Hing Potter POLSCI 331 American Thought Yenor Sept. 27 th , 2011 A Report on Free Labor Man is always working to improve himself. Whether it is through the sweat of hard labor in the fields, by the greasy hands in the factory or through thought in the institution; it is safe to proclaim, that as humans, we strive for the better. In the quest to be more, we search for possessions; knowledge, character, talents and abilities and materials. Since the dawn days of Adam, we have grown to become the present looking towards the future, yet learning from the past. It is through this free labor that allows man to prosper and an obtain possessions of wealth and improve his workmanship. In free labor, Abraham Lincoln states that as a “sewing society” we have built a foundation of discoveries and inventions. Beginning with the days of Adam and his simple invention of the leaf loin cloth, we now have materials from all over the globe to serve the simple function of clothing our backs. Aside from the loggers and feeders, man is “the only one who improves his workmanship ( First Lecture on Discoveries and Inventions, Lincoln ). To expand, the discovery and the utilization of iron to accommodate farming also helped to broaden the knowledge of man as he invented the tools to grow seeds. Lincoln also refers to the subject of transportation throughout the history of civilization. Even though man is a land animal, this did not stop them from discovering the abilities to sit on a log and float the waves, just as the bird does. Man would wish to lessen the labor, while he might, at the same time, extend, and expedite the business ( First Lecture on Discoveries and Inventions, Lincoln ). Overall, it is through these select examples that man is able to implement free labor, the ability to discover and invent based on discoveries to progress the workmanship of man.
