You know how MSNBC claimed that calling someone a “hard worker” was “demeaning to slaves?” Mike Rowe had a few things to say about it…
First of all, slavery is not “hard work;” it’s forced labor. There’s a big difference. Likewise, slaves are not workers; they are by definition, property. They have no freedom, no hope, and no rights. Yes, they work hard, obviously. But there can be no “work ethic” among slaves, because the slave has no choice in the matter.
Workers on the other hand, have free will. They are free to work as hard as they wish. Or not. The choice is theirs. And their decision to work hard, or not, is not a function of compliance or coercion; it’s a reflection of character and ambition.
He then really tore in to the allover leftist work “ethic.” Read for yourself. It’s worth the time.
