  •  Where Did the Left's Values Oppose Labor? (1+ / 0-)

    Maybe integration of the workplace across race and gender.

    Otherwise while I saw often violent reaction of labor or workers against some of the left, I'm not so sure it was always sound. I don't see there was a good reason for labor to support the Vietnam war, or to oppose much of integration, beyond culture.

    Culture and identity did not "become added" they had to be meticulously fomented by the right because economically almost the entire bottom 90-95% of the country has most economic interests in common against the top end.

    After 2 generations unchallenged by Democratic Party intervention I don't know if conservative workers older than millennials can make the switch, but at least we've been given the first opening to bring them in since LBJ.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
