The Bulletin's Bosh. BARRACHI'S BARRACK. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

The Bulletin's Bosh. ? * ? liAilKAClil'S BAKHACK-. A very mucli mixed economist is Guida TJarraclii of the 'iiulictin. ' Me is going to injury the One Big Union (when he gels it) to the Staie and get a pup out of them which, is going to be called ihe ''National Guild Sys tem.' (? i\ow Guido is noi altogether such a durr.ed fool as might be inferred by the above. He believes in industrial unionism, but when it comes to it's alias, viz., social revolution, he seems to get a bit uneasy about the number who would lose their present billets. He thinks it would be better to have half indus trial democracy and half capitalism — then everybody would be satisiied. As I have said Guido starts out pretty well. Listen: — ?'Vile Australian unionist must remem ber that the attempt to emancipate himself through politics is foredoomed to failure , . . . If he will study the matter he will see that political l-ower cannot be transmitted into economic power, that economic power precedes and dominates...

Atrocities-British. "BLOODY" ASQUITH'S FRESH CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

Atrocities-British. 'BLOODY' ASQUITH'S FRESH CRIME. Afler the shooting of James Connolly avc should hear no more from John Bull about 'German atrocities.' There may or may not be in the recent history of Germany something equalling this act for sheer inhuman brutality, but certainly there can be no act for which there could be less justification. Soldiers, be they German or English, in the 'heat of battle, we know, will commit acts from which they would recoil in calmer moments,, but the execu tion of a man who was so desperately wound ed that he was unable to gel our. -;f bee] 1o meet his executioners has no sue!) exev.z? to justfiy it, and can only bo described as cal:::, premeditated, cold-blooded murder. Recently in Sydney citizens were shocked on reading of a loneh restaurant keeper who was strangled and brutally done to death in his shop in the middle of the night. The capitalist press marked its appreciation of ihe enormity of the crime with the usual headline?;, bui the same...

I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

LW.W. Preamble. The working class and the employing' clas? have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all i U ., s^-s-mA + 1-»i it ore nf li r*V LUC ^UUU luiu^o *-»». **-*-- Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the manage ment of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of af fairs which allow one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working-class have interests in common w...

IN THE INDUSTRIAL DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

IN THE INDUSTF.iAL DEMOCRACY. At a recent Sunday evening lecture in the old hall, while endeavouring to present ih' subject of 'Parliament and the Workers,' the following question was put to the present writer: 'Do you believe in Majority Rule?'' The obvious answer of course is: — 'Yes, if the majority agrees with me.' This question of majority rule, however, raises an interesting point as to the function and power of majorities in the new order of society— the Industrial Democracy. 'Will there be Majority Rule in the days of tlie One Big Union?' I do not quite see how we can avoid it, so Ions,' as differences of view-point and conse quently opinion exist. Differences of opinion (here will be to the end of Time. Indeed, for the matter of that, we have them already with us in the I.W.W.— the neuclus cf the new or der of society. We do not all see eye to eye on every subject; neither is it necessary that we should do so. The point that needs to be emphasised is this: That, however we ...

The Irish Rebellion. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

The Irish Rebellion. X-j\, ???that liie -/disturbance's which Have taken place in Ireland are .past history, we are .belter able to distinguiush the causes and et :-'iimaie the results than in the excitement dur ing the events.

Before we rashly accept such a statement, let us 'consider the objects and the results of the insurrection.' There is no doubt the move ment was partly nationalist, partly industrial ist, and the industrialist elements cf the iiic-VL-nient- had their origin in the past crpros on and explo...
