Well, Oekonux has nothing to do with class struggle in any meaning I
know of. 


If that is fundamental to you you'd better leave. And I think
it's at best a waste of time to harass peer production with your
outdated concepts.

The undeveloped state of the class struggle, as well as their own
surroundings, causes Socialists of this kind to consider themselves
far superior to all class antagonisms. They want to improve the 
condition of every member of society, even that of the most favored.
Hence, they habitually appeal to society at large, without distinction
of class; nay, by preference, to the ruling class. For how can people,
when once they understand their system, fail to see it in the best 
possible plan of the best possible state of society?. Hence, they 
reject all political, and especially all revolutionary, action; they 
wish to attain their ends by peaceful means, and endeavor, by small 
experiments, necessarily doomed to failure, and by the force of 
example, to pave the way for the new social Gospel.

In keeping with outdated concepts, I think I will from now on 
describe oekonux and simular projects as the utopian school of 
peer-production, as the historical parallels with the Utopian 
socialists are numerous, the above passages, which some here may 
find familiar, shows you where already refuted in 1848, and yet 
you feel I'm the one with "outdated concepts."
