I just checked out the AFT website and the Sierra Club prominently advertises there. Take the “We Are One Pledge” here. In an e-mail Randi Weingarten was so kind to send me, she says that the Pledge is, “in support of fairness, justice, democracy and workers’ voice.” Give them credit, they know how to rally the troops. Far be it from me to ask them “what is justice, fairness, democracy and workers’ voices?” And for whom?
On a perhaps related note, I just reread Mill and like the following observation, “The impressiveness of an error is measured by the wisdom and virtue of him who falls into it.”
