About Me

Working class born in Stockport near Manchester UK 1948.  A bit slow on the uptake, bullied at school, read my father's books including the Tom Paine classic, The Age of Reason at age 12 and on that basis decided to change the world.

***

Still on that mission and getting more able as time goes on.  Over the intervening years I have worked out what can be done and set the wheels in motion.  It seems to be a very rare thing, to calculate a full plan of action from scratch, but that was the intention and the result is here for all to see, if they want to.

***

Most radicals do not want to, they each have their own idea of what can and can't be done and by whom.  The general perception is that the whole or most of the working class have the task of liberating themselves.  If only it were that easy, but it's not.

***

If any one person can work out a plan, including how to get others to follow it, then from my perspective that has to be me.  I cannot expect another to do what I will not do.  If others accept this reasoning and take on the responsibility they might come up with a better plan than mine.  Otherwise I am looking for support for the practical application of my plan.

Hi Bob,

Just thought I'd touch base as I've completed neglected to keep abreast with message box entries; preferring instead to communicate via my guestbook facility. With the latter, I receive emailed notification of new entries. So it is easier to keep tabs on. Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I was pleased to see that something of a dialogue had started between you and Bill, and hope that this can be extended. If you know of anyone else who might be interested in this sitre do please invite them in. I'm rather keen to get some lively discussion going. Additionally, It would be helpful if you could forward me any data that might be incorporated into the database pages.

Warm regards,

Andy

In my view, the basic plan is to help make the working-class clearly aware of what really constitutes Capitalism's class divisions vs. class-less money-less democratic Socialism/Communism which Marx and Engels used the prefix terms to ism of Social and Common to mean the same thing. While ism stands for ownership or democratic non-ownership in the case of Communism or Socialism. A free association of men and woman with a common goal to democratically organize to take common possession of the means of production and wield it in the interests of all humanity. This can only be done most efficiently and orderly through the democratic process already in place. While exposing undemocratic antics of our opposition.To gain further support from the working-class.Who have it solely in their power to bring about a peaceful sustainable world of abundance, worthwhile for ALL!
