When did you have that first conversation about work ethics that dove into the plight of the common worker and those terrible rich business owners? Mine was as a young lad sitting on the periphery as my father, his two brothers and a couple of friends sat around playing poker. It was in the early 60’s when the height of the labor vs. management was raging through much of the industries and trades in the United States. The conversations at the card table could become pretty heated since there was an uneven split between the players of corporate/management types (two) and labor/union types (three).

How did I come up with the idea that the Christian Churches in the 19th and early 20th Centuries contribute to the push for the direct election of the Senator. The historical perspective of the time is laid out in this program.

Ask yourself these questions, and more importantly, get the answers!
1. When did Marx release the communist manifesto?
2. Who was Henry George and what influence did he have not only in the US but in England?
3. What is the social gospel in comparison to the Reformation Gospel of the Founders of America?
Those are three questions that will get some thoughts coordinating with today’s program.
Enjoy this challenge perspective and consider the solution provided for the restoration of the Republic!
