: : I'm sure you would. And so would Lark, and so would MDG, and so would...

: The reason being that I object to such work - what about vegetarians? Further, there would be plenty of people who would not refuse to work an abatoir - why force the minority to do so?

Force!! Force people to do tasks?!! That's a least as bad as capitalism, anyone for 'it's damn worse'?!!

Bad luck Barry, look at the J18 and N30 protests and you'll find the common denominator was INDIVIDUALS, not classes or the proletariat or any other rhetorical wind, asserting themselves in an effort to frustrate institutions and processes that they see as DISEMPOWERING them.

Empowerment is the means and the end, it's everything, it's engendered in the notion of DIRECT ACTION that is taking over the popular protest movements and leaving political parties and trot 'vanguards' in it's wake.

People dont trust the state, they dont trust the market, they sure as hell dont trust assasinators like Trotsky and lets jsut see your mass following...er...zilch, if I'm not wrong.
