Job 31:13 - 15

I used this blog on Friday as a dump some some of my thoughts on a chapter of my forthcoming book that will discuss labor unions, i.e. collective bargaining.  Now I will follow that up on this Sunday with a potentially pertinent Bible passage, from the 31st chapter of the Book of Job.

King James version:

"If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant, when they contended with me; What then shall I do when God riseth up? what shall I answer him? Did not He that made me in the womb make him? and did not One fashion us in the womb?"

You, Mr. Hard-ass employer, may have to answer to a Higher Authority.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
