To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry and the most equitable distribution thereof that may be possible upon the basis of the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service.
Clause 4, part 4 should be adopted by any party that really wants to smash the oligarchy of the current owners of the majority of the worlds wealth. Don’t think nationalisation or unions, it was always a narrow blinkered view; actually give the industry to those who work in it. Scrap the shares – a system to distribute he wealth to a minority view. Everybody who works in the industry owns a part of it – equal to the amount of time you have worked there. No bonuses, no dividends. The concept of money drastically needs to alter. How corrupt is a system where you can just produce more if needed!
Just its because it is the way it has worked for years doesn’t make it right – just look at th emess we are in>
The pleasure one must have knowing that you are part of the ownership of your work.
