Children are naive, aren't they. Marx was an ideologue and naive, what did he know on how things really work or how people behave. Everybody wants a little more (or ALOT more). Is the UAW a childhood heroic organization? Maybe to some, I just never thought that way. But are they naive? They are still around and try to do the best for there members, eventhough things have changed in the work world and employment law. They so far outlasted Marx and his kind. There will always be unions in certain companies, gov't agencies or industries, whether you like it or not - live with it.
