16 Tons - Sung by Timothy Lynch, Bennett Cooperman, and Kevin Fennell

This song was performed at the Teamster Womens Conference.  I had liked 16 Tons, but I hadn't really listened to the lyrics and seen the real meaning of it.  In the comment to it we see how the ill will of profit economics is at the heart of it and what Aesthetic Realism explains: that the basis of profit economics--contempt for people--can no longer work in the world.

Here is 16 Tons, sung by members of the Aesthetic Realism Theatre Co.
