SOME PILLS FOR LAW-MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 12 December 1891
SOME PILLS FOR LAW-MAKERS. Burt, the English miner M. P. says that &nbsp; where there are 'conspiracy' and other anti combination laws there is violence, but workmen are left free to combine and to strike there is none. The early Christian martyrs were nothing in the world but political offenders, imprisoned and executed because their doc trines were regarded by tyrants as antago nistic to the tyrant-riding of the State. Con spiracy laws existed before George IV. and all tyrannical governments have had a little St. Helena to coop 'cunning reformers' up in, just as the squatter government has. Griffith may be pleased to know that Lombroso, the great Italian criminalogist, declares that too ardent reformers are practi cally 'criminals' in the scientific sense be cause it is so natural for society to develop very slowly that it is anti-social to try to move the world too quickly. Of course, the old difficulty still remains : How fast will the world move? Not even Lombroso could...
