Another totally suppressed, forgotten American dream
"I don't think that I presented any Utopian ideas. I talked for the necessities of life, food, clothing, shelter and amusement. We can talk of Utopia afterwards ...I have had a dream that I have in the morning and at night and during the day, that is that there will be a new society sometime in which there will be no battle between capitalist and wage earner ... there will be no political government ... but ... experts will come together for the purpose of discussing the welfare of all the people and discussing the means by which the machinery can be made the slave of the people isntead of a part of the people being made the salve of machinery ... -- Big Bill Haywood, in We shall be all, Melvin Dubofsky, 1969, pp. 155-156.
