    While many people in SC are reluctant to join Unions, they are increasingly aware that they're being cheated at work.  Public reaction at recent demonstrations here has been more positive than at any time in the past.  However, people in SC prefer to organize themselves around established authority figures on a model derived from a military orgnaization or plantation.  Most aren't comfortable with free speech or democracy.

    This historic and cultural origins of this are complex and have already filled books.
