Does anyone else feel like we really need art showing people come and work together to change things? It seems like for the past century or so, we've been deathly afraid of anything that hints at revolution. :/

@Angle Familiar with the bloodier side of the industrial revolution at all? e.g. organized coal miners being wiped out by Pinkertons et al; strikebusting including federal involvement; and more recently the MOVE bombing? The arson of Black Wall Street? And given the findings of the Church Commission back in the day one has to wonder what was really going on those times the FBI exterminated a group of domestic "extremists" who seemed peaceful
