"Educating" the Worker. Professorial "Arguments." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1914

[?] Professorial ' Arguments.' Professor Atkinson, University! teacher of Economics to liie Work-] its' Educational Association, an organisation which has such 'intel- lectuals' as Mr Wm. Hughes and Judge Heydon on its lecture plat form in Australia, delivered the first of a series of lectures, under Ihe auspices of that body, at the Trades' Hall a few evenings ago. The subject of the address was 'Industrial Unrest.' The Pro fessor gave a short resume of indus trial history in leading up to the subject matter of his address. In dealing with the Industrial Revo lution which began in the 18th cen !ury, Professor Atkinson informs us that it was not the introduction of   machinery, but the introduction of power, which produced unemploy ment. 'An evidence of this,' he states, 'is the charge levelled   against the early railway that it would displace the horse; of course   horses were- not required for the same purpose, but a vastly greater &...

CAPITALISM AND MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1914

CAPITALISM AND MURDER. The capitalist press is giving   columns of hypocritical bunkum to the murder of a parasitical tyrant with the title of the Archduke of Austria Over 200 miners were murdered, buried alive, in a coal mine in Brit ish Columbia a few days previously', and the same sheets that pretend to be appalled over the shedding of blood noticed tho incident to the extent of a line or two. Of course,   these unfortunate miners were not blue blooded parasites, only red blooded workers. Tearful pictures were drawn or the orphans who were left, ns ^ result of the murder of the Arch duke and his wife. The greater part of a township was left widowed and fatherless as a rcsuht of the 'acci- dent' in British Columbia; but as capitalism has a superfluity of wage slaves, its press has no tears to waste over trifles of that kind. The children of the Archduke will be well cared for-; fed on the best, petted and pampered', educated in the best of schools', and b...

"MAD MULLAHS" AND BLIND ALLEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1914

MAD MULLAHS AND BLIND AL It is marvellous how irrational^ some ballot box revolutionists be comc when discussing the I.W.W. A N.Z. paper on exchange, for   instance, belches forth on 'the Mad Mullahs, who advocate throwing   the ballol box to the place where Pat Hickey consigned agreements   some years ago.' Now, it does necessarily mean that the ballot box is useful because the majority of Radical workers in N.Z. or any other country, deem -it to be useful. ''Majorities' are very seldom right, and the Labour move- ment itself, is by no means an ex ception in this rule. Peter Kropotkin is an anti-Parlia mentarian, and I don't think that anyone, who has read the valuable works of the eminent Russian scien tist, would call him a Mad Mullah, just because he has no use for the ballot box.   The I.W.W. bases its organisn tion upon the fact that all social   questions have been, are and will be settled by might —that is, -wh...

Jail for the I.W.W. Treachery of Politicians. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

Needless to say, if the Labour Government waits for its revenue until fines of this character are! paid bv members of the Induslnal Workers of the World, its masters, the British financiers, will have a long time to wait for their dividends. The honouf , or the word ol a politician, is proverbially infamous, and Mr. Hall, the Labour Minis er for justice, has in this case fully upheld the reputation of his kind. The same day on which the lines were imposed, 'Mr. Hall assured a deputation that interviewed him in -onnection with the matter, inai here would be no ' unnecessary de ny in giving his decision with re gard to the remission of the sen tences.

The Shorter Work-day. Its Economics. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

The Shorter Work-day. Its Economics. The commodity known as labour power, or the ability to produce wealth, which is possessed by every worker, is bought and sold in a market, just as is wheat or any other article, and like them it is subject to the natural law of sup ply and demand, and fiunctuates ac cording as the labour-market is under-slocked or over-stocked. Owing to this economic law, when 1 !„..-» it -. ^111-nhis of anv commod ity its price depreciates and, vice versa. Long hours of labour, the Introduction of newer and more modern machinery, 'scientific management,' and 'speeding-up ahvavs result in glutting the mar ket, the surplus workers are thrown out of employment to compete with those workers fortunate enough to have a job, and reduce their wages besides making the position of the ,.-i1(-,ln rl:i« more precarious and uncertain. This leads to the con tention of industrial Unionists that less work invariably means more wages, because it decreases the number of unemploye...

"The Land of Plenty." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

'The Land of Plenty.' Times o.ut of number one reads of Xew South Wales and Australia generally, as 'the land of sun shine'; a place where everybody enjoys life and misery does not exist.

A great percentage of workers in this so-called 'land of plenty' are compelled at certain periods to go through an unemployed stage, whether they like it or not, because the buyers of labor power have so overstocked their warehouses, that production -must be curtailed until a market has been found for this over-supply.

"Ca Canny." The Sun's Economics are Moonshine. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

'Ca Canny.' The Sun's Economics are Moonshine. The employers in Australia late ly have been kicking up a shindy through the medium of their press, because workers are more than ever inclined to slow up on the job, or, in other words, to adopt the 'Ca' Canny'' method of sabotage. 'Direct Action1' is not going to follow the example of Trade Union officialdom, or the Trade Union Ml I ^-, llllll K^\Jii tjJl*. III UUIl LIU^I 1^» «- 'gross libel' on Australian wai-'C- earncrs. The unfortunate part of it is that the 'accusation' is not founded on a universal fact. True or false, however, it is amusing to watch the. antics and somersaults of the press in its anxiety to prove to the workers thai tactics of this kind are in real ity dangerous to their own inter ests. The 'Sun' of July 17th, for instance, in a leading article would have us believe that the wage of the worker is determined by the profit of the indus'.ry in which he is employed, and draws a picture ol (lie capitalist and working...

New Zealand And its Federation. The 'Borers' Bogged. The report of the. July Conference of the United Federalon of Labour has come to hand, and makes very inieresting reading for the militant, industrialists of Australasia. It is quite evident that, whatever the organisation mav have been in the. past, that it has now reached thai stage where il ceases to be a revolutionary factor, and a help t' the legislation-ridden workers ol Xcw Zealand. A few militant dele gates endeavoured to make iheir voices heard and I heir inlli.ien-.~c fell, but they were si i (led and outvoted by the barnacled crowd who hail from the easy chairs of the various Trades Halls of the Dominion, The militant miners will scarcely be pleased with the results of 'he conference, after all the money they have thrown into the organisation during the past six years, anil the elforls put forward bv them to organise with some decree of effici ency, their class in New Zealand.
