John Heilemann, writing in the December 5 issue of NEW YORK magazine, offers an excellent account of the differences among the leaders of the ‘leaderless’ movement called Occupy Wall Street, or OWS, which occupied Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park for several weeks before being forcefully removed by the New York City Police Department. Heilemann observes that the core group was split between the reformists who were aiming to improve the present system and the radicals who were out to remove it. Now that winter approaches and the movement is likely to desert the streets, the question arises as to which of those views will be ascendent when the movement stirs from its winter hibernation and begins to take to the streets again come spring. Rather than hibernate, this would be the appropriate time to begin laying the foundation for an entirely new economic system. One way to do that is to participate in this website’s Whole Earth Design Project. During the first stage of the project, we are searching for the individuals and organizations who are most knowledgeable regarding what we call life’s ten essentials: air, water, food, clothing, shelter, communication, information, transportation, health care, and energy.
