Dear Prof. Fox Piven,
regarding your remark (on KPFA-Interview: Behind the News with Doug Henwood, for November 19, 2011 - 10:00 am) about how the 99% could show resistance against the will of the ruling 1% by striking, I wanted to mention that, given knowledge about neoliberal so-called "reform" measures as a deliberate structural transition-/transformation-process, there were completely unused possibilities for public education union members.
As I mentioned earlier there is theoretical means of better understanding what the unaware obedience of the 99% contribute to "reforms" in daily working processes, and where the occurrence of a lack of their performance would let suffer "reform"-projects their certain decline.
Thats is why I fully agree with your thoughts, although it seems to me that at this point you're a bit unnecessarily understating. There is a lot more available to slow down or even obstruct so-called "reforms" in public education-system (and elsewhere also) to prevent privatization of public domain.

It is my experience, by being challenged and challenging dark african people, thet they are really innocent and primitive. Imaging real tribal dancing in Africa, and the witch doctor etc. They are aboriginal people which arrived, in the U.S.A. The kind of rights and morals we know do not exist in their social structure. -Sure someone or Christan claimed to tame those savages. And they are not poor, but primitive which means they are like the rest of aboriginals of Africa. But I see nothing which advances their cause in the U.S.A. unless we simplify the structure, and do not hold the fundamental differences between the cultured and the primitive against the Africans, which they in turn hold against the white Europeans. I did not think this is a statement about my opinion because I have done some stucy in sociology. The nature of the higher functions depend on the alleviation of want and insecurity - Maslow's hierarchy of need. And when that is done for the Africans, they do not respond normally. They generally want to undermine the whites, and bring whites into the a "golden era" of primitivism! Uga Chaka -Uga Chaka 0 Uga Chaka! In the computer department, we have to restrict higher access computing functions for our own executives, or they couldnot be accountable to us for what the machine does. A machine represents a tribe of people, in cyberspace. Similar a tribe represents the accounts of the dancing savages and the witch doctor that eggs them on. Uga Chaka -Uga Chaka 0 Uga Chaka!
