Babylon. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Babylon. Ancient Babylonian law, written upon thousands of. bricks, and henceforth' to be read through all the ages, had some points about it that put most of the modern codes very much into the shade. There were three classes in the community top, middle and bottom; and an offence by the bottom dog was punished much .more lightly than if committed -by one tif the leading lights of-the 'uppah circle.' According to your chances in life your crimes were judged; and the aristocrat had to be something like a saint to keep on living at all, .while the middle-class person must walk warily. Outside true democracy; no system has ever approached that for sheer justice, and Baal Merodach, whose brazen image Nebuchadnezzar called all the world to worship, must have been worth worshipping while his priesthood could think and legislate like that. Another interesting law was the one referring to building*. The contractor was responsible for anything that hap pened to the dwelling house after it w...

Answers to Correspondents. i M.C., Mpruya.— 1. ''Bolshevik' is derived from two Rus [sian words meaning those holding {he view ' that if Socialism or Communism was to be ! successfully established they must adopt : a ? whole-hearted policy independent of ? Bourgeois (or middle class) interests or i assistannp. B In the Socialist Revolutionary organisa tion of twelve or fourteen years ago those holding these extreme views were termed 'Bolsheviki,' and the step-at-a-time fac tion was termed the 'Mensheviki.' When the Mensheviki were in a majority they decided to run Socialist candidates for the first Russian Duma, or Parliament.

Blobbs. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Blobfes. Now -Reginald Clarence Percival Blobbs. Imagined he had the surest of jobs; He had seen men come, and had seen men go, , Eut still he toiled on for Sweatem -and Co. Re the firm.'s business he'd nought to learn. He'd helped it grow to a giant concern, From his boyhood he'd served, so he felt sure, ? . i Though now growing old, his job was se cure. Attaining to manhood he'd taken a wife, And castles they'd built regarding their life. The natural sequence of married joy - Soon happened along, a cute baby boy. Soon came a girl, the next 4ot were two, For poof Mrs. Blobbs knew not what to do; Their castles all crashed as fears sped along, For soon the Blobbses were fully ten strong. Then Reginald felt the weight of dull care, A.nd thin streaks of grey appeared in his hair, His step grew less sprightly, his move ments slow, But still he toiled on for Sweatem and Co. But at length for poor Blobbs there came a day, When after receiving his scanty pay, Sweatem said: 'Reggie, for man...

Workers of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Workers of Australia. : By R BROOKFIELD, M.L.A, ; In an endeavor to defeat the Labor party the jCry Boisheyik has reached an hysterical stage.' The press, owned by the profiteers and their friends, have thrown all decency overboard and are in dulging in all sorts of fantastic lies and violent abuse. DO NOT BE MISLED. Don't let .the vicious statements of the profiteers and their satellites deceive you! The cent, per cent, patriots who took advantage of the. war to increase their private fortunes, are becoming alarmed at the thought of losing their ill-gotten, blood-stained profits. When the news papers emphasise the danger of Social ism it is to divert your thoughts while the profiteers exploit' you. WORKERS OF AUSTRALIA, the capi talists^are not patriots but inhuman pro fiteers; they are INTERNATIONAL ROBBERS. Their wealth has been amassed at the expense of the very lives of our soldier workers in France and Gallipoli. Their one idea is profits, and when we venture to 'claim the rig...

The Parson and the Bolshevik. (To the Editor, "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

The Parson and the Bolshevik. (To the Editor, '.Labor News.') 'Sir, — If our local parson held Labor views, he would make a fine organiser. He chimes up to you, talks of the wea jther, the 'flu, and not forgetting those ungodly Bolsheviks; gradually works round to asking you if you will come alcng to his church on Sunday. You will be real, welcome, he tells you, and he will have something special to tell the people. Last night I met him in one o'f our dog box carriages on the road home. The in evitable Bolshevik came up for discussion, and as I have had rather a fill of Churchi anity, I hoped to let the discussion get no further than Bolshevism. 'They are nothing more than a blood-thirsty, illiter ate mob,' he said. 'I do not deny that prior to the Revo lution the Russian peasant was illiterate,' I replied; 'so much so, that scarcely 5 per cent, could read or write. But don't you think 'now you are rather unfair in scoff ing at their illiteracy? Consider now! Was not Czarism solely ...

When We Put the Acid On. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

When We Put the Acid On. It i's: ''strange that while the militant always' has a bad time in his own coun try, even the moderate here has no time for the moderates in other lands. It is not Scheldeman and Ebert that we admire in Germany to-day, but Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxembourg. Not Samuel Gompers in America, but Eugene V. Debs. Not Barnes and Hodge in Brit ain, tmt Robert Smillie, Philip Snowden, John McLean, and the late Kelr Hardie. Not Kerensky or Lyoff in Russia, but Lenin and Trotsky. The Home Ruler In Ireland, while he was a fighter getting thrown out of Par liament and into jail, was beloved of the Irish people. When he became tame and moderate and started to eat out of the hand, they dropped him, and the Sinn Fein 'extremist'! has captured the coun try, and holds Ireland to-day because he is prepared to put up a scrap and risk a broken head if needs be. 1 The world loves an extremist, but gen- ; erally kills him out of stupidity, and only gets to understand him when h...

In the year 1914 the ruling class of the world went violently insane. Its madness and- blind fury con taminated the weak intellects of those iover-whora its rule was exercised, and whole nations became as mad as their; ~ rulers. The earth was made hideous with: iht deluge of blood that followed. The ' fair landscape was smeared with human flesh and -entrails and blasted and burned , 'with the fire and fury of a man-made , hell. Of all the mad orgies of a centuries old slave civilisation, this was by far the greatest, the grandest, the most over- ? wbelmiftgly magnificent spectacle of : ruling-class power and glory that was ? ever staged in all history. This outburst : of madness, of insane fury, was inter preted by some who were perhaps not so blind as the average as being the prelude , to the fin...

The Temple of Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

' The Temple of Labor. (By LOSSIE.) The most real things in life are not the tangible things we can see and touch, but they are the influences that make the spirit reverent and sweet and true, the glimpses we catch of the meaning of life, the conceptions that have left the trivial and have lost themselves in the immortal and the impersonal — the great motive powers that are felt throughout the ages. The passions, the ambitions, the yearn ings of men for something higher and better, are the most real things in the life of the people— nay, they are the throbbing, pulsating heart of life itself. Though so vital, so powerful, they are so fine and subtle that we are often un conscious of their presence. Yet, in the silent and lone places of life, in the times when we test our dreams and visions, whether they be in tune with the ultimate and the infinite, these real things ring out like some rare strain of sweet music that thrills, and soothes, and comforts. Were it not for the courage an...
