    Turkey and Brazil are the beginning of a second wave of global protest against inequality – economic, political, social, cultural.  The first wave started with the Arab Spring and the Indignados and ended with Occupy Wall Street.  The second wave will rise and crest within a year and will, of necessity, be different in each country.  I suspect that the recent surveillance state revelations in the US and around the world will figure strongly in this second wave movement.

    One gaping hole I see is that people are not using the same organizing techniques that fill the streets to construct an alternative, and better, economy.  Make the politicians and the 1% irrelevant.  It may sound impossible but, as the situationists wrote, “Be realistic, demand the impossible.”
