    If workers don't do the work, it doesn't get done and there is no food, clothing, bathing, etc.
    I'm sorry, but who the fuck said worker's don't do the work? Workers do all the work. Workers love to work and be productive. It makes them feel worthy and wholesome. It makes them feel as if they have value.

    That is why they are called working class. Because they labor most days of their lives.

    My god... you're out of touch.

    In the anarchist regions of Spain during the Spanish Civil War, involving as much as 7 to 8 million people for a period of almost three years, workers were incentivized more than ever to go to work (since the workplace eliminated bosses) and the workers who had always performed well and knew their jobs well were able to democratically self manage the workplace.

    It's always been the rank and file workers who know how to keep utilities functioning, keep the railroads working, and the factories producing. Guess what? The management class isn't as indispensable as they have mesmerized themselves into thinking. They fled to the fascist regions of Spain, or they stayed on and received equal wages, but the workers got along just fine with or without them.
