The Perversity of Trade Unions

MuadDib Anarchism, Class War, Musings, Syndicalism Leave a Comment

Trade Unions are the result of perverted bureaucracy, the workers pay “intellectual” business representatives, to not represent them as they truly wish. Trade Unions foster a crippling hierarchy that is authoritative in nature, due to the fact the workers do not speak for themselves truly, as compared to a horizontal union like the Industrial Workers of The World. My experience …

I hear workers complaining about their situation.

A bomb went off. Bombs actually, the plural, there were two of them, multiple blasts.

Steven Kurlander posted a piece on the Huffington Post that attempts to call anarchists terrorists.

Obviously the parents wouldn’t …
