The watts powering your machine were created in a powerhouse built by Union Craftsmen. The power was carried to you on lines built by Union Linemen.
When a storm knocks down those lines at 3am it is Union Linemen that leave their families and risk their lives so that you can charge your cellphone
while you sleep. The data network you use to share your opinion goes through data centers build by Union Wiremen. When you bought your computer, it
was brought to you on Union freight along with your food and your panties. When hurricanes destroy our Oil refineries, it is Union Craftsmen that
travel across the nation to rebuild them while living in tent cities. Sorry that we have done so much to "destroy" your comfort zone.
Or maybe I'm completely wrong and you have built your own self sufficient power generating plant on your property. After which you built your own
computer from parts at radio shack and somehow miracled your post onto ATS servers.
Touchy, touchy. The true hive mentality of the "Unionist" is in full steam, and how defensive they get when confronted by an independent man...the
hive goes into full attack mode, each element nothing more then a small peace of the gigantic maniacal construct.
First to clear a few things, just for you:
- I live in four countries so I really don't know, or care, about your "Unions give you everything" rant. All I know, and care about, is that the
services, machinery, and work I need done I pay for...end of story. I'm sure an engineer not holding a "Union" card will be able to get the job
- I do not discriminate, so I don't go around asking people providing me with a service if they are "Union", or not. That said, I am unable to
answer your question.
- I own a couple of smallish businesses, none of my craftsmen are "Union". I pay them above the market price, and they seem to be happy with that.
Why do I do it? Because I want the Best people working for me...I want them happy and accomplished, both as workers (for doing what they love
passionately), and as Human Beings (not a piece of replaceable machinery).
- I own a factory in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, theoretically a socialist/communist country, and have never heard of an "Union" there. They
have Workers/Students/Youth Organizations fully integrated into the Communist Party of Vietnam. Again, I pay well above the stipulated wage. My
Company is community oriented, and I have received various Honers, both from local, and national Vietnamese Government Officials. I'm willing to bet
some of our components are in your computer
- As for my own stuff: All my computers are assembled by me, including laptops, and the hardware for them comes from all over the world...not sure how
the Peoples Republic Of China views Unions...but I can guess, same goes for the Republic Of China (Taiwan), Singapore, Malaysia, and so on. I don't
know about you (as a matter of fact I do), but about 90% of my electronic components come from places with child/slave labour. And most of the tools,
components, clothing, and so on, used by "your glorified Union worker" also come from the same places...so, I really don't get your point about
owning so much of my lifestyle to the Trade Unions
Speaking about my Long Island Home, which I consider my base, all shopping is done in local small businesses. My food is bought locally, organic when
possible. All other appliances (specially sound) are bought at local NYC stores, that mostly carry pieces by small American/Canadian/UK artisans (so
no Trade Unionist in those companies).
As for your little "joke" about the power plant, you are not totally wrong, but almost totally. My energy consumption is minimal, since I sell
energy back to my supplier in the brightest months. If I where to use my generators I could, in fact, go totally independent (it would just be a bit
I would also like to mention that I did not directly want to attack Trade Unions (I prefer to just ignore them).
It just seems strange to me that in the so-called "Age of Awakening" people find it acceptable to:
a) Be labelled, herded, and processed, like cattle, or a simple piece of machinery working for the "Collective".
b) People need to have a card, or chip, in their hands, in order to obtain any sense of worth.
c) Some people find it perfectly acceptable to replace a tyrannical system by another tyrannical system.
d) The lack of self awareness, self respect, and self worth.
I was under the impression that this site was built around the idea of the Individual fighting the schizoid society, in which we live, not creating a
far more dangerous, pernicious, and malignant "New Collective".
