The people in Silicon Valley are walking away from capitalism. They are creating "An enterprise run by the workers themselves." "We love our jobs" they say, according to Wolf.

Wolf goes on, "Here's the irony......there is a person who came up with this idea a long time ago....Karl Marx."

"They think of what they are doing as entrepreneurial initiative." Call it what you like, but these people are largely Republicans who support capitalism, but what they are doing, Wolf points out, is creating cooperative workplaces.

Fascinating short little video. Thanks sff. These are the truths people need to hear.
