Tennessee Ernie Ford – Sixteen Tons

This is the world the wealthy and republican idolize.   This is the world they want back and are fighting to recreate.  A world where profit for the wealthy is the most important thing, where corporations rule, and human lives mean nothing.  The want back a world where life was nothing but servitude, working from childhood to death to make large profits for a wealthy person.  No quality of life.  No luxury for in that time as it is getting to now simply being able to eat and have shelter is a luxury many cannot afford.   Go to work as young as possible, be used and when too broken to serve any use then to die.  Is that the way we think life should be?  Is that living?  Why bother if simply to survive is a struggle of the masses for the unending greed of those who are wealthy.   It doesn’t have to be this way!  It is not this way in most developed nations.   Look at the pictures, there are kids working in the mines and Arkansas just removed child labor laws.   We are racing to a past that we were barely able to escape once.  Hugs
