I don't believe capital controls humanity.  I believe humanity decides who controls humanity.  It is our choice (conscious or not) to use capital as the measuring stick of our values (to determine if, or how much, someone else is controlled - "you ain't got money, you don't deserve health care for your deadly illness").  It is our responsibility to stand firm in our belief that no one should be controlled - we are all partners in this co-op we call life.

ESOP ownership is merely the capitalist's model  with a different cover sheet... it is still the number of shares owned that determines the number of votes you control, i.e., capital controls humanity.
CO-OP ownership is based on individual membership, regardless of the size of your investment... humanity controls capital... "Delivering economic democracy, one person = one vote." (with political democracy, sure to follow... an interesting concept)

David,

How is your cooperative different from employee-owned companies?
