We can’t fool ourselves that they will ever be enough to overthrow Capitalism. If we’re serious about that we need to organise ourselves in our workplaces and communities, making the links with other workers internationally.

|Death:||31st August, 1800|
John Blair Jr. was born in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. He was an American Founding Father and associate justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1789-1795 (nominated by George Washington). He earned a BA degree from the College of William & Mary in 1754. In 1755, he went to London to study law at the Middle Temple. A famous legal scholar, he avoided the tumult of state politics, preferring to work behind the scenes. But he was devoted to the idea of a permanent union of the newly independent states and loyally supported fellow Virginians James Madison and George Washington at the Constitutional Convention. His greatest contribution as a Founding Father came not in Philadelphia, but later as a judge on the Virginia court of appeals and on the U.S. Supreme Court, where he influenced the interpretation of the Constitution in a number of important decisions.
