Pack Mentality

One problem with labor unions is that they, by their very nature, encourage a pack mentality. We're all equal, we're all the same, and they, whoever they are, are the bad guys.

People will do things in a pack that they'd never do individually. Not only does the pack provide cover, it can whip emotions into a frenzy.

I hope there aren't too many union members proud of this video.

"But Darren, these are just a few guys out of millions of union members." When you can point me to violence conducted against union members by those of us who are non-union members, trying to get those guys out of the union, let me know.

By the way, does anyone know which public sector union is the most violent? I do.
