TD:: We seem to spend most of our time defending our right to speak out against them !

BASE727 If you would not pick on them so much, you would not have to speak out and be defending youselvevs all the time

TD 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.

BASE727 You should visit the IWW sites more often and you will learn more about democratic unions. The preamble to the constitution speaks the truth about the working situation for workers.

TD We know they are trying to help people, and that's very commendable

BASE727 You could help more if you were not in confrentation with the IWW people all the time..

TD. If the IWW can convince us - we'll join up ! Maybe we're too cynical

BASE727 Maybe you should join them and help them out, it would make a difference than fighting with them all the time.

TD 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 !

BASE From what I can see the IWW is growing all the time, because more and more people are buying into it.. In conclusion, what's wrong with red flags?
