The problem facing our people here in America is bigger than all other personal or organizational differences.

When national Leaders address the people of Fiji in specifically Christian terms, whatever the occasion, nearly half of our people are excluded. When prayer in mixed company is uttered in terms of a purely Christian God, we unintentionally omit and diminish others present of different faiths.

In contrast to the asexual chasteness of official communist art , Nazi art is both prurient and idealizing. A utopian aesthetics (physical perfection; identity as a biological given) implies an ideal eroticism: sexuality converted into the magnetism of Leaders and the joy of followers. The fascist ideal is to transform sexual energy into a "spiritual" force, for the benefit of the community.Susan Sontag

Once capitalist classes learn to live with unions which they generally do reluctantly, only after efforts to crush them have failed they then attempt to co-opt organized labour.
