Flint, I saw your appeal for a response, and decided to go to one of the many links you posted, the one about what would an anarchist society be like. My problem is, I haven't got the time or the energy to read all that bumf now. If you want a response you're going to have to wait while I pull on my waders. I usually log on here after a hard day scratching a living, and what I write at the moment keeps me up too late and adds to my huge sleep debt. But don't worry, I promise I'll try to read even half of it, and get back to you eventually.

Just a couple of things though - I had a similar conversation with Qx about how the net is still prohibitive to low wage earners. For flips sake, I can hardly afford it ! Anyway, Qx reckoned it was a low percentage of the desired audience that were able to access the IWW website.

You also say many people have different ideas of "where we should go". Do you guys waste much time arguing over it ? Or do wobblies (whatever that means) do whatever they like under the IWW banner, as long as they have workers interests at heart?

I'm not trying to escape the issue Flint, I'll read the stuff when I can. I'm just trying to buy some time - be patient with me.

By the way, I just want you to know that when I first started posting here it was to annoy people, for a laugh - but I actually quite enjoy the debate now. No doubt you can tell this from my posts recently.

And I tried to set up an address at bigfoot, but I fecked it up and never got round to giving it another go.

Til next time.
