Her flowery speech here is the moral justification she has constructed in her mind to sooth her conscience. Her moral premise is that they should have banded together and fought the system, therefore they share full culpability for the deficits of the system under which they labor.

if not, the court room will be waiting to hold nurses responsible for patient neglect. [/quote
so nurses are neglecting their patients? this is because we don't stand together?
you have a very interesting outlook on things here. i'd love to hear more from you.
