: As for the IWW, we are a growing union of people that have something
: called self-respect, dignity, something you slaves may never know.

We have self respect and dignity. Unfortunately, we can't pay our mortgages by living on welfare and growing carrots in our back gardens. So if we are slaves, fine. It doesn't make you a superior being because you are not in this situation. Where do you think the money came from to buy this PC we are discussing this issue on right now ? That's right - we EARNED it. You know, exchanged our labour for wages. And it wasn't cheap and we bloody well worked hard for it, and the privilege to have this debate. And out of interest, how do you feed and clothe yourself? If you are so opposed to society and how it operates go and live off the fat of the land in the outback somewhere and have a bit of piece of mind that you realised your goal.

: And yes, direct egalitarian democracy is not only attainable, it's done all the time.

Where, when how ? (And don't say in a kibbutz. We've heard that all. Tell us something new )
There are two ways of existing in the world -1998, subsistence living or wage slavery. Which one do you fall into ?

: But you'd never know that, you're too happy making others rich.

You're a slave too you know. And a bloody arrogant one at that. If you have all the knowledge then share it and spread it, don't sit in your ivory tower crapping on everyone who doesn't think like you.
