  •  The greatest achievment of would-be Plutocrats (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    is the fact that they have succeeded in convincing far too many working-class people that indeed they should "submit to an autocrat of trade"!  The greatest failure of the Left and Moderate Republicans is that the Plutocrats succeeded.  I am not sure what the answer is.

    Union leaders like George Meany and Walter Reuther would not recognize the sheeple that so many American employees have become.  Instead of risking and working for better compensation and working conditions for themselves, many begrudge other working people who have gained those things.  These sheeple become the willing tools of would-be Plutocrats and Corporatists.  Even Eisenhower. who said that "labor relations will be managed best when worked out in honest negotiation," would be shocked that so many employers no longer believe in the benefits of a mutual prosperity between employers and unions.

    Corporate good citizenship seems to be an "exception" instead of the "rule"; too many show no concern for the well-being of this nation, her people or her environment.  The real "takers" in America are Corporatists and would-be Plutocrats who care for nothing BUT THEIR bottom line.
