: p.s. dont be picking on the IWW, they are only trying to help..

What do you mean "picking on them ?" We seem to spend most of our time defending our right to speak out against them !! And because we do have the balls speak out we are classed as "company plants" ! We went to the IWW website, and read their preamble to their constitution. It's fighting talk ! But it is also very idealistic. We just basically want them to explain to us how they are going to achieve their aims. We know they are trying to help people, and that's very commendable, but if people get led up the garden path it's a different matter. They can have all the opinions they like - but until they can explain the nuts and bolts of exactly how they will change things, there's no way we will accept the public drubbing we are receiving from their members / supporters ! If your ideas and hypotheses don't stand up to argument and questioning, then they aren't worth a jot. If the IWW can convince us - we'll join up ! Maybe we're too cynical - but we don't believe you can exist in this day and age without questioning what people say and looking for other reasons for what they do. But if the IWW are proposing an alternative to the capitalist system they need to make sure it's feasible before they expect the masses to buy into it !

Have a nice day
