Anti-Wage-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 569-571

The real "haves" are they who can acquire freedom, self-confidence, and even riches without depriving others of them. They acquire all of these by developing and applying their potentialities. On the other hand, the real "have nots" are they who cannot have aught except by depriving others of it. They can feel free only by diminishing the freedom of others, self-confident by spreading fear and dependence among others, and rich by making others poor.
Eric Hoffer

25,000 days

on this journey given
Take away the ones you’d like to forget
And if you count the days

you were just making a living
Well then you get down to it.
The Boomers

Anyone who thinks it’s legitimate to be a wage laborer is internalizing oppression in a way which would have seemed intolerable to people in the mills, lets say, a hundred and fifty years ago. So that’s again internalizing oppression, and it’s an achievement.
