About Those Co-ops

Only rarely are they related to egalitarianism or 'socialism'. As with non-profits, it's often about dodging taxes.

The AP is a major Co-op:

"AP operates as a not-for-profit cooperative with more than 4,000 employees working in more than 240 worldwide bureaus. AP is owned by its 1,500 U.S. daily newspaper members. They elect a board of directors that directs the cooperative."

Looking at the board of directors, I have a feeling there is not a lot of imagining about "Another World is Possible".
