The head of the current Nation of Islam is a proud anti-semite who is never called out by his female black followers who call him the best thing ever.

Antisemitism is popular among religious leaders

1914 Henry Ford astounds the world as he announces that he will pay a minimum wage of $5 a day and will share with employees $10 million in the previous year's profits.

I just learned this yesterday when I was watching a History Channel series "Men who built America." This was also the same time that Rockefeller, Chase, and the other major tycoons were paying their workers $1 a day, well below the poverty level.

Ford, well known for initiating the assembly line, had other positive effects such as introducing M-F work weeks and the 8 hour work day, both now standard, thanks to the efficiency of the assembly line.

Ford was a complicated guy. He was like the first Krupp, who gave his workers social security, housing, and medical care for life. In turn he demanded utter loyalty, no strikes, and hard work. Ford was ruthless toward strikers and his "Fordism" forced assembly line workers into robotic compliance. So kind of good and bad from both.

I've always wanted to. It's been way after hours every time I've made it though.

Yup. Even the social lives of Ford employees were scrutinized. So complicated is defiantly a term that describes Henry well.

Ford was a dick too. He was accused of having strikers killed, but never prosecuted. He did not want unions and demanded his employees not. If one did they were fired and he paid bounties to have employees rat on each other. Ford ruled the auto industry for a while and it was his own stubborness that allowed GM to grow strong and compete with him.

Anti-other religionism is essentially mandatory for any religion. It may not be discussed directly but you can't be religious without also believing everyone else is wrong.
