This show of songs & comment explains truly and thrillingly what’s really
happening in the American economy today, and in the feelings of men & women!
THE PERFORMERS will show the meaning of the songs they sing—and of the economic battle going on in America now. This meaning, with all the current turmoil, is tremendously hopeful!
Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism, explained and enabled others to see what America is really asking for. He showed the grandeur of unions—and said:
“The most important thing in industry is the person who does the industry, which is the worker….Labor is the only source of wealth. There is no other source, except land, the raw material.”
And he explained: “Ethics is a force like electricity, steam, the atom—and will have its way.”
