This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922.

CHAPTER XXII The "Ford Ideals"--Would the Farmers Strike?--Who Is Their Boss?--The Politicians--The American Shop--"The Farmers Are Not Organized," They Say--What Would Be the Verdict of the People Should the Farmers Go On Strike?--Three Great Links, Agriculture, Transportation, Manufacturing--"To Starve People of the Cities"--Farmers Never Have Struck--All Industry Linked With Fanning--The Farmer Is Priest of the Soil--A Strike Is War and War Is Unnecessary--All Industry Linked With Farming--Candidates Don't Always Know Who Their Real Masters Are--The American Way Grows Out of Ideas, Not Violence.

Which shows how little they are informed. It was at a national meeting of the organized farmers of the United States--The National Grange, the P...
