Response to AFL-CIO

Washington politicos lack not only courage, but along with Labor “Leaders”, lack historical perspective.

We are in the decline phase of the Capitalist system. It is not cyclical phenomonon, it is dying, almost dead. So it is also that we have long passed, overshot, the limits of growth on a finite planet with finite resources.

If we have any hope to adjust, we must recognize these realities and overthrow the paper shackles of the puppets in DC. Labor leaders may be able to fill the void if they would adopt the radical perspective that challenges every given of the Divine Right of Kings/Divine Right of Corporations, Investment Banks, Banks, Bourgeoise Landlords and all the lackey politicians and media that follow in cue.

We need something completely different. A Peoples Equity Union dedicated to community betterment, meeting the needs of people in an inclusive, affordable, humane, equitable, artisan, sustainable, and peaceful manner.

We need a fundamental overhaul and reorganization of the economic system.

But without leadership, the idiots will get up tomorrow and do something all too similar to what they did today. Is it approaching nothing?

Get real, Trumka. Face the Dead Air, and get Radical, like REAL LABOR LEADERS OF THE PAST. It is our only hope.

In Peace, Friendwalkin’, Community, Cooperation, and Solidarity,

Mike Morin
Eugene, OR
Peoples’ Equity Union
