This is a something I came across, it may be of interest as the speaker sees the world in a different way. There are 3 videos the first is a bit long but one should probably view them in order starting with #1

I gave it a shot and made it about 2:30-3:00 into the first video and got bored.

Anyone care to summarize them? Most YouTube videos are not as good as people think they are, as swebb pointed out. There is too much good content available that I don't see the need to waste time on these without a summary.

Here is my take/summary and I did listen to all 3 (over a period of time). While speaker seems to sympathize in general with OWS movement and sees it as important not so much in and of itself but as a needed or perhaps expected reaction to the wealth disparity issues, he has taken this to a deeper level, an individual level. My sense is he sees the world at large as nearly hopelessly difficult to change but there is another world we can change which is the individual world we all have but don't "occupy" he begins to give some examples of this particularly toward the end of the first video and continues and expands on the ideas in the second and third. I found the ideas very interesting. The first vid is too long, he may have realized that as that as the next two are about half as long.
