The Metasociety

OWS is only one small part of a much larger movement. It is the movement made up of community groups and NGOs, trade associations, special interest groups, community co-ops, environmental groups, rights groups, online activists, artists’ collectives, and more. The metasociety.

OWS is, at its heart, a change in the way we view social change and political action. It’s a recognition that the placement of too much of anything – power, money, influence – into the hands of a few is ultimately damaging to society. It’s an attempt to create enough social friction to make the accumulation of so much wealth and power unbearable to the few who possess it. And its an attempt to understand how we govern ourselves in the coming era after we have rejected the attempts of the rich and powerful to do our governing for us.
