After reading all sorts of news reports on the COSATU congress, I decided to read the COSATU 10th congress's declaration for myself.
Whilst there were a few points where I found myself nodding my head in agreement, overall I find the thinking... conflicted. Perhaps even archaic.
Is all this communist rhetoric still relevant in this day and age?
Do we need this notion of idealogical warfare?
Can't they see the conflict between their views on ownership/equity/capital formation/ROI and what they plan to do with "workers deferred income"?
Why does COSATU have the right to control this "deferred income" anyway?
And what about this workers bank? No equity, no managers, no executives there I suppose
