The People’s Creation
“We don’t have to concern ourselves when people ask, “but what did Congress intend us to be?” Our movement does not exist because it was created from the top (i.e. Congress) down. Rather it was created from the bottom (i.e. the people) up.
We told Congress what we intended to be: cooperatives that would try to serve the needs of their members, whatever those needs might be.” (pg52)
