Scent of a liberal

Robert Reich, Financial Times:

If Washington knew what was good for it and the nation, it would sever its financial connections with Wall Street.

Yes: And if I knew what was good for me and my family, I would sever financial connections to my boss, who in no way reciprocates the kind of consideration we show him on a daily basis.

Why this is not a realistic course of action is best explained by the nature of the relationship, not any question of knowing what is good for us.

I got paperwork at my job today reminding me that either I or my employer are free to terminate my employment at any time, with or without notice, for any reason. I don't see any kind of power differential there, do you?
