Is It Time To Riot?


Harold Meyerson is understandably displeased by last night’s results. To his credit, he doesn’t sugarcoat the significance of Walker’s victory. But I thought this was an interesting way to end his piece:

Of course, as historian Fred Siegel, a leading opponent of public-sector unions, remarked to me many years ago (when he was still on the left), before unions, the common form of protest for workers seeking a better life was rioting. That may eventually prove to be the common form of protest after unions, too.

(Bonus: Meyerson trots out the “social Darwinism” charge again).
