THE WORKERS LEADER. November 1, 1890. THE EFFECTS OF THE STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 November 1890
* THE WORKE^JLEADEE; November lt 1890. -'- THE EFFECTS OF THE STRIKE/ ~ One of the most conspicuous features of the — €»nflii^lms_feeen^tl^r^ opinion. Broadly speaking, and omitting the individualistic section of the Single Tax League, the strike has produced three distinct parties. The first comprises those who are* disinclined to view with sympathy any signs of aggression on the part of the masses ; j the second those who, ? J?MMj|pproving of trade unionism, dread a plunge into the calm waters of SolSiaTilnTi^nd the third those who, prejudiced against trade unionism, are yet Socialists at heart. To the first class appeal is useless.. Nothing but the ? ruthless logio of events _j«rill ever convince the genuine Vested Interasfc party. To jbhe secoj^i — class, however, one may reasonably suggest how shallow it is to talk about a preference for trade unionism at the expense of Socialism; to the third class how utterly Utopian to cast longing '^'^aaxo^Wmsitds a-SocMistic^tuTe-whilsiM d...
