17,000 People of the Goodyear







Jane Dark calls it cognitive dissonance. Jane says, according to Time Magazine's Person of the Year award, individuals are gaining power over institutions. When one is simultaneously made aware that the US Army is threatening to force 17,000 striking laborers to return to work, it becomes clear that some individuals are not being honored with the same power as others to bring about change. Jane says Goodyear workers must not belong to the digital democracy (enough), especially when the manufactured goods in question are Humvee tires, whose incessant production is required for the US to continue its war efforts.
