Thursday next, August 4, is the hnn* cti-edth anniversary of the~blf tH oTSbelley, who ranks with Burns among the great Radical poets of the century, tihelley was highly educated j Burns hardly ' educated' at all. Shelley wrote epios in classic Eng. lish; Burns wrote popular songs in the rough Scotch dialect. But both wrote for the people and both hated with all their hearts caste and privilege and wrong. Among Shelley e simplest and most stirring verses are the following, being part of the celebrated 'MASQUE OP ANARCHY:' ' Men of England, heirs of glory, Heroes of unwritten story, Nurslings of-one mighty mother, Hopes of her and one another ! 'Rise, like lions after slumber, In unvanquishable number ! Shake your chains to earth, like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you ! ' What is freedom ?

KARL MARX ON HENRY GEORGE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 July 1892

KARL MARX ON HENRY GEORGE. The following interesting letter written to a friend by Karl Marx, the father of economic socialism, has been published : London, June 20, 1881.— Before ' your copy of Henry George's book reached me, limit myself to a very short expression of opinion. In point or of theory the man is a back number. He has no mkHng of the nature of' Surplus Value. ' Following the example of English writers, but following even these far in the rear, he takes up his time with speculations upon the com ponent parbs of surplus value — upon profit, rent, interest, &c. His fundamental dogma is that ordnr wnnlri prgV-ail_iyJgfi-ffr'W»i- rent paid to the State. (You v.iil find allusions to that scheme in the Com munistic Manifesto among the transitional steps therein mentioned). ThiB theory originated with the bour geois or capitalist economists, Apart from similar propositions advanced towards the end of the 18th Century, it was first brought forth by the Radical followers...

Lumley Hill aud others v/ho write letters to the Brisbane dailies advocating the Griffily/raithian panacea for those hard times— reduced wages — fat ho&ses. make a lot of noise about certain bushinen who travel from station to station in the west looking for work ' on .fat liorscs.' The particular -point is-thst the animals are fat, but when you come- to look at the thing it is lilto Euclid's definition, only they dish it up in a catchy way. That the riders are thin and poor doeen't matte?. That they have to beg from placelcTplace for the privilege of exchanging their labour power for the noocasary -sustenance, or for food lo carry them on a little further in their quest, is a mere bagatelle. The horses are always iat. Strange— isn't it? — that the horses should be fat and the men poor. As if a poor horse could carry a man very far across those weary western stretches of country. Or is it because a man who may be hungry and thin has no right to...

[?] Lady Jeune, wife of the President of the English Divorce Court, thus talks of the rottenness of London society : Luxury, ease, comfort, are the watch words of a large part of society in London, and they are undermining 'our society as „ surely and as certainly as they did that of ancient Rome. It would be idle to deny Unas repenv scanoais in uonaon society, which hftva bafln thw talk hf ttia world, tunn ? the existence of which surprised and shocked the moral sense of England, are only the outcome and logical result of the easy-going manner in which women of the highest rank and culture have allowed the old-fashioned rules and restraints which governed society, to be relaxed.
