I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

My Fellow Americans…

"Most poor folks are not on welfare, they work every day. They catch the early bus. They work every day.. . . They clean the streets. They cut the grass. They rake the leaves. They work hard every day. They raise other people's children. They work in hospi­tals. They mop the floors, and clean up the germs. They wipe the bodies of those who are sick with fever, rub their bodies down and when they get sick, they clean out their commodes." Jesse Jackson, 1988

"Our labor unions are not narrow , self-seeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours, and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and democracy to the shop floor." ---President John F. Kennedy 1962

"The trouble with the profit system has always been that it... is highly unprofitable to most people." E. B. White, 1944

"Labor, n., One of the processes by which A acquires property for B." The Devils Dictionary, A. Bierce, 1906

"The American people have the Constitutional right to be wrong" Warren Rudman 1987

"I believe in God and no more, and I hope for happiness beyond this life. I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in DOING JUSTICE, LOVING MERCY, and ENDEAVORING TO MAKE OUR FELLOW CREATURES HAPPY." Thomas Pain, Age of Reason, 1794.
