  1. “But perhaps the Occupy movement of 2011 and 2012 was only the first wave of a renewed social conscious- ness that could herald the revitalization of union organization across economic sectors. Let us hope that Budd’s call is widely heard.”

    I’m not sure people are willing to bet on unions as a savior in the face of accelerating change, yet they should see them as necessary in any civilized society, and especially in any top superpower. Workers’ rights are fundamental. But we won’t be the top superpower anymore if no one, including our unions, can or will stand up to outright stupidity and fraud. And if we go down, quite possibly the entire global economy and all of the workforces of the Earth will be ruled by inane corporate policy wonks. It will be an intellectual and social zombie apocalypse.
