It being Labor Day, let’s hear a quote about Labor so manifestly true and so radical that it sounds like it came from Occupy.
“Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. “
Sounds like this quote came from Marx or some other bearded madman. Which leftist leader is it? Which egghead socialist, which collectivist, which anti-American rabble rouser? Scroll down for the answer.
It’s the guy on the five dollar bill.
Happy Labor Day.
