The steps that first-generation leaders like Brown have taken are too small to meet the demands of the moment. Yes, Brown is standing up to President Trump, and yes, he’s done more than other governors have. But when it comes to climate change, it’s physics that we must measure ourselves against—and by that standard, we’re losing.
The holiday began as a strike against excessive workweeks but now bears little resemblance to its worker-centric origins, even as the founders’ gains are slowly lost.

Calls to reign in the excesses of capitalism; to better enforce laws; to increase oversight; to improve regulation. . . . This is a never-ending mostly centrist crusade to blunt the effects of a brutal and inhumane system that is functioning exactly as intended. The foundations of our system need to change profoundly and along with it what we call capitalism needs to be burned in the crucible of history. If such things as capitalism and industrialism were ever actually necessary in human progress they certainly are no longer and should be banished to the ages before we destroy ourselves, eyes wide open.
