Not from the individual angle, not from the personal point of view, but rather along the lines of what is good or bad for all concerned.
What are cooperatives? They are associations of men and women who want to solve their own problems and who invite others to join them in doing so. It’s that simple.
It was offered to us to demonstrate that through cooperative efforts we can better the lot of our co-workers. We have also been given the privilege to show that where all personal gain and benefit is eliminated, greater good can be accomplished for the benefit of all.
Cooperation plants the seed of economic and spiritual common-sense while the grand and glorious world-saving and epoch-making theories are still struggling with the wind.
