[iDC] Why do we, the Users beg instead of co-owning for our own benefit?

So many have written:
> Why won't Facebook, Monsanto, ConAgra, Nike, Coca-Cola, Chiquita, etc.
> do what *we*, the Users, want?

Why won't *we*, the Users organize to purchase and therefore OWN the
> Means of Production which we finally pay for anyway?

Why won't *we*, the Users buy the Physical Sources such as Computers,
Farms, Factories, etc. so we only pay for the Costs of production
(including wages) and finally have complete control over how they are

Why do *we*, the Users beg those who have bought these things instead
of taking the risk and responsibility of ownership upon ourselves?

I wonder if we will ever mature enough to get together and co-own the
Sources of the things we need...
