  • “But what are your demands?”

    “We don’t have demands.”

    “You must have demands.”

    “We don’t.”

    “Why don’t you have demands?”

    “When you make demands, you give politicians the power to deny those demands, and by doing that, you give politicians power. So we don’t make demands. We don’t issue lists. That is the source of our power. That is why those in positions of power find us so threatening. We can’t be bargained with. We can’t be satiated. We can’t be suppressed. We have no center. We have no leaders. We self-organize. We exchange information. We act. We are like the Internet. We are everywhere and nowhere.”

    “But can it last?”

    “We think it can.”
