NEW AWARENESS: On Occupy Movement and Internet-Activism

The economic globalization is increasingly being determined by the private economic sector, which has a dogma of deregulation and “liberalization” of the markets as a result. In view of the disastrous social and ecological consequences, this development needs a vigorous counter-control. Who or what is responsible for the economic plight of our time? Wrong! Who or what is able to change the system – as we know it –, turn it upside down and revolutionize it? A suitable medium for it is the internet with all its boundless possibilities to pass on data and information beyond the state adjusted and censored canals. Internet-activism, guerrilla-networking or social media-exchange are tools, of which activists and internet-guerrilla-bloggers make use. Daily. Twenty-four-seven. Like a clockwork that doesn’t stop working. Every millisecond, millions of data and information are being sent around the globe, scrambled and changed. Who are those who produce and distribute this information? Is there a worldwide operating data transfer monopoly, or are we all involved in this exchange of information? Has history made its mark so deeply that we can’t tilt our social pyramid system anymore? Wrong! We are all the history. And we all write it.

Let’s consider the internet a digital zone. This zone needs no moral or ethical control. Or maybe it does? If there is a common denominator in the internet, then it is probably the satisfaction of our curiosity. Curiosity drives people into satisfying their permanent avarice, satisfying their thirst for information and constant constraint to have their fingers on the pulse of the time. According to which criteria is this information being activated? Do taste and individual style determine the choice criteria, or are we spammed with advertisement and propaganda? Is spiritual redemption still possible in a society which is driven by economic growth and profit maximization? Is profit avarice innate? We need our material comfort. We don’t want to relinquish our cars because it shortens traveling. At the same time, we destroy our earth by toxic exhaust gases and wage wars because of oil deposits. We do not want to relinquish our airplanes because it pulls together time and space. At the same time, we destroy our ozone layer and the tides. We don’t want to relinquish our television because it relieves our loneliness. At the same time, we poison our mind with garbage of information and advertisement. We don’t want to relinquish our money because it makes everything possible. At the same time, we are slaves of these bank bills in a fake society which promises truth and sells goods. The social pyramid gets in swaying because politicians and bankers are driven by profit avarice, selfishness, exploitation and slavery. The vices of the modern human beings are the vices of the time. Luminous screens and cold shop-windows decorate our everyday life. They promise soul welfare and satisfaction, but at the same time disperse us and compel us back into isolation.

Nevertheless, is an order of things possible beyond today’s value systems. With all the Occupy Movements worldwide and the millions fury citizens who demonstrate on the streets of the world, this new order of things, this new awareness is about to assume human shape.

It is a matter of raising visionary ideas and positive energies, so that we can ride along this carousel of information. With the aid of Internet-Activism and Occupy Demonstrations we release energies that create an autonomous space beyond the big errors of the 20th century (ideologies, dogmas, dictatorships, isms etc.).

It is a matter of bringing up the courage which is being flogged to death by many opinion leaders and power representatives.

It is a matter of bringing up the solidarity which can weld together all the Occupy Movements worldwide and lead us to a consciousness of cosmogonic love and confidence.

It is a matter of using Internet-Activism as a new form of communication in order to deconstruct the police-state supervision mechanisms and redefine the concept of “freedom” as we know it.

It is a matter of letting flow ones spiritual energy fields into a life-affirming attitude to life.

It is a matter of organizing demonstrations right in the middle and off the infinite shopping crowds of people, of roaring slogans in the collective ear and of appealing to solidarity in order to cause the change, which guides us out of the economic plight and irritation of our times, directing us to a new awareness.

This consciousness germinates in the Occupy Movement. It germinates in us all because we want to follow our natural instinct and shape not against each other but together our common future. Those who believe in this change are already part of it. Every person can participate actively in the constitution of the new awareness. Every single opinion is required. Every spiritual energy field is required in order to breathe and think beyond the speculative and exploitative. People are stronger than borders. Unlimited love throughout the world can preserve our democratic fundamental rights and guarantee the vital peace on earth. Tree planting and book printing instead of weapon production! Politicians must be re-educated to gardeners who cherish our MOTHER EARTH as a flourishing garden. We may not conduct trade with our feelings and emotional intelligence, but share these feelings with each other. The infinite collective consciousness of the people is a living organism. It needs love and positive energy in order to prosper.
