It is no secret that socialist/communists have used labor unions throughout the past 100+ years as a trojan horse to get their agenda implemented. We all know that Andy Stern, head of the SEIU union, is the most frequent guest at the White House.
Add to this the untenable position unions put many employers in. Our unionized manufacterers have in large part left the country, with a few exceptions. The outrageously expensive pension packages of the UAW is a big part of what bankrupted GM. They don't care, as long as they get theirs. Unions had their place when the robber barons and the like were luring workers to their company towns and keeping them as virtual slaves. But that time has long since passed and organized labor is being used as a tool to bring down our free enterprise system.And, finally, we have come to the last but not least important area: labor relations. I don't think I have to tell you about ideological infiltration of some labour unions in the USA. This is a well documented part of your history. Moscow ‘International Trade Union School,’ a KGB incubator for agents, takes care of physical infiltration of labor unions. And that is also well known (even to the CIA) in fact.
What I would like you to think about today is this: what sort of MORALITY it takes to make medical nurses leave sick and dying patients in hospital beds and walk out to strike for fifty cents an hour more in pay? OK, for a full DOLLAR more? What makes unionized electricians leave a city without power in the middle of a severe winter and let several children in “under privileged” slums freeze to DEATH? How desperate for money must a unionized truck driver be to SHOOT TO DEATH a strike-breaking colleague, father of five? Surely, each individual American, who commits these outrageously AMORAL acts is not that cruel and egocentric. And, let's face it, not THAT broke. So, why? My answer is-- IDEOLOGICAL DEMORALIZATION.
The bargaining process in American labor in many instances is no longer motivated by the desire to IMPROVE working conditions and wages. In many cases it is not bargaining at all-- it's blackmail. And in the process of the unlimited growth of union POWER, the American worker loses the only relevant and real freedom he has in his country: the freedom to choose, to work or not to work, and for how much. If an individual prefers to work for LOWER pay (and it must be his free individual choice), he often is no longer able to do so. I have just mentioned what happens to strike-breakers in America.
Also, to quickly summarize demoralization, I will say that it is the laying of the foundation before the big changes occur that will radically alter the society. The use of mass psychology and mass conditioning to get the population ready for a closed society and a command economy ensures that resistance will be kept to a minimum. Demoraliztion keeps the populace in the dark about what is happening. One person here might cling on the education issue, another the labor issue, another the usurpation of private property. But no one group, and surely not the entire population will be able to see the forest for the trees and will not be able to mount up a resistance to fight the overall plan. They'll just petition the parts that they notice that are wrong. As Yuri says, they'll just laugh at petitions once they've gained full power. Demoralization is just step one in the four step process; it contains many parts that work together in harmony to undermine every area of a free society. Next step: Destablization.
