Quote: Samuel Gompers

“Labor wants more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures.”
Labor leader Samuel Gompers, 1893, via my dad, William Schmelzer

I love that, except for one thing: there is no 'greed' in capitalism, only 'profit' and 'regulation'.
