workers own the means of production, exactly? Those are lofty goals, and you're absolutely right about that being a good thing. So, get me from here to there. You don't have to provide all the details - just the framework with some basic steps in the process. I'll be waiting for your plan. I've been waiting for 40 years for such a plan.Frankly, I'm not bright enough to come up with one, although I've tried. Maybe you have the answer, but it's going to take more than slogans that date back over 100 years, I'm afraid. You've provided a slogan. Now match it with a plan. I've read Marx and Engels, too, and Lenin and all the others. What's your plan to move from here to there?

By the way, I've owned the means of my production since 1974. I produce goods and sell them. The goods change from time to time, but I own the means of production. It's worked OK, but not great. Right now, it's not working so well, but I continue to do as I have always done - make a living by my wits. It's how I live. I'd love it if everyone could do the same. It's not easy. Sometimes, it seems impossible. I'm a bright guy, and I have struggled to make ends meet a number of times in those almost 40 years. So, how does a guy who has worked in a factory all his life do it. What's he going to produce? Where does he get the equipment needed to do that production? What do you do to earn your keep?

Lots of questions - damned few answers. It's time to come up with some answers.
