Emma Goldman: One cool Broad

On my GRE Verbal section there was a passage about the Knights of Labor, which described how trades divided from what was considered “less skilled workers”. This was what eventually broke KOL apart. It does seem that the parties that be are using certain issues to divide us. We need something to unite us, something that will make us look past our differences to see they are illusions.

I read Daisy’s latest post on Ferguson, and I too have many feelings about the election and what is happening around the country. She is right. Not expanding medicaid in southern states will result in deaths. I wonder what else it will result in….bankruptsy, homelessness, and other things that will affect peoples’ economic security.

That’s why I am going to begin to play Coopoly. I will report back to let you know how it goes.
