The union-busting billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch, are right now shaping the union-busters of the future through their Koch Associate Program. Check out this informational video on the one-year Koch program. See if you can understand what it is they actually do. Here’s how one program manager describes it:

Our long-term vision is to have folks engaged in roles that contribute to the advancement of what we call the science of liberty.

Just what do they mean by “science of liberty”? The Kochs fund a vast propaganda network. Does “liberty” mean buying politicians like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker so they can strip workers of their collective bargaining rights.
