One reason that the labor movement has been so fragmented in the US compared to the rest of the world is because general strikes are specifically barred by US law. Specifically, the Taft-Hartley act of 1947 bans sympathy strikes:

Why is it that the majority of Americans lack the orientation (in the Boydian sense) to recognize that we are being ruthlessly exploited by a parasitic class of rentiers? It is because organizations that might otherwise develop such an orientation are forbidden by law from taking steps to do so.
