Thought for Today

“The rich were getting richer, the poor were getting poorer, small farmers were being squeezed out, workingmen were working twelve hours a day for a bare living; profits were for the rich, the law was for the rich, the cops were for the rich; was it for that the pilgrims had bent their heads into the storm, filled the fleeing Indians with slugs out of their blunderbusses and worked the stony farms of New England…”

—John Dos Passos, in the novel 1919 (written in 1932)
