Never forget what happens when government and corporate oligarchs merge. This photo, taken a few days ago, is not of a forgotten World War I battlefield. It is on Cabin Creek, West Virginia. From this machine gun nest, or “pillbox,” corporate employees fired automatic weapons at coal miners, their wives, and children for the capital offense of trying to join the union. This was done with the full knowledge and blessing of the government. With the Mountain State’s recent “Right to Work” legislation, the corporate oligarchy soils the memory of our ancestors.
