    It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing.
    —Irving Mills (1894–1985)

    Prestige is the shadow of money and power. Where these are, there it is. Like the national market for soap or automobiles and the enlarged arena of federal power, the national cash-in area for prestige has grown, slowly being consolidated into a truly national system.
    —C. Wright Mills (1916–1962)

It is too much... ve stood it before because ve vere not organized. Now we have union... We must all stand together for union.
