Co-operatives are businesses owned and run by their members. Whether those members are customers, employees or residents, all are given an equal say in what the business does and a fair share in the profits. One billion people across the world are members of co-operatives.
Today, the co-operative movement is a significant part of the UK’s economy, growing by 21% to £33 billion, and outgrowing the economy as a whole during the recession. Across the country, 6,000 cooperatives have nearly 13 million members.

Pity our government was not run that way
To understand who rules over you look to whom you tube can't criticise

The media isn't there to cover the news
It's there to cover the news up

All establishment lies pass through three stages
First, they are accepted as being self evident
Second, they are exposed by diligent research
Third, they are enforced

Agreed.
Co-Op owned businesses are a great deal for those who work in them.
Everybody gets a fair share of any profits.
Leicester City fan club is run as a Co-Op I helped set it up.
Once you get the numbers joining you have great leverage to negotiate good deals.
Not many know that the old NSDAP was all for co-ops when it started.
That changed later sadly but at first the NSDAP was more socialist than it was nationalist in economics.

Of course, the expression of Marxism/Leninism showed us the way...

In the opposite direction...

Not wanting to make it another Nazi topics, the forum is already infested with it, but taking anything the NSDAP said seriously is dangerous, knowing how well their propaganda machine was organized (by jews, ironically).

Co-operatives are indeed great and work well. Capitalism -in the true sense that is, not the current crapitalism- is all about it. Small businesses freely and much more efficiently competing with larger inefficient corporations.

Humans are social animals and seek cooperation all the time, when they are free to do so. If you're forced to cooperate it's different.

Nationalist economics is also not the key as people from different backgrounds can work together (co-operate) very well. Not passports, cultures, races or even languages define that, yet mindset, a common goal and respect for someones abilities and support for improving weaker points.

It's all around us, but the media and governments spread the propaganda that the State is needed, else everything would be "chaos". Look at independent tribes in present (deep in the Amazone probably) and past and for 10s of 1000s of years we have grown as humans like it.

Bleddy kiss of death to effective co-ops was Marxism/Leninism.
Trouble with communism is that for every fecker actually producing something there are four or five party-member pen pushers sat in cosy offices buggering the job up.
Bit like our NHS administration/ 'managers' today.

cooperatives are a good commune-ist concept.
