The Masses and Their Glorious Freedom. (A. Mack.) [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 October 1915

The Masses and Their GIopous Freedom. (A. Mack.) 'What is Freedom? — Ye can tell That which slavery is, too well — For its very name has grown To an echo of your own.' —Shelley. Since Europe set out upon its mad crusade of blood and democracy a yoiir a^o. no word has been mouthed more often nor uttered with more soul-stirring hypocrisy, both by the master claps and their stupid, ser vile wage-slaves, than that word 'Freedom.' The workers of Australia speak the word with great reverence, and with sickening regularity it is hurled forth as an excuse for the war crime in the Old World. Yet, if we except the militants of the working-class, and these number not more than 10 per cent., one cannot but be convinced that the rest of labor's army could be thrown bacjk to the verge of chattel slavery and worked in chain gangs without a whisper of discontent arising from the apparently seething, soulless mass of servility. The fact, that the energetic and progressive members of the class can be...

The Preamble [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915

The Preamble The workingr-class and the employ ing-class have nothing in common. There . can be no peace so long- as hunger and want are found among' millions of working- people, and the few who make up the employingr-class have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world orgranise as a class, take pos session of the earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wagre system. We rind that the centreing- of the management of industries into fewer and lewer hands makes the trade unions unable vo cope with the ever growing power of the employing-class. J nc trade unions roster a state o; affairs which allows one set of workeis to be p.tted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereto helping- to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid ihe cmpioyiuff-class to mislead the workers into the belief that the work ing-class have interests in common with their employers. These condi...

A Weekly "Direct Action!" Industrial Unionism The Source of Working-Class Power. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915

A Weekly ' Direct Action ! ' Industrial Unionism The Source of Working-Class Power. The economic relations of a people do not change with forms of govern ment. This is a simple statement of fact, but, like many other simple truths, its importance is not fully realised by the working class. If it were otherwise, they could not so easily be duped by patriotic cries and national jealousies. Wars have never changed the eco victors or vanquished. Rome triumphed over weaker nations and established a world-wide Empire, but under Roman rule there were still masters and slaves, exploiter and exploited, worker and shirker, producer and parasite. The Roman Empire disappeared. Europe has seen many wars since then. There have been empires and king doms, republics and confederacies, 'good' kings and bad rjueciis, Czars, Kaisers and Dictators, but the relation ship existing between the masses and the classes on the continent of Europe has not fundamentally altered. Yet, how often one hears the rem...

Political Parasites And Other Intellectual Prostitutes. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915

Political Parasites And Other Intellectual Prostitutes. By IS. MeLouglilhi. Since the advent of the Labor Party into the political arena, the working class of Australia lias lost all spirit or sell' -reliance, aud seldom or ever act on their own initiative, but depend wholly and solely on their political fakirs to right the wrongs, to allevi ate the- distress, to ensure for them more employment, and raise them t*- a standard of self-respect and common decency. But what do we find? With Labor Governments in five States out ui »u, «mu itisu lue, C0S1W01 OI DOXS1 Houses in the Federal Parliament, we have poverty, high prices, unemploy ment, bhe gravitated towards tne haggard want, and eveiy othei- vice and evil that confronts the working class in every land beneath the sun.
