  • A USA Folk Hero
  • Thus Both
    • An ideal/hero
    • And for many then and now: an Everyman
  • Sometimes intrpreted as an anti technology sentiment
    • Many of the criticisms can be summed up as:
      • Steam Engines Blew Up FREQUENTLY pre-overpressure valves etc
      • Steam engines were bought for profit, not FLOSFALQASP (ie robber baron vs ose's endgame, thus a False Equivalence
  • More so on the Treatment of the Worker (it was from industrializing usa where workers were expendable toolheads not people (and many are to this day) )
  • Thus a pre-existing, good (albeit good), and fun/goofy rhythm song
  • Thus a great thing for yell singing at a bar and/or protest
