Union Power

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

—Lord Acton


Labor Day weekend is nearly upon us, and teachers unions are using their death grip on the public school system to keep schools closed, despite the best interests of children, parents, American society, and perhaps even teachers.

And the unions continue to press their current advantage in the face of mounting scientific evidence supporting a return to in-person instruction. They might do well to remember Newton’s Third Law of Motion: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action.”

In this context—the ongoing farce of “distance learning”—two videos from CRC alumnus Dr. Steven J. Allen are illuminating in explaining how we got here.
