I saw this on one of the "Occupy" tweets on twitter, and I'd love to come up with a sign/graphic for "Leaders leading leaders leading leaders" (like "trolls trolling trolls trolling trolls). Any thoughts?

Occupy succeeds in Iceland (even though no one called it that at the time)

This success is big- big like the public bank success of North Dakota in 1919 big. Dig this:

This really underscores the power of people communicating laterally with each other. The new constitution was not written by "founding fathers" or any enlightenment thinkers at the top.

"In the March 2010 referendum, 93% voted against repayment of the debt. The IMF immediately froze its loan. But the revolution (though not televised in the United States), would not be intimidated. With the support of a furious citizenry, the government launched civil and penal investigations into those responsible for the financial crisis. Interpol put out an international arrest warrant for the ex-president of Kaupthing, Sigurdur Einarsson, as the other bankers implicated in the crash fled the country.

But Icelanders didn't stop there: they decided to draft a new constitution that would free the country from the exaggerated power of international finance and virtual money. (The one in use had been written when Iceland gained its independence from Denmark, in 1918, the only difference with the Danish constitution being that the word ‘president’ replaced the word ‘king’.)

To write the new constitution, the people of Iceland elected twenty-five citizens from among 522 adults not belonging to any political party but recommended by at least thirty citizens. This document was not the work of a handful of politicians, but was written on the internet. The constituent’s meetings are streamed on-line, and citizens can send their comments and suggestions, witnessing the document as it takes shape. The constitution that eventually emerges from this participatory democratic process will be submitted to parliament for approval after the next elections.
