Patriotic Boneheads. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 January 1915

Patriotic- - - - - - - Boneheads. 'As- an' example of bone-headed stupidity and lickspittle crawl somncss, .combined with a wanton violation of all the cardinal prin ciples of unionism ; the action of thru conglomeration of political faddists known as the Melbourne Wharf Laborers Union, in deny ing to several -members of their 'union' the right of existence, by refusing to work with them simply because they .happened 10 have the misfortune to be born in Germans , stands out conspicuously in the annals of unionism in Australia. How the boss must smile to him self when he witnesses his slaves snapping and snarling at each other like wild beast, and realises how successfully his agents, in the shape of press, parson and poli tician, have chloroformed the minds of his slaves, and blinded them altogether as to the really vital issue, viz. — 'The Emancipa tion of the Worwing Class,'' and means wherewith lo accomplish it — Social and Industrial Revolu tion. Now then, you boneheads, rub the...

Kalgoorlie's Line of Lode [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 January 1915

Kalgoorlie's Line of Lode The wealthy class they often say, There is work for those who try, And repeat the phrase so often, Till they believe the ancient lie. To all of you who disbelieve, Their doubts will soon explode. If they will only take a walk Alone Kalgoorlie's line of lode. From north and south they come ir, scores, Aud search through mill and mine. It don't require a Sherlock Holmes To know that they are on the hunger line. And as they beg the right to work, The boss looks real annoyed. We gruffy mutters, 'Not to-day,' To the starving unemployed. And you who work below the ground, Two thousand feet or so, When your tired limbs are aching, Aud your strength is getting low, Across your brain will flash a pic ture, Of a large and hungry mob, Who, with eager lynx-eyed move ments, Are looking for your job. Then you ply your hammer quick er, , And you blindly sweat and moan. You consign the boss to blazes, And curse the hardness of the stone. You weakly wish that you were dead,...

Comparisons. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 January 1915

Comparisons. it is generally supposed that pros titutes, thieves, policemen and poli ticians acknowledge their profession -o be evil, and are ashamed of it. This is not so. A complete absence of the ethical sense enables these perverts to adopt a view of life which makes their place in tlie scheme of things seem admissabk. lo sustain this view they instinct ively keep to the circle of those who share their ideas of life and of their own place in it. When we hear a Voliceman boasting of the people he lias been instrumental in gaoling, irrespective of their innocence or JT'ilt, a politician gloating over some successful chicanery, a thief bragg ing of his dexterity, or a prostitute priding herself on her success in al lurement, we are surprised and re volted, but it is only because the en vironment of these bye-products of society is limited, and we are outside it. When our naval or military forces lioast of a victory — legalised mur der : when the rich boast of their wealth — robbery...

The Working Class. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 January 1915

The Working Class. The working class means many things, it means long hours, dull, dreary, brutalisiug and monoton ous toil ; it means out of work, pov erty, and a second class civilisation. But in spi-e of all these appear ances, the working class is the joy ;ind hope of civilisation. We have readied, that, stage in our social evolution, when the work ers have the greatest of functions to perform, tht ;is. the abolition .jf capitalism and tiu: establishment of an industrial di-inoeracy by the means of ONE BIG UNION. Most of the workers believe to day in some form of unionism. if the union of twenty workers is right, then the union of twenty mil lion is right. The ultimate and logi cal conclusion of unionism is i)-?. union of the entire working class. 'The industrial union shall be the human race.' Labour produces all wealth. If the working da-rs doss iiyt pro duce all wealth, then who (\ov.= 1 The working claps fines not receive all it produces, because of its: fault v organisation...

The I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 January 1915

The f.W.W. Preamble. The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. J here can be 11c peace so long as hunger and want are found among mil lions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all the good things of life. 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 ma chinery of production, and abolish the wage system.' We hud that the centreing of the management of industries into fewe. and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the ever-growing power of the employing -class. The trade unions foster 3 state of affairs which allows one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat onti another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employ ing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests in common with their employers. These condit...
