Where should #Occupy go next? Civil Disobedience in the footsteps of Thoreau and Gandhi!
Occupiers should not get engaged in the current regime in the United States, until corporate “personhood” is abolished. Instead, they should strive to foster alternative civil society and economic systems through Civil Disobedience, following the footsteps of Thoreau and Gandhi. Any engagement with the system in its current form would only taint the Occupiers and provide legitimacy to the illegitimate. Work less, enjoy more quality time, starve the beast!

Los Angeles, December 11 – in view of recent reports of discussions among the Occupiers regarding their future direction, Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), offers:
- Occupy your neighborhood, town, and state. Make sure to walk the block, neighborhood daily, know and befriend your neighbors, get to know like-minded People across your town/city/state, some farmers, just in case…
- Occupiers should not get politically engaged with the current regime in the United States, since it refuses to comply with the Constitution of the United States. Any engagement with the system would only taint the Occupiers.
- Occupiers should boycott local, state, or US elections, until a time when corporate “personhood” is abolished. Any participation in such elections provides legitimacy to the illegitimate.
- Occupiers should strive to foster alternative civil society systems, based on local voluntary organizations, and minimize interactions with local, state, and US government in general.
- Occupiers should strive to foster alterative economic systems, based on self-sufficiency, boycotting of large corporate goods and services, engagement in cooperative operations, and exchanges that avoid denomination in US dollars.
- Occupiers should particularly strive to avoid all interactions with law enforcement and the corrupt US and states justice systems.
- Occupiers should particularly strive to avoid the corrupt US banking system in all its forms.
- Occupiers should particularly strive to avoid the local, state, and US tax systems.
Work less, enjoy more quality time, starve the beast!
