Echoes of History

In 1932 a new president came to office, and there was an attempt to grab power from him via a coup. It was never as realized as the present assault on January 6. That president was seen as a clear and present danger to the corporations of his age. And they did what they could to slow things like the implementation of the social services, or the Works Progress Administration. Don’t get me started on social security and the minimum wage.

All these, to a one, were referred as radical, and communist. In fact, the GOP has been fighting these initiatives for over seventy years.
