awesome to see as well, much more fun than the tired old debates and listening to politicians try to outmaneuver each other.
It will go viral this spring. It has to. There is no choice but for the occupy movement to become a cottage industry. The pols will have to get serious very quickly about engaging the issues that the occupy movement is kicking up.
I hope Obama spends time engaging with the Occupiers. He needs to understand the outcry and speak to it even more. They will lift him on their shoulders if he does this and carry him right back into the white house.
If the movement rears up as I think it will, the whole paradigm will shift on a dime into our time, the future is now.
