“Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration,” by Abraham Lincoln.
Do you ever wonder what some of our past Presidents would say about things if they visited today. Sometimes I do. What would they think if they walked down our streets? Would they see progress in humanity, business and society? To what degree?
I am sure they would be astounded at the technology we have today and what it does to advance man-kind.
But I think they would also be disappointed that we have let some of the values held dear to them no longer matter to us. I feel quite certain they would have a great deal of questions. I think it would be a marvelous thing to sit down with a group of these past presidents and answer the questions they would have.
Wonder what questions they would ask Congress, Supreme courts-state, federal, CEOs, Bank Presidents, Doctors, Hospitals, the list could go on and on. What questions would they ask us-the people?
I would like to sit in on that meeting, not just to hear their questions, but I would most definitely like to hear the answers.
Each segment of history passes the torch to the next one, and so on. Do we stretch ourselves to do our best, to take us further–in the right direction?
