Property VS. Speech On US Campuses (w/Richard Wolff)

In discussion on The Zero Hour with RJ Eskow, Richard Wolff delves into the resurgence of labor movements and student activism, noting an increase in union organizing on campuses across the United States. Wolff reflects on the changing conditions in academia, particularly the exploitation of graduate students and adjunct professors who endure low wages and job insecurity, drawing parallels to an economic system that also supports foreign policies like those regarding Israel and Palestine. He emphasizes the historical importance of May Day, highlighting its connection to current struggles for labor rights and free speech. Wolff criticizes university administrations, such as Columbia's, for prioritizing property and financial interests over student expression and academic freedom. He concludes by expressing hope that the growing movements among workers and students are signaling a pivotal moment of challenge to established power structures.

    I came across the Ways2Well hormone optimization blog at a crucial time when I was trying to understand my health issues. The article was not only informative but also very reassuring, detailing how hormone levels impact overall well-being. It has inspired me to take a more proactive role in my healthcare. I highly recommend it to anyone facing similar issues.
