Socialism for the Rich, Capitalism for the Poor


May Day is recognized as a workers’ holiday in 66 nations but not in the USA. In America, May Day has been too closely associated with communism and labor unions and so, from the 1950’s, there has been an attempt to play it down and mask it behind the false holiday of “law day,” which only a few will have ever heard of. But, in light of the income disparity that threatens to undermine both capitalism and democracy, it is time for progressives to take another look at the Haymarket Riot and the events that make May Day worth remembering.
These progressive sermons are available as podcasts at iTunes.
