According to the University of Missouri, violence in the answer when it comes to settling labor dispute. At least that’s what the college, which receives tens of millions of dollars from taxpayers, is teaching its students.
If you hit that link (or this link or this one), you’ll find a couple videos from two actual classes at the university wherein students learned how desirable threats and intimidation are as union negotiating tools. One of the instructors, a self-professed Communist and union leader, told students about the various tactics he’s used himself. Another teacher instructed students in ways to convince union members to subsume their own best interests for the best interests of the collective and a bit of advice from the Cloward-Piven “neo-liberal” book of tactics.
After you watch the indoctrination sessions — excuse me, approved college class lectures — you won’t much wonder why protests with heavy union involvement have been so violent lately and why other protests aren’t.
