    are committed to peaceful action. Are "crimes against property" still peace? That is a good question to ponder.


    •  Definitely Not Peace (0+ / 0-)

      Definitely illegal
      Definitely NOT civil disobedience

      Thought I'd get more than a couple hide ratings when I read it later, my emotions get the better of me.

      More of a day dream than reality, but the negative societal impact of closing these plants has been well known and irrefutable for decades.  The cost benefit is severely impacted when that machinery is rendered useless half way around the world and I'm sure there's no lack of subtle sabotage going on anyways, how could there not be?  An entire class of workers thrown out in the street with the complete cooperation of their working class peers (supervisors, truckers, shippers, etc.) with no recourse.  Protest, voting, letters to the editor, nothing to any effect to stem the tide throughout the years.
