"The Social Significance of the Modern Drama" [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1914

'The Social Significance of die Modern Drama' Emma Goldman's work on the modern radical drama is both in teresting and fascinating. The new school of dramatists treated in this work are ranged into national sections, in which Miss Goldman proceeds with meaty comment and copious extract to discuss social questions with her unu;u rci i tailing iranKness. .\na although I do not agree with Miss Goldman's \:iews that the drama is going to be a prominent factor in overthrowing the present monstrous system of exploitation, yet I am convinced that many new thoughts and ideas will occur to the revo lutionist *on reading this timelv work. In most of the plays under re view the struggle of classes is vividly pourtrayed, and coloured with the misery and degradation of the outcast, the mock morality and self sufficiency of ihe rich, the bigotry and intolerance of dogma and orthodox}-, the trials, pitfalls and crucifixion of new ideas. Re volt and the clash of industrial con flict pervade the boo...

A Chinese Revolutionist in the Far East. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1914

A Chinese Revolutionist in the Far East. (The following- will give the readers of 'Direct Action' some idea of the advance of revolution arv thought and action in the Far East. It was written to a fellow worker in Auckland, N.Z., who kindly sent it on to us. — Editor.) Rangoon. Burmah, May 27th, 1914. Dear Comrade, — I beg to inform you that all the publications sent by you have been received in good condition, for which 1 thank you. I was specially interested in the journal called 'Direct Action,' published in Sydney. Australia. The syndicalist party must be very strong there. I have already started to publish a magazine thrice a month in Chinese. The philos ophy will be that of Anarchist Communism. During the past year, numerous Chinese workers in Southern Asia have formed themselves into a union, to whom I shall supply m- magazine, which also contains the knowledge and expression of Syndi calism. I therefore desire you to kindly particiate and assist me in my venture by sending m...

Why The Workers Must Starve. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1914

Why The Workers Must Starve. — _.. + -- ... The employing- class of Austra lia -ire at their wits' end lo discover some method whereby they may cat their cake and still have it. Between the desire to take full advantage. of the overcrowded labour market created by the war, by reducing waives, etc., and a very natural fear that the workers after all may not meekly submit to be victims to a situation they did not create, their politicians, econo mists and journalists are all at logger-heads. On one point, how ever, they are all agreed, and that is that the people as a whole 'must be prepared to make 'sacrifices.' The 'people as a whole,' of course, are the working-class, and the sacrifices they are called upon to make are of a nature -entirely foreign to the master class, their henchmen and hangers on. Workers, for instance, are urged ' not alone by their employers., but by no less a bodv than the Labour Council of New South Wales to 'modify' their 'living wage' agreements, and show t...

The Diesel Motor It's Economic Significance. From the International Socialist Review. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 October 1914

T h e D i e s e 1 Mo to r . It's Economic Significance. By Barbara Lily Franfcenthal. From the International Socialist Revciw. Day by day more of the work of the world is taken up by .machi. nery. In a bulletin recently issued by the U.S. Government, it is es timated that four and one-hall mil States turn out a product equal to the 1'and labor of forty-five million men. This means that 90 per cent, of the work in the factories is done by machinery, or that one man, with the help of machines, is enabled to produce ten times more tran he needs; in oilier words, 1-j satisfy the wants of one man for one day, a factors- worker requires only one hour, instead of len, as he is work ing now. For whom does he work thf remaining nine hours? 'Hie bankers, brokers, mer chants, soldiers and ihe whole gang of parasites do not produce one day's need in their whole life time; they make money, but do not create wealth. But, one might say, ihe capitalists furnish the machines. But it was the steel mi...

His Master's Voice., The oracle has spoken!

A Letter to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 October 1914

A Letter to the Editor. Fellow Worker, — I trust that you will give me space in 'Direct Action' to give your readers my impressions of so-called unionism. Craft unions arc mere fallacies, as no doubt thousands 01 workers are realising to-day, and it is only compulsion that makes me lake out my union ticket. For some time I have been em ployed by the Australian Gas Com pany. As soon as the war broke out. word was passed round that all men were to be placed on half time during the crisis. A special meeting was called to be held at the Trades' Hall, at which it was agreed unanimously that we should share and share alike. This was done for a month during which time we worked week about, until some of the 'seniors' kicked up rough, and said that they were entitled to tl:e whole loaf in stead of half of it. Another meet ing was then held, at which it was decided that senior men should be kept on constant, which means that 400 of us 'juniors' — as they term us — are cast on the streets wit...

The Futile Labor Party [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 October 1914

The Futile Labor Party Tile 51I1 of September ha:-, come and gone, and the working class of Australia have decided to continue the useless method of returning members to the House of Represen tatives. The Labor Party, with their dubious and scabby record, arc io go back to the Government benches for another three wars' sponge on the workers. The Premier, ex-miner Fisher, says thai he will give the life of the last man in Ausiralia in order to kill the workers of other comiiries in the interesis of Capital. 1 Icll you, workers, that the men we put into Parliament to improve our con ditions have betrayed us even as Judas betrayed Christ. One of the planks of the Labour Parly's platform was the abolition of the Upper House. Did they do anvthing in this matter in \e\v South Wales, Westrali.i or Queens land where they had the power? [Oh, but I forgot New South Wales, for they have done something. They have actually increased the number by adding several more, and il is aMeged that they w...

Sydney. The activities of this local have been hampered slightly of late by rain. The Domain meeting was abandoned on Sunday, the 13th o!' oepi., out at nignt a large meeting was held at .IJathursl-street, which was followed by a meeting in the Hall at Castlereagh-sl red. Mrs. Katz was the lecturer, and she dealt with her subject, 'Woman: Past, Present and Future,' in ii convincing, and in teresting manner. We hope for another lecture at an early date. Generally, propaganda is going on very satisfactorily; literature and paper sales are very good. An influx of Hrokcn Hill members have arrived, as things are very bad on the Barrier on account of the clos ing down of the mines.

From the Locals. Wellington, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 October 1914

From the Locals. ' Wellington, N,Z. This Local has been having a trying time lately as it has lost most of its active members, who haw had to leave -Wellington for econo mic reasons. Fellow workers Han Ion and Siames have loir lor a tr:p through the United Slates ami Mexico, from which we expect them to return in a year's lime. The local has had to curtail its activities considerably on account of the war, as the plugs prefer 1.0 hang round the Evening Ghost office and read the war junk stuck up on the board. Probably, they will wake up when they; find the patriotic boss begins to cut down their pay envelope, which is inevi table, seeing that there is already over 1,000 unemployed in Welling ton. One gratifying feature of the war is that the scabs and special constables are going lo the front. The S.D.P. are intent upon a vic tory at the ballot box. and rumour hath it that direct actionist and sabotageur are likely to be be headed by the vote worshippers. Nothing has been heard of t...
