summer time

Summertime is passing by quickly and thank you for that. Soon it will be labor day that wonderful holiday immortalized in the movie with William Holden, Kim Novak, RosalindRussell
and Susan Strasberg. Labor Day a holiday dedicated to the worker and unions. In this era of unbridled greed by corporate interests it is a bit of an anachronism. As the rich become obscenely wealthy and the working class more oppressed I wonder if the fading middle-class have realized that their partnership with the conservative leadership and religions are the cause of their slide in to the grave. It seems that the middle class bourgeiouise attitudes in the end will destroy them. Their need to legislate conservative morality will in the end destroy any financial and class gains they and their ancestors have made. Already it is easier for a lower class person to enter the middle-class in Europe than America. The first time ever in history America is slipping the middle-class is losing ground and money quickly, while rich are becoming wealthier as the percentage of multi-millionaires are becoming billionaire and now trillionaire is the next goal for them.

The sad thing is that most americans believes all these billionaire are making wealth for society, but sadly this is not the case. The billions of dollars is coming into their pockets by paying slave wages, taking away benfits and salary packages that are a tiny step away from embezzlement of retirement funds of employees.

The silent movie Metropolis showed a bleak future. Now in the new millenium instead of Europe evolving into worker slavery it is America beating path to this future.
