Phil Taylor and Phil Conlon discuss how the meaning and practice of Labour Day has been corrupted: Going from a celebration of internationalism of workers who saw themselves as part of humanity and anti-militarism to celebration of military air shows and a ritual of pretending to care about those who fell in the past.

Phil Conlon reads Joe Fiorito's satirical column, "It's time to end the celebration of death and kill the airshow."

Taylor also praises and summarizes Ishmael Reed's article "Bad Apples in Ferguson," which emphasizes police brutality is not just against blacks, but against a rainbow of minority colors, esp. Native Americans, Latinos and Muslims. Reed says that the statistics in polls should reflect this reality.
It’s time to end the celebration of death and kill the airshow: Fiorito

The annual CNE spectacle amounts to a display of noisy voyeurism that has outlived its usefulness.
