A swarm is created through a blog, forum or something of that sort and can bring together thousands of people with a common goal in mere seconds. In the swarm, people inspire each other and are all equal, the founder of the swarm isn’t the only one with major influence. If a person is going to do something, they can simply post their idea and opinion and say, “Who’s with me?” A swarm looks like a traditional organization from the outside, but is different because of its speed of operation, its low operating costs, and its massive number of passionate volunteers who are ready to work together in hopes of change.
The fourth is freedom from fear
The third is freedom from want
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way
The first is freedom of speech and expression
My Favorite president is Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I originally chose him because he is a president I hear about a lot and I knew had something to do with getting America out of the Great Depression. After reading about him more, I learned about how he created jobs and had a huge role in ending the Great Depression. Jean Edward Smith, FDR’s biographer, writes about his presidency, “which brought the United States through the Great Depression and World War II to a prosperous future” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_D._Roosevelt). Roosevelt sounds like a nice, good president who made a lot of change and optimism.
In California, no vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour. This law seems especially ridiculous because if there is no driver the car should’t be moving at all, but my assumption is that someone jumped out of their car and it was speeding and caused an accident. Someone either got hurt by the accident or mad about it and made this law.
Also in California, women may not drive in a house coat. This law doesn’t really make sense, I can’t really think of a logical reason for it. A guess would be that some woman thought it wasn’t proper so they made it a law.
In Utah, it is against the law to fish from horseback. This law may have been created because someone fell off of their horse, or because the horse was forced too deep in the water, or maybe because when fishing, the wire got caught on the horse and the horse began bucking or something. There are a few reasons this one may have been created.
In New Jersey, it is against the law for a man to knit during fishing season. I think this law was created by someone who thought fishing was vitaly important. Maybe they thought if men didn’t fully focus on fishing there wouldn’t be enough food, so their other, unimportant, “girly” hobbies (such as knitting) weren’t allowed during fishing season.
In New York, the penalty for jumping off a building is death. I’m assuming someone jumped in an attempt to commit suicide, and someone who saw this as violating their beliefs thought that they should be punished and didn’t deserve to live.
In New York, a fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. Either someone was hit on and took offense to it or saw people flirting and was disgusted by it so decided to make it a law.
In New York, while riding an elevator, one must talk to no one, and fold his hands while looking toward the door. I think this one must be similar to the flirting one, some was in an elevator and felt awkward or annoyed when people tried to chat with them so they made this law.
In the Declaration of the Occupation of New York, there is no response to complaints. They explain the rationale for separation, “…so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.” They explain the new government, “…we acknowledge the reality…” They have a long list of complaints, “They have taken our houses…” Then they skip the response to these complaints and go straight to declaring independence, “Join us and make your voices heard!”
We have tried to be patient. We have tried to get them to be fair. We have tried to get our rights back. We have paid for school and taxes. We have tried to find work. We have tried to speak up. We want our freedoms. We want to be listened to. We need to get these back. It is our duty. This can no longer be the way.
