What the War has not Changed. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

What the War has not Changed. 'The war has changed all that ' is a i'mpieut expression in tho capitalist press of late. It is generally used on occasion* when a soon on oi'the workers make some demand to main lain the standard of living existing in pre war days. From the same source we are informed from time to time thai labor con ditions after the war must inevitably grow worso in view of the 'depression' which is IJOU11U I/O SBL- 111. The press is always ready with plausible reasons for working-class poverty- When war is on it is — well, just the war. In peace, if. is 'depression,' 'bad times, '' 'lack of capital,' etc. These and similar shibboleths *-.re given to us in different- guises by 'our' political economists, are repeated parrot-like by Union leaders and Labor politicians,, Mild in time, well interspersed with prole tarian oaths, they become indubitable coni ,? mon-places to the wage-slave vainly search V ing for a job. The press and the. real of our mentors are very care...

Ballad of the Agitator [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

Ballad of the Agitator By A. HOLDS WORTH. You shall read the scroll of our lives, red-writ, On the night black walls of pain; You shall trace our trails by the gibbet nosis— Fair memorials of our slain; Where the whited bones, Jn dark undertones, Still defy the accursed chain. in ihe silent north, where the pinewoods sleep Till they shudder, reel, and crash; Where the miser mountains their hoards reveal At the torrents threat and thrash; \\'c unfurled the ting — Yes, tin; old red nig'. In defiance of law and lash. Wo obeyed the tall of that siren-west, iier deceits we made them plain; For her lovely eyus o'er the skyline peep, And her lips are sought in vain. But we sowed the seed, ],! ihe hour of need, And the slaves will reap the gain. We arc known where, coral and palm creep out From the sun-white, glaring sand; We have camped outback in the deadly heat of Oi' the Nevcr-Ncvcr land; Be it kauri pine, Uc ii sea-deep mine, We. have battled hand to hand. We have shown our hand in the...

THE KAISER A SOCIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 29 April 1916

-- THE KAISER A SOCIALIST. ? As- prophesied by the prophets of all time the' millenium is at hand. Hunger and want are no longer going to stroll hand in hand with misery, bloodshed and travail; grim and gaunt starvation will be consigned to the deepest pit of the' deepest hell that posterity can dis cover. Joy and love, full and plenty, will emerge from the nocturnal gloom of a buried past, and all will -be happy, happy iim^ li iiiii-Jiiifil l on ivh4nn Kii ?f-.li Mi n- ii-i + li r\ tva /-lit it Jin i iuticuii luu^mti , udLiiuii; in lii\3 giui ions sunshine that will light and make smile every nook and corner in. our boun tiful future. The Kaiser has been converted to soci alism. The 'Sun' of Sunday, 23rd inst, con tained an interesting note to this effect. At a private audience with the socialist leaders he is reported to have said that he was not -a deadly foe of Marxism, and had not assailed socialist economics, hut had censored anti-patriotism in Germany. He said that he was lea...

CONCERNING CARTOONS AND RIDICULE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 29 April 1916

CONCERNING CARTOONS AND RIDICULE. The master class are most insidious and cunning in their methods of class warfare.. Every human instinct and passion and art is used by them to defeat and fool the wor kers. Ever fcince the human race has evolved the faculty of speech, ridicule or abuse has been used, even by the must primitive. In iact, philologists inform us that invecti-re is amongst the earliest form of speech, and is generally very effective. ; As soon as the human race attained any ' J J degree of culture, men of artistic, and liter- |) h aiy genius haA'e used ridicule and satire in j- various ways. Euripides, the ancient Greek playwriter, used to cast, contumely upon the ' ' -i gods, much to the discomfiture of orthodoxy. I Aristophanes, another Greek, used 1o ridi- ;? '' '?? cule all and sundry. Voltaire, with his g .,, J-i powerful writings and his use of ridicule and i-U;'i|( satire, broke the power of the priest craft in France.

TRADES HALL FATUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 29 April 1916

TRADES HALL FATUITY. At a meeting of the State Executive n* Ihe A.L.F., the W.A. 'Worker,' of April 7. reports as following: — Mr. (!. Dennis asked how unionists were to get an;.- advantage except by slowing down. After five years of Labor Govern ment they had not got better wages, and they must strive for easier conditions. Mr. A. McCnllum : 'Your theorv is on posed to all my reading- of economics.' Just so; now Mr. McCullum is General Secretary for the Trades Hall, Perth, an official who draws just about eight pounds a week from different A.L.F. J Councils, and he is so obviously ignorant of econom ics and the class struggle, that he doesn't know that slowing down on the job is in the interests of the working class; a class by 1he way that Mr. McCallum claims to be trying to industrially organise. But Mr. McCallum believes in slowing down, that is, for McCallum. A few weeks ago, this Labor official told the M.D.C. that his medical adviser had ad vised him to 'slow down,' otherwise...
