UNIONISM & CO-OPERATIVE COMMUNES TO THE EDITOR OF THE WORKER: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 31 December 1892

UNIONISM & CO-OPERATIVE COMMUNES TO THE EDITOR OF THE WORKER : The great German general, Von Moltke, once said, ' God is on the side of the big battalions.' It is equally true to say that ' Law is on the side of the big moneyoap?': All experience tends to prove that capital is invincible while unionism never departs from the old ruts. The great value of New Unionism to the worker, the tremendous force that it will wield in the future, con sists mainlv in this— that it fnllnwa nn stereotyped policy, but is ever ready to avail itself of any weapon, industrial or political, which makes for the emancipa tion of Labour.
