The oppression of having to produce stuff for anyone to have anything to consume is independent of politics. It's more of a thermodynamics situation. If everyone waits for their bread to be baked by someone else there's no effing bread you stupid baby.

No clue, but if company ownership is the line, then pretty much every airline and car company qualifies since the employees unions are shareholders as well. Until last December, GM had a UAW guy on their board.
I guess I meant operate a business then.
But there are lots of companies where the employees are the owners, though not necessarily the exclusive owners.
Ok.

Well, yes, but they have rationalizations for it that more or less equate to, "Well, if you suckers are dumb enough to work, you deserve to be forced to support me."

Fun Fact: I'm currently taking a class called "The Politics Equality and Inequality."

So far, I've learned that pretty much everything is unequal. Worth the tuition for sure.

And some classes are more worthwhile than others? That seems like a case of .. what's the word I'm looking for ... when things aren't balanced so everything has an identical value ...

They are all valuable and valid classes, Ellie, it's just that the capitalist patriarchy doesn't place value on some of them.
