33. Yup, I'm too militant.
Here's a quote from Barbara Ehrenreich:

p. 221 "Someday, of course, --and I will make no predictions as to exactly when--they are bound to tire of getting so little in return and to demand to be paid what they're worth. There'll be a lot of anger when that day comes, and strikes and disruption. But the sky will not fall, and we will all be better off for it in the end."

People will blast me for my strong words, and dismiss what I'm saying. And, then, the fury of the people will eventually erupt, and they'll say, "But we didn't know....."

Whine.

You see, our suffering means little.

It's *WE* who are making *THEM* uncomfortable.

Poor dears.

:(
