    is always best to organize from the ground up -- problem is that it is usually slower so people get impatient and go for the big fix (Vuelvan Caras). Also, even when things get bigger, you can usually break them up into decentralized parts (like Mondragon's sub-categories of coops) so you have a solid base.

    course, you're right -- until we get rid of capitalism, these are only efforts toward a solution and will eventually get absorbed under the current system -- but just trying them helps people see "another world is possible" and, I think, is part of the transformative struggle.
