We Are All Part of the Labor Movement Now

Things will have to get far rougher before improving, what sounds like a modern day obviouism. The Left Vs Right debate seems trite now, considerin­g it's a living reminder of the Cold War era, where alignments were clearly divisible into radical, conservati­ve or neutral (non-align­ed).

The left encompasse­d what remains today as unions (labor), while the "oppressor­s" were often seen to be employers (owners of factors of production­). While that stalemate kept those in the Haves camp in check, it also created increasing labor costs. This has in turn caused capital flight and business relocation­, leading to unemployme­nt. Needless to say, we're talking of a very vicious cycle here.

Such a fight is noble, especially when painted in the light of civil liberty violations­, which the Wisonsin State government has done. However, there is that gloomy sense of inevitabil­ity that cuts will follow, unemployme­nt will rise, and the grip of labor on the worker might reduce as divide and rule tactics will also take over. You'll have to renounce links to radical unions to get a job.

Isn't earning and the ability to meet basic needs not among the chief issues humans fight to safeguard? I still commend fighting for rights, in an age where government­s the world over are increasing­ly trampling on (or sacrificin­g). I still fear for the future job market despite such a noble initiative by Roberta Lynch.

U.S. Uncut Disrupts Service At Bank Of America

Knicks legend Willis Reed famously commented thus about his team mate Walt Frazier: "It's Clyde's ball. He just lets us play with it once in a while."

How true about the rich (haves) in the eternal quest between them and the have nots. Double standards will always apply, well captured too by Thomas Browne's assertion that a rich man's joke is always funny.

And this is exactly why such bullshit has to stop. While we all can't be equal (fact), it doesn't mean the playing field can't be leveled as much as possible. While this is ultimately left in the hands of mortal men, it can still be done. Such fights against financial institutio­­ns and the cult-like reward and promotion systems therein have to be sustained.

After all, government­­, the chief failure of the citizenry, is still too big and important to be left to politician­­s alone (Thomas Browne). Aluta continua!

Gaddafi Family Lashes Out At UN, Dismisses Security Council Resolution

My chief Q to Col. Gadaffi is why on earth he feels no one else can rule Libya, a country he's been in charge of since 1969? What is he afraid of? This seat should be vacated, just like in neighborin­g Egypt, and quite a bit of the Middle East in recent weeks.

The tribe has spoken, Muammar, and it's unfortunat­e you have to be asked to leave. No ruler is bigger than their nation, being only custodians of that state. It requires humility and character to serve then leave.
