The fact that some people ended up in 'slavery' is not a ringing endorsement for unions so much as it is a ringing endorsement for universal armament of the populace. In Karl Marx' fabled village everyone would be armed and able to leave if the gov't (village council) was oppressive. Of course Marx conveniently ignores the fact that primitive villages were in fact families. He also ignores many other facts of life and leads people on a primrose path of believing that bedrock facts of life that will kill you can in fact be ignored.

Perhaps it was the radio segment that I did this week asking for comments and feedback about unions. I asked on the air for people who were union members to call our listener line at 202-681-1732 or email us at

I was looking for comments about the good and bad that goes along with being represented by unions.

Still looking for comments, and now want them even if you don't have a union.  

Personally I think unions are outdated relics of an age that belong more to Stalin than to Dickens.

Or maybe it was the Facebook picture I posted...
