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.

Oh yes I realize that. Captilism is not working for the average person. Something new needs to emerge I am all ready for it as long as the new system in place is better not worse.
The new system needs to put people before money!

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?
