Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Quality, control, and everyone lost in between.


Look around, people are already doing it - sabotaging their workplace, voting for morons, throwing trash all over the place, farting and blaming it on orphans. The state has no respect for us, and the state is us. Government is on the way to getting the people it deserves. Sharpen the pitchforks, you're gonna want to get a piece of this action.

Jeff Dorchen eats his hamburger and drinks his craft beer and considers a country in which the state has no obligation to provide quality services, a court system that has no obligation to find obligation to correct that, a political system with no obligations at all, and everyone else in the country - workers, pre-workers, post-workers - find themselves much obliged to take the blame every four years.
