A rose by any other name, or in this case a manure pile. I am sorry, but you will never convince me to work hard to support those unwilling to work.
Technological capacity to produce enough to satisfy everyone's needs already exists globally and has done so for many decades. Yet needs continue to remain unmet on a massive scale. Why? Quite simply because scarcity is a functional requirement of capitalism itself.
Anarchism is stateless socialism, Bakunin
Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin (Russian: Михаи́л Алекса́ндрович Баку́нин, IPA: [mʲɪxɐˈil ˌbaˈkunʲin]; 30 May [O.S. 18 May] 1814–1 July 1876) was a well-known Russian revolutionary and theorist of collectivist anarchism. He has also often been called the father of anarchist theory in general...
Ok, they go unused because there is no profit. Why no profit? Most likely because no one is buying the product. What good does it do to produce a product no one is buying? This is why workers don't make good owners. You can't just produce something and hope to get paid. You have to produce a good or service someone else wants. If they don't want it, they won't buy it, you still go hungry but now you have wasted time and resources. You advocate workers owning the means of production. I have to ask, have you met the "workers"? I mean seriously, most of them don't want the responsibility of having to decide things. Most of them want to do as little as possible, then they want to go and turn on the idiot box preferably with some form of alcohol or drug. These people let american idol distract them from reality. I am sorry, I wish the old style "American spirit" would return. It is dead or at least fading away. Many people prefer their slavery.

So once again socialism is 'the workers ownership of the means of production', not government handouts, national health care etc.

Wow...you would expect this to be on the front web page of news sites but Fox news has NOTHING. Not even a little, hidden mention of it. Absolutely pathetic. They are trying to downplay it like it isn't happening.
Added: CNN, NOTHING, MSNBC, NOTHING. This is just unbelievable. It absolutely has to be orchestrated. For this to be treated like it's a non-event, utilizing hundreds of cops, is just pathetic. I'm convinced, they are all under somebody else's control. So sad our media has come to this.edit on 17-9-2011 by axslinger because: (no reason given)

Wouldn't this have been more effective on a weekday? Exactly what are they shutting down? And last question: How much you wanna bet that come Monday morning the police will have cleared the last of them out?
