HARVESTERS! [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
HARVESTERS' Members striking out for the harvest fields should arm themselves with a supply of Subscription Cards for 'Direct Action.' Don't miss such a splendid opportunity for Propoganda. Push the sale of 'Direct Action.' The boss loves it. Since 1905 the purchasing power of the sovereign has decreased from twenty shillings to eleven aud ten pence. Verily, 'the poor are getting richer. ' ' The power and strength of labor is measured, not by the number of Labor ites in Parliament, but by the atatc of the working stiff 's cupboard. * # » DEFENCE FUND.

The Devil's Imps. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
The DeviPs Imps. A correspondent from Wellington (N.S.W.) informs i:s thai a religious maniac named Kiluer is giving the I.W.W. a great boost up that way. It appears that, like another religious fanatic, Kaiser Wilhelm II., Kilner is frequently in receipt of messages from the Almighty. He informs the astonish ed inhabitants of Wellington, most of whom never heard of the J.W.W. previ ously in their lives, that his latest com ;.jUun..auuu uy wireiess was that 'all J.W.W. 's were (he Devil's Iiiips! ' 'It seems, according to this lunatic,'' says our correspondent, 'that the .1. W.W. will be the means whereby the Devil will endeavour to thwart the will of God when Christ makes his appear ance on this earth again.' As 'God' was the first ruler and the first tyrant of whom we have any ac curate (?) knowledge, and the Devil the first Kebel, there may be something in Kilner 's idea after all. Why the Almighty ciiose the inhabi tants of Wellington as the first to hear this strange announceme...
Our Rulers. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
Our Rulers. The people who ruiu us never fail to take the plums of o/lice, hut, of course, that is not their object when they ask us io elect them as our rulers. We are always pursuing that Will-o '-the-Wisp, Liberty, even to Parliaments, where it mysteriously disappears, to again re .?ippear elsewhere. Promises are but a drossy shadow, action brings a golden result, vide the Welsh Coalminers' Strike in England. The fly in the oint ment is its disloyalty at the present crisis. So sayetn the 'Argoose' and other aged geese. To those who slave daily for an existence it matters not whether kings or presidents rule, Lib eral rooks or Labor crooks make laws to free them from further slavery. Their liberty lies in a full stomach and the right to work to fill it. Between rulers of all nations there is an unseen band of mutual interests. To please the ruled, at periods they put up a stage fight, but the morning after the night before, when results have been made known, it is ' business as us...

One Big Union—Forerunner Of The Co-operative Commonwealth. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
One Big Union-Forerunner Of The Co-operative Commonwealth. The human raee advanced from savagery to its present com plex social organisation by conquering its natural environment Hud by Die creation of artificial conditions and environments' This power to create for himself artificial environments is the ihing which serves to sharply differentiate man from the lower forms of animal life, which, when their environment becomes un favorable, disappear, and are replaced by others equipped to func tion under changed conditions. Progress began by a conquest over nature and the develon ment of those industrial arts which serve to satisfy the fundamen tal material wants of the race. The most influential of these arti iiciai conditions created at an early stage, of development was the institution of private property. The stronger or more cunning men by appropriating to themselves at first the land and its increments, and later the tools of production, became the rulers of the race, and at ce...

FREEDOM AT ANY PRICE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
FREEDOM AT ANY PRICE. Even as our actions are determined more by our emotions than by our rea son, so must our efforts for freedom be determined more by expediency than any considerations of legality or jus tice. As, in homely phrase, it is neces sary to fight the devil with his own weapons, so must reformers be prepar ed to put aside such of our present morality as stands in the way of pro gress toward better conditions for the enslaved multitude. Deplorable as it is, we must adopt the casuistry of the Jesuit, who claims that the end justi nes the means. INaturally, there arises the thought of the dangerous reactive effects upon the mind of the worker, resulting from the deliberate perform ance of immoral actions, but, real as this danger is, it is better to chance the risk involved than to let anything stand iu the way of possible advance ment, since no imaginable conditions can be worse than those of the present, for human nature can contain no more evil than is exhibited in the ...

Economics of Labor [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 2 October 1915
Economics of Labor ? c There are three conditions upon which the capitalist will employ labor: Firstly, that he produces the amount he is to receive, and before he receives it; secondly, that he provides new ma chines for those worn out in the pro cess of production; thirdly, that he creates a surplus for the caDitalist. Thus, the work-day is divided into two parts — necessary labor and surplus la bor. The former is the time necessary to produce the equivalent in commo dities of the money required to buy back the necessaries of life, and to re pair the depreciation in value of the machines. The latter, generally the biggest part of the day, is devoted to the creation of the profits which are appropriated by the employing class as their rightful share. The necessary labor time is always decreasing, owing to the introduction of newer and more modern machines, by greater efficiency of the workers, and by the use of cheap female and child labor. But, on -the other hand, the sur plus lab...

I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 9 October 1915
I. W.W. Preamble. ? Q ? i The -working class and the employing class have nothing iu I common. Thex*e can be no peace so long as hunger and want are 1 found among millions of working people^ and the few who make 1 up the employing class have all the good things of life. I Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the I workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the I earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage I system'. ' I 'We find that the centreing of the management of industries into h fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with K tlie ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions ? foster a state, of affairs which allows one set of workers to be H pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby B helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade H unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the beher H that the working-class have interests in common...
