: best way to avoid giving those naughty people a profit is to ignore their ideas, innovations, organisations which create employment opportunities

But most of the ideas and innovations come from the workers, not the owners anyhow.

:- and set up collectives. People just dont do it, and the few landowning hereditary people are not in sufficient number to 'force' us to rent their land or whatever. poeple havent ignored offers of employment in order to pursue collective farm/factories - so they must have perceived a greater benefit in going to work for companies, and creating their own companies.

1:Lack of start up capital.
2:inherent structures of Capitalism mean that co-operatives under the market will require us to behave exactly like individual bosses (i.e. sackings wage cuts, exploitation).
3:Lack of opportunity, most market space is alwready taken up, by firms with much more capital (see 1).

No brainwashing needed.
