At Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, where hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters are camped out, there’s a big meeting every night at 7:00.

The protesters call it the General Assembly, and it’s a meeting where every single person has a say in every single decision that gets made. For the protesters, this is a model society.

It’s a model where it takes a really long time to make a decision — like, say, whether to buy more sleeping bags for the group.

I visited the park for a General Assembly earlier this week. Here’s what I heard.
