  I want to speak with my fellow workers and our allies, farmers and 
other exploited producers.

  No, not at all. 

  The main goal is to convince my fellow workers that we should stop 
being fair to our boss and pursue a trade-union and political strategy 
which is based only on _our_ interests, and not a "fair balance" between 
the interests of working people and of the capitalist class and their 
individual capitalists. 

   Those interests are irreconcilable opposed to each other.

   The hypocrite are those who preach that we should avoid any action 
which risks to ruin the particular capitalist enterprise we happen to 
work for. 

   The contrary should be our guiding light: our lives are more 
important than their profits, or as the LCR says so nicely in French 
"nos vies valent plus que leur profits".
