"Capitalism's recurring tendencies toward extreme and deepening inequalities of income, wealth, and political and cultural power require resignation and acceptance – because there is no alternative?"
"The largest corporation in the Basque region, MC is also one of Spain's top ten biggest corporations (in terms of sales or employment). Far better than merely surviving since its founding in 1956, MC has grown dramatically. Along the way, it added a co-operative bank, Caja Laboral (holding almost $25bn in deposits in 2010). And MC has expanded internationally, now operating over 77 businesses outside Spain. MC has proven itself able to grow and prosper as an alternative to – and competitor of – capitalist organizations of enterprise."
There are many alternatives to the ways of corporatism/militarism and 1% bankster control over our collective resources. Those that say otherwise are clearly deluded liars with a vested interest in the status quo. Collective ownership of community resources, and worker ownership of co-operative businesses are the future of democratic society.
