"Every man a king, so there would be no such thing as a man or woman who did not have the necessities of life, who would not be dependent upon the whims of the financial barons for a living." -Share Our Wealth, Huey Long (1934)


Every Man a King and Share Our Wealth-Two Huey Long Speeches by extraordinary Louisiana left-wing populist Huey Long includes:


- his 1934 radio address announcing the start of his "Share Our Wealth" Movement, promoting greater equality among Americans. By 1935 this movement had 27,000 chapters with 7.5 million members.

- Long's Statement on the Share Our Wealth Society in Congress (1935) with proposals, such as that "every family was to be furnished with a homestead allowance of not less than one-third the average family wealth of the country" and "yearly income cannot exceed more than 300 times the size of the average family income."


Long's radical agenda as expressed in Every Man a King and Share Our Wealth still offers food for thought for the social-economic debates of the 21st century.
