Freedom for Whom? Part #1 By Bill Thompson In today’s world far too many Americans are working hard without any hope of advancing themselves or their families. They don’t have the advantage of inherited wealth and are simply trying to pay for the basic necessities of life, such as, potable water, food, shelter and clothes for their backs. The American dream of striving to succeed has been replaced with the hope of keeping “the man” from stripping away all sense of an individual’s dignity and putting families in the streets. As the gap widens between the rich and the poor, the possibility of restoring the American dream seems increasingly more improbable. The sense of discouragement has rippled through the consciousness of the American people and has crippled our democracy. Families are toiling to keep themselves afloat and not recognizing the vital importance of making demands of our legislators to establish policies that equalize opportunities for all citizens. Our executive branches have chosen to disregard the most basic purpose of our Constitution to preserve life, liberty and justice for all. The recent execution of Troy Davis is striking evidence of how extreme unjust laws are affecting poor Americans. It isn’t a far stretch to compare the life of today’s average citizen with the slaves, indentured servants and the coal industry laborers of the past. The working middle class can easily be recognized as the house slaves, while the workings poor and unemployed are the vermin-fied field slaves. A greater percentage of working American people have a net worth that slipped in to the red and are living a life of servitude to pay off predatory lenders; I would say that’s the equivalent of an indentured servant. As for the coal laborers of the past, they worked for coal barons that provided them with shantytown-like living quarters, paid them with company tokens that could only be used to make purchases in company stores. Often the pay didn’t equal the cost of the essential purchases made and the laborer became more indebted to the coal baron. In many cases, when a miner died their family inherited debt rather than riches. In today’s America we are working for conglomerates that don’t pay a commensurate rate for work performed while providing, at increasing inflated prices, the products and services that we require for everyday living. While the executive officers and high-end managers of these companies earn astronomical salaries and earn bonuses for keeping wealthy stock holders happy, many Americans are struggling to pay the bills and provide quality healthcare and education for their children. They have no hope of inheriting any substantial wealth from parents that have exhausted all savings to pay utilities, taxes, food and healthcare cost on a fixed income. Frequently middle-aged individuals are providing financial support to their children and parents simultaneously; extending credit lines to do so. Consequently, they are working harder for the coal baron and pay off their parent’s expenses. Maybe you can identify with these lyrics from Tennessee Ernie Ford’s
