PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?
Capitalist Exploitation

William Brown – Folk Song

 
Capitalist Exploitation
William Brown
 
 
Chorus: Keep that wheel a turning (x3) And do a little more each way
 
1. A nice young man was William Brown, He worked for a wage in a northern town
He worked from six ‘til eight at night, Turning a wheel from left to right.
 
2. The boss one day to William came, And said ‘Look here young what’s your name!
We’re not content with what you do, so turn a little harder or out you go.
 
3. So William turned and made her run, Three times round in the place of one,
He turned so hard he soon was made Lord High turner of the trade.
 
4. William turned with the same sweet smile, The goods he made grew such a pile, 
They filled the room and the room next door, And over flowed in the basement floor
 
5. The nation heard the wondrous tale, The news appeared in the Sketch and Mail, 
The railways ran excursions down, All to see young William Brown
 
 
6. But sad the sequel is to tell, He turned out more than the boss could sell
The markets slumped and the price went down, seven more days and they sacked young Brown
 
: The moral of the tale is plain to tell: 
If you wanna lose yer job, just work like hell.
 
Fast chorus
