Summary "The Occupy Wall Street Movement named the core issue of our time: the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations--something the political establishment and most media have long ignored. Over the past few decades, wealth and power have been redistributed from the 99% to the 1%. But the movement goes far beyond this critique; it is changing everything--the way people view themselves and the world, the kind of society they believe is possible, and their involvement in creating a society that works for the 99% rather than just the 1%. Attempts to pigeonhole this radically decentralized, fast-evolving movement have led to confusion and misperception. In this volume, the editors of YES! Magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to convey the issues, possibilities, and personalities associated with the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Featuring contributions from such perceptive observers as Naomi Klein, David Korten, Rebecca Solnit, and Ralph Nader, as well as Occupy activists who were there from the beginning, This Changes Everything offers insights for the many already involved--actively protesting or expressing support in other ways--and for the millions more who sympathize with the goal of a more equitable and democratic future. Since their founding in 1996, YES! Magazine and have been showing how powerful ideas fused with practical actions can drive profound change toward a more just, sustainable, and compassionate world. Project Censored calls YES! 'the standard for solutions journalism.' Democracy Now's Amy Goodman calls YES! a 'vital voice of independent journalism.' The Utne Independent Press Awards have repeatedly recognized YES! Magazine, and named the best green business and politics website of 2011"--Provided by publisher.
