The Knights of Labor (K of L)(officially "Noble and Holy Order of the Knights of Labor") was the largest and one of the most important American labor organizations of the 1880s. Its most important leader was Terence V. Powderly. The Knights promoted the social and cultural uplift of the workingman, rejected Socialism and radicalism, demanded the eight-hour day, and promoted the producers ethic of republicanism.

It is time for a labor movement in China!

People who are honest, and who work hard, must be rewarded with fair pay, and with good treatment, and when workers are paid fair then they can afford to participate in the world economy, which is good for our world economy.

Slavery is bad for everyone, and it is bad for our world economy.

And while the Chinese workers are fighting for fair pay, and for good treatment, they can fight for freedom, democracy, and for improved human rights, just like what happened with Lech Walesa and Poland.

All the best,

The Knights of Labor organization needs to be started up again, only GLOBALLY this time, a foundation has already been provided, and we can just pick up where Terence V. Powderly left off.

If the Knights of Labor organization were to be reborn, it would have to be better organized, and it would have to be global.

The Knights of Labor might need to start out as a secret organization in China while all of the plans are made, and while a labor movement in China is organized, and then once all of the plans are made, and once everything is organized, then the Knights of Labor can come out into the open, as was the case with the Knights of Labor in the USA.

Here are some very important questions that we should ask Mitt Romney...

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to take on the brutal communist regime in China in order to fix things?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to support a labor movement in China when the time comes?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to enforce our fair trade rules, and to help create new fair trade rules if needed for our survival and betterment?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to support FAIR trade instead of just free trade?

Does Mitt Romney have the balls to fight for the same environmental protection rules for everyone globally?

Mitt Romney has already stated that he will not borrow money from China, how hard will Mitt Romney fight to help to save and improve our world economy, and to help make our world a better place?

I would really love to hear Mitt Romney answer these questions live on television.

We must all support a labor movement in China when the time comes, just the same as we all supported Lech Walesa and Poland. Seriously.

Salute,

The workers of China need to form labor unions independent of the government, and they need to fight for fair pay and for good treatment for workers in China, and while they are at it they can fight for freedom, democracy, and for improved human rights, the same way that Lech Walesa and Poland did.

And workers at Foxconn who work for Apple need to form a union, and they need to fight for fair pay and for good treatment, etc etc etc.

China needs a labor movement NOW, and the Knights of Labor organization could help in China if started up again globally and in China.

Salute,

I had a roommate in Malibu who is the daughter of a general in communist China, and she too wants to see healthy evolution happen in China, as opposed to violent revolution, and we talked for hours and hours about how to help healthy, peaceful evolution to happen in China, and we agreed that it will take good people with wisdom and logic to help China to evolve peacefully. And a labor movement in China is the best way to help healthy, peaceful evolution to happen in China, as was the case with Lech Walesa and Poland.

All men are created equal, no man should be a slave for another man. All workers must be treated well, and all workers must be paid fairly.

People also need the freedom to dream, and they need the freedom to rise, and they need the freedom to do great things. And people need to have the right to pursue happiness.

Healthy, peaceful evolution is way better than violent revolution. There must be fairness and justice and freedom in order for there to be peace.

A Dream Deferred
by Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?
