	Carefull with this aproach. This was always the plan of the YIPPIES
(60's radical group like the weathermen). Work from inside to destroy the
system. Unfortunatly after a while your perception of what is wrong with the
system changes and it is very hard to detroy what you no longer hate. When
the idea of change moves from "The system is corrupt and must be destroyed."
to " My boss is a prick" the efforts go wrong. I find it HIGHLY interesting
that most of the people now raping these companies, spilling polutants,
selling our jobs to the lowest bidder, and looking out for themselves are
the same people 35 years ago at woodstock and marching on washington. I
would not be suprised at all to find out that Keneth Lay got that name for
his actions at the first woodstock.
