96. I'm with you Demeter, but I've been on strike since 2003

They don't even know I exist.

The key is to have everyone do it, regardless of their fear of lost wages or jobs. It has to shut down everything. Mass Transit, Mail Service, Supply and Distribution. Government Administration, etc.

Just like Gandhi was able to do in India.

It would be interesting to see the response of the U.S. Government. Would the start cracking heads like the British did in India, till the pile of unconscious, injured victims became too much to handle caused them to rethink the Head Cracking and brute force method?

Personally, I think Americans are to entrenched in the EGO of maintaining the Rat Race, and the system they feed on a daily basis fo the Symbolic opium of Money. If they knew the real secret of the U.S. Dollar, which is that it is backed by nothing but their own promise to pay, then their would be a mass strike of amazing dimensions.

It's kind of funny, but I haven't worked for anyone other than myself for the past 6 years. I don't have a small business, other than making the kingdom of Grinchie more comfortable and enjoyable. I work my own hours, and can work like a dog and enjoy it. I make no wages, but my work is totally satisfying, and creates tangible assets for me and my family. If I work too hard, or strain my back, I have the ability to take the time necessary to heal, without worry of paying any bills whatsoever.

I have never had a better job in my life! Joy of Work, the time and freedom to educate ones self regarding Business practices, instead of being a drone in some cubicle somewhere is amazingly refreshing, and it is reflected in perpetual health, a happy disposition, and a neverending pursuit of knowledge.

It's out there, but I fear that for many living in the City don't have a clue how simple life can be, because all they know is the Social System built fto keep them in control and dependant on resources shipped in from foreign lands.
