  • Guatemala - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    system built of autonomous units begins to exhibit a complex collective and mutually beneficial behavior The self organizing construction of ant colonies The inadvertent hive selection techniques of honeybees The mechanism of indirect coordination between organisms some trace left in an environment which stimulates the performance of the next complementary action by another which leads to the spontaneous appearance of a coherent pattern necessary for continued survival A collective consciousness A swarm intelligence dependent on no single leader but beholden to the whole To a single achievable goal And the Swarm has spoken But Perez Molina was merely the flint The embers have been smoldering for decades not just in Guatemala but all over Latin America Brazil Chile Peru Ecuador Honduras Once the Swarm hit critical mass all it took was five months Five months and tens of thousands of citizens in a steadily growing protest movement demanding justice accountability equality A beautiful example of the Internet as a platform for equality and grassroots power A beautiful example of the people s ability to call the shots from below in the most unlikely of places a nation where a few months ago prevailing wisdom said it couldn t have happened
