We believe we can't have radical action without radical thought.

Tidal offers theory and strategy as a means of empowering occupiers, whether actual of potential, to envision actions that ultimately transform existing power structures. 

We hope these writings positively impact the Occupy Movement, propel it forward, and clarify its goals.

Langston Hughes

I am the poor white, fooled and pushed
apart, I am the Negro bearing slavery’s scars.
I am the red man driven from the land, I am the immigrant
clutching the hope I seek — And finding only
the same old stupid plan of dog eat dog, of mighty
crush the weak.

O’ let America be America
again — The land that has never been yet
— And yet must BE — The land where
every man is free. The land that’s mine —
The poor man’s, Indian’s, Negro’s, ME —
Who made America, whose sweat and blood,
whose faith and pain, Whose hand at the
foundry, whose plow in the rain, Must bring
back our mighty dream again.

O’ yes, I say it plain, America was never America to me,
And yet I swear this oath — america
will be!
