We are taught of the wealthy great men that were and continue to be builders of this country. This country is great due to their contributions which includes jobs for the masses. The article points out the falsehood of this teaching.
Since leaving high school, I have wondered how such a thing as precious and priceless as life was to spent working for the wealth of others. I realized very young that there was much more to life. There is much more on this planet to do than work. Yet we are to spend our most healthy years laboring for others. I realized that no matter how hard I worked, I would only receive the pay that my employers decided I should receive. Why was my precious life to be under the control of and to belong to others? What a waste of something so precious that was mine before leaving high school.
This article points out that these so called great men that built our country did not. These great men robbed from others and called there stolen properties America and American. The land was stolen. The wealth they have accumulated and what they have built was from the stolen labor and lives of others. The piece of paper they give workers is worthless; therefore the hours of work are stolen hours of life and energy. The piece of paper they give us for our labor is their creation and its superficial value under their control. Thus we are robbed as we build their wealth.
Stolen labor of the Chinese, Africans, Native Americans, poor Europeans, poor Americans and the vanishing middle class built America on stolen land from a people. The wealthy build nothing. They steal.
