"Classical liberals are used to being the 'odd one out' but how many of us have lived through a strike with its demands for 'solidarity?' I believe in voluntary association and even joined the Faculty Association (union) some years ago. I also believe that workers may strike but they are not entitled to a closed shop via 'fair share' fees. If they strike, they may be replaced. A strike ought to be an act of desperation, carefully thought through." (11/13/11)
