Talked about this and that with Jesse.

Ironically we don’t officially celebrate these great Americans workers who struggled and often died to bring us the 8 hour work week. This major chapter in history and the critical role these mostly socialist and anarchist heroes played in “making America great” is willfully suppressed in the education system. Again: without these revolts and strikes in the late 1800s, the US wouldn’t have become the industrial/technological powerhouse that it did. The crisis in which we are today is primarily due to reversing that and turning against the working people of America!
