    That sums up the policy of the owning class quite well. Money is supposed to be power, after all, and what is power if not power over other people's lives? In short, what good is money if you can't use it to boss others around?

        Please give me your attention
        I'll introduce to you
        A man that is a credit to
        "Our Red, White and Blue";
        His head is made of lumber,
        and solid as a rock;
        he is a common worker
        and his name is Mr. Block.
        And Block he thinks he may

        Be President some day.

        (Chorus)
        Oh, Mr. Block,
        you were born by mistake,
        You take the cake.
        You make me ache.
        Tie a rock to your block
        and jump in the lake.
        Kindly do that for Liberty's sake.

        -Joe Hill
