To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

From Eric Husman at GrimReader:

Any factory where the workers are legally prevented from quitting, striking, or organizing, and/or where the employers have perpetrated a fraud upon the workers by successfully misrepresenting the conditions of work, and/or where the workers were forced out of their (now) second-best choice of work by government policy.

Is there not some level of empowerment - that workers are unable to meet their aspirations, that they are trapped within a system where they can never see a way out, that they are without hope, cogs in a machine designed to only produce profits for someone else.
