Great Stuff for Union Rabble Rousers

I have a soft spot in my heart for the Wobblies. There is something so pure about wanting to overthrow the government and to eliminate all social classes. When did we lose our resolve to such big ideas? Would ANYONE put their life on the line for ANY cause these days? At least in the U.S.?

Nah...we're too easily bought off. Myself included. We've traded in our political zealotry for a steady paycheck and the pursuit of the "American Dream" -- paid for with credit obtained at the interest rate CitiBank says I gotta pay.

And that makes this link to REALLY COOL UNION HISTORY STUFF even more important to look at. So we can remember what it was like to go after something with everything we've got and risk losing it all. Damn! That's an exciting thought. Look this over and GET FIRED UP!

Thanks to OmieWise
