Well, the trolls know that cooperatives can't challenge the existing system anyway . . . it's a start.

"we spend a lot of time protesting things we dont like, instead of building something new"

Exactly.

Although, the other guy claiming that the bailouts were good because it led to "nationalization"... I really cant believe they put that in there.

The problem I see with cooperatives is that they will put unions out of business.

I think that's the point. Unions are for adversarial workplaces. They aren't needed in a cooperative environment.
