Thoughts on Re-Occupation: What will Occupy 2.0 look like?

What do we do next?  The question for revolutionaries in North America is to figure out how to activate the anaesthetized. But why are we anaesthetized?

There is a realization, at least to some extent, that we are the ones responsible for the global ills; the reification of individualism and the exporting of capitalism and 'democracy,' yet the vast majority of people are too 'comfortable' to do anything more than nod their head when presented with the evidence. 

Why is this? In short, most people don’t feel enough pain on a personal level to motivate them to take risks. If this is so, do we need revolution? Yes, because we are living within a lie, and this cannot be healthy.
