This is exactly the proof of what I wrote. Because a few youthful anarchists remain IWW members, and recruit others who are similarly inclined, they arrogate to themselves undeserved glory, and in the process demean the true Wobbly legacy. The IWW continues to exist, as I wrote, but it has not shaped the culture of the insurgent U.S. proletariat since the 1920s.
