    Occupy Wall Street: What’s Really Going On

    On Friday, October 7th, a beautiful blue-sky and warm-ish October day, I went to Zuccotti Park in NYC with Livio Sanchez (film editor) and Debby Brand (camera operator) to see firsthand what Occupy Wall Street was all about and record what we could.

    What we found were people united by a sense that our national narrative is off course and that resentment over the patent unfairness of our current system is building. Perhaps the most common expression we found was that people, to varying degrees, thought that there was something systemically wrong.

    Because of this widespread view of ‘everything being wrong,’ there was, naturally, no single message or thing around which everyone had gathered. Instead, the view was simply that the system being discussed — political, capitalist, economic, or monetary — was broken.

    When you hold such a view, there’s really no ‘ask’ that makes sense. If the political system is irretrievably in the clutches of special interests, then voting new members into that system is perceived to be a waste of effort.

    The short video below (less than four minutes) captures well what we observed:

    On the Airwaves and InterTubes

    With the launch of the new book, Chris has been busy delivering the Three E message to a media slowly awakening to the severity of our predicament. Recent world developments (spiking silver/gold/oil/food prices, a plummeting US dollar, renewed PIIGS debt concerns, MENA unrest, and Japan’s woes, to name just a few) are sobering signals that we are far into the timeline that the Crash Course has predicted.

    I thought I’d compile some of Chris’ more recent and notable media appearances for those who may not have seen them yet.

    This morning, BNN – Canada’s Business News Network – aired this interview with Chris discussing the implications of the coming energy crunch (click image to launch the video):

    What Difference Has This Site Made In Your Life?

    Many of you know that Chris’ book version of The Crash Course will be released in late March. An important part of the efforts around the launch involves determining how best to describe its subject matter and its significance for readers.

    Chris and I had the same thought: Why not let the ChrisMartenson.com community help us tell the story? After all, you’re the ones putting the material we discuss here into daily practice in your lives. People will value your honest opinions much more than whatever copy we write.

    We thought a good idea would be to ask those of you with easy access to video tools (e.g., webcams, iPhones, etc) to answer the question, “What difference has this site made in your life?”.

    We’ll then edit the submissions together into a short but hard-hitting reel that helps people realize the value of the insights and practical guidance they get from understanding the Three Es, the Crash Course, Chris’ posts & the many other discussions that happen here on ChrisMartenson.com.

    If you’re willing to participate, here are the steps to follow:

    A New Page – In the Media

    When I was out in San Francisco in January, Janaia Donaldson interviewed me for Peak Moment Television and, with Robyn’s excellent technical abilities, turned out a very nice product.  I’d like to direct you both this video clip in particular and to Peak Moment’s excellent content in general:

    [video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpm8J958N18]

    Because media appearances have been piling up and people said they couldn’t find certain past interviews or materials (heck, neither could we!), we decided to put all our media on one page, which you will soon be able to access via the navigation menu above in the About section, or by following this link right now

    We’ll try and keep this page updated with new material as it comes out, but if we forget, please remind us and we’ll get it entered.

    One missing ‘block’ of material would be articles about your efforts to use the Crash Course in your communities.  If you have any media links that speak to your efforts, we’d love to include them here as well.  Just let us know.

    Best,
    Chris
