Nice piece, but a couple of points…
“…or the right of the people peaceably to assemble...”
“…Stripping public workers of their right to peaceably assemble as a union…”
I suppose I’m taking the words too literally, but very few protests, no matter the political persuasion, are peaceable, with all the chanting, speakers with bullhorns or p.a. systems and the screaming at those protesting with an opposite view point.
“…Colonists were protesting that, without their say-so, a tax was being levied on them to bail out the British East India Corporation…”
Isn’t a union demanding higher and higher compensation packages for their members effectively levying a tax (increase) on the tax-payers, without their say so?
