That's Why I Always Got The Gun

I love this post by Jordon Barab.

Well yeah, I liked it too, but remembering the history of the labor movement in the late 19th and 1930s I can't deny that real guns came to mind. And I seem to remember that the labor movement had its greatest gains during WWII.

What pisses me off about the last thirty years is that it has all been so easy. We made Carnegie and Rockefeller sweat. There's a line out of LeCarre when the Philby figure describes America in horror and disgust:"The institionalized oppression of the working class."
