This is my personal spin on the worldwide "99%" movement.

Thanks.
That is a odd link... it feels like we've slipped into a bad SyFy channel movie of the week. And how this bill surgically bypasses the Posse Comitatus Act is beyond me.

Time to move to Canada before they seal their borders.

I keep telling myself to get a passport and go to Australia or Europe

Best get a move on... either that or get cozy with some trust-worthy smuggler types. I hear New Zealand is lovely this time of year.

Damned pretty!
But it seems (arguably) appropriate for the "1" to be an unsustainable gold, on top of the world, (rather than the color of greenbacks) in a white envelope, and maybe the world is collectively brown rather than pinko, and the level, horizontal elements (I think) stabilize the field in a way that contradicts any sense of impending change; like "99" repeated, fading and revolving on a busted odometer, for example.
It's a very stimulating image!

All really valid points, BTW. Thanks for the valuable feedback.

Eeevocative! From sea to shining sea, a nation unequally divided against itself, Red Square, a level playing field...

Nor am I. The way your poster's set up struck me as the sun setting on the 99%. Glad I'm wrong! :)

The sun is setting on the lone 1 - "Revolution", restated to "Evolution" as in inevitable and necessary. Thanks for the feedback, it helps me to see what others see.

OK...so it's a "reverse" sunset.

And, I agree, Scott...it does feel like a long-overdue evolution in thinking is happening. At the very least, the Occupy movement has changed the national conversation away from the ridiculous one over the debt.

I like how they've evolving and moving their occupations into other areas (homes, K Street), too. I think (and hope) that it's the best way to get meaningful legislative action.

Think Sunrise, not Sunset (the light looks the same) - change is coming, ready for it or not, I'm back to my theme of chopping the "R" off of "Revolution", because even that has evolved and some dialogue has been undertaken.

Got it...and, sunrise makes more sense. Though, to me, it looks like the sun is *rising* on the 1.

And, rather than chopping off the 'R'...what about making it look like it's fading out or degrading in some way?

Just a thought. :-)

And...thanx for the explanation and dialogue. I appreciate it!

Ditto, helps me to see what I took for granted and missed altogether.
