  •  Superb Documentary About Working Cooperatives (5+ / 0-)

    The video Johnnythebendit references is a wonderful example of how workers can come together and create, not merely an economic livelihood for themselves and their families, but deep human relations that provide spiritual sustenance to everyone who works there.  

    What a contrast with the horrid conditions in Mr. Gou's Foxconn corporate dictatorship!

    This documentary shows what I think may be the essence of why we need to abolish capitalism and replace it with a new economic system.  Capitalism not only impoverishes, but it destroys the individuality and creativity of the majority of its workers.

    Contrast this with the workers' cooperatives shown in the video, in which shared ownership and shared decision-making allows each individual to thrive, to establish real human relationships with his/her fellow workers, and creates a real community which meets everyone's needs and aspirations.

    Thank you so much, Johnnythebandit, for providing this invaluable link!
