The P.L.U Conference. Speaking at the opening of the Poli tical Labor League Conference, Mr. Holman warned the assembled dele cotes. afiainst-JJin-.-'-firebj^n'1''' '~ 'ITaiJor '' movement. For over twenty years, he said, the Labor movement in this State had fought for the success which it had achieved at the last elec tions, and though there wns a time ia the Labor movement when enthus iasm was essential, what was now needed was not enthusiasm so much as 'guidance, research and sound tkought.' Premier Holm an has one redeeming feature. He makes; no bones about his meaning. Now that Holman and Co. are on the safe and secure nlane of eco nomic independence, the unfortunate 'enthusiast,' who is getting deeper and deeper into the economic mire, is a stumbling block to their further am bitions, while they have not hesitated to make use of him in the past for their own personal advancement. It only requires now an upheaval such as we have witnessed in South Af rica to compel these gentry...

The Iron Heel in South Africa [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 31 January 1914

The Iron Heel in South Africa] The strikers in South Africa have met defeat, apparently, if the cables are to be believed. But, however that may be, the strike brings home several important lessons not alone to the working class of South Africa, but to that of tho civilised world. It drives Lome, stronger than all verbal argu wciits industrial unionists have given expression to during the past seven years, the absolute failure of craft organisation, eren where a strong Fed eration exists, to cope with the employ ing class and the methods to which they so ruthlessly resort, when a strike of this character is contemplated. Hero were the. rank and file of the workers ready and anxious for a gene ral .strike almost from the first mo ment that a section of the railway men ceased work ; and the fruitless efforts of craft org-'ni. s:\ti on was shown by the spectacle of craft after craft taking a ballot on Ilia question of a general strike, while the enemy utilised their services for the pu...

A Few Facts. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 31 January 1914

A Few Facts.     During the rcent elections in this country, both State and Federal, much dope has been ladled to the workers as to the marvellous in- crease in their prosperity for which Labour Governments have been responsible during the last few years. Statistics have been quoted show- ing a large increase in Savings Bank Deposits without regard to the in- crease in population in the same period, and without reference to the influence which the middle and low- er middle classes exercise on such statistics in a backwardly developed country like Australia. As the average working slave, who lives from week to week, very often on the credit which those same classes afford him, has listened to the politicians' loud talk about those   millions in the Savings Banks which testify to his prosperity, he must     have felt the incongruity between such statements and his own empty pockets. However, a few plain facts will throw ...

"Sabotage." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 31 January 1914

? -(Sabb|agc.'J \' Sabotage is a word whicli will f shortly find a place in the diction l aries of capitalist society, though it i^'is at present but little understood -?by those whom it chiefly concerns, mely tho working class; and for ?t very reason, of course, the capi _ sts are for the most part uncon cerned. A book is already in circulation ' which bears that word as its title, wrjtten by Emile Pouget, a French   l.\j^ralicalist, the English translation of which is published bv Charles H. Kew and Co., Chicago. In an intro duction. by Arturo Giovonitti of Lawrence strike fame, we are told that 'the book is not written for capitalists nor for the upholders of the captalists system., therefore it does not purpose to justify or excuse sabotage before the capitalist mind   and morals ; and indeed the fearless   exposition of the proletarian code of   ethics with regard to what our be   loved masters choose to call thei...

Editorial: WHERE WE STAND. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 31 January 1914

Editorial: WHERE WE STAND. We think we are safe in predict ing that this, the first issue of 'Di- rect Action,' will mark a new sge in the development of tho king class movement in Austra of that movement, a paper appears which stands for clear-cut, direct, action principles, unhampered, by the plausible theories of Parliamen tarians, whether 'revolutionary' or otherwise. We are therefore free from those handicaps which bind the   working-class aspirant for Parlia mentary 'honors,' who sees before him a safe and sure method of ad vancing his material interests, and consequently, since economic detcr minism is such a powerful factor,   cannot logically be blamed if he ad vances 'those interests quite regard less of the workers' wclfare. Our age-long tendency of putting   our trust in ''princes'' has been a most potent factor in our continued enslavement. Certainly, the members of the I.W.W. are out to better their material conditions, but their ...

I WON'T WORK. th whole product of my labor, and I do not want to be given to me by you or your benevolent State, either. I am out to take it, to expropriate it, to own and manage it in common with my fellow-workers. Under duress, driven by hunger and want, I may be compelled to slave in your industrial prisons. Grudgingly, unwillingly, I may have to sell you my labor-power, and sac --.-. ? .-or= auvti ui- your greed some grains of my energy. But my heart beating the war-song of the coming social battle, my brains, brimfull with the vision of the coming day, I deny you, masters of my bread.

No scientific management, no profit-sharing or state-capitalism schemes, products of your cowardly intellects, will open that source of life, loving creative, human energy, without which your whole system will crumble to dust, A day spent in your factories and workshops is a day wasted.

How capitalism Has Hypnotised Society [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 31 January 1914

Whenever and wherever intelligent mem bers of the working class express themselves morally or   ethically, whether in the demands of their unions or the literature of their organized movement, what they think or do is exactly described by the words 'justice,'   'brotherhood,' 'industrial freedom' — in one word: 'Revolution.' The clear, intelligent grasp of this fact is the first essential of all sound knowledge re   garding social or industrial questions. There are three revolutions in human society whicn we must ...

I Won't Work (By Starr E. Bounter, in Solidarity). There they are, the whole pack of them, the bloodhounds of the cap italist household : their noses close to the ground, their tongues lolling, falling over one another in their eagerness and zeal, they follow hot on the trail of the I.W.W. rebel in their war of extermination. Hideous is a master, brutal, in human is he who lives and fattens on the blood of his fellow-men, mons trous is he who wields the whip of want, and starvation over the bent backs of his brothers.
