Bernard Shawisms. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 September 1910
Bernard Shawisms. Tiik true diagnostic of modern gentil ity is parasitism. A gentleman of our days is one who has money enough to do what every fool would do if he could afford it that is, consume without producing. : ' No elaboration of physical or niora.l. accomplishment can atone for the sin of parasitism. ? The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one ? persists in' trying to adapt the world Yo..;hii,nsbU'. Therefore., all progress depends ,on the unreasonable man. ??' ?Charity is the most mischievous sort of- pruriency. All men mean well.' ,

Open Column. The Vista of Ages And the Voice of Love. I. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 1 October 1910
Open Column. 1 The Vista of Ages And the Voice of Lwe. I1V A. II. 11EHKY. I. The prehistoric man and his hammer, the barbarian and his slaves, the feudal lord and his serfs,1 the capitalist and worker of to-day, the law and army and navy, are seen by the student of evolution, history, economics, and sociologv.to be connected. The student also recognises that the spoils of the savage, bar barian, and feudal lord — wrung from the victim, slave, and serf respectively — are identical with profits, rents, and interest, which are unjustly (if legally) taken by the capitalist from the worker of to-day. The average supporter of the Bible un thinkingly rejects the theory of Evolution, whilst oil the other, hand the average sup porter of ^volution and Socialism is inclined to speak lightly of the Bible. May not, how ever, their views be reconcilable? If the de scription of creation contained in Genesis l-e interpreted allegorically, and it is also re ineniliered that the Bible through its pro...
Patriotism and Militarism. A Menace to Liberty. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 1 October 1910
Patriotism and Militarism. A Menace to Liberty. BY KMM.V U0M)MAX. (Continual.) A wkitkh on the militany conditions of America, in a recent article, commented on the power of the military man over the ci vilian in Germany. He said, among other things, that if our Republic had no other meaning than to guarantee all citizens equal rights it would have just cjiuso for existence. 1 am convinced that the writer was not in Colorado during the Patriotic regime of General hell. He probably would- have changed bis mind had he seen how, in the name of Patriotism and the Republic, men - were thrown into hull-pens, dragged about, driven across, the border, and subjected to all kinds of indignities. Nor is that Colorado incident the only one in the growth of the military power in the United States. There is hardly a strike where troops and militia do not come to the rescue of those in power, and where they do not act as arrogantly and brutally as do the men wearing the Kaiser's uniform. Then, too...

BROKEN ON THE WHEEL. ? - -- — ▼?- ? Thkkk children played on the attic floor. The babe that lay in the cradle made four. A widow sat at bur wheel in 1 sewed, Many her wants and much she owed. And all must be met from what she made, The pitiful pittance the sweatshop paid. The eldest came running, ' Mother, dear, The milkman with his bill is here.' .She emptied her purse. ' Whatever betide, Baby must have his food,' she sighed. She sewed and sewed, not lifting her head, The smallest pause would mean less bread. ' 0, nintl.er, the grocer asks his pay.' ' Tell him ' to-mo'rrnw '— I've nothing to day.' And -»n she sewed, the sad-faced one. Who buried her husband a twelve-month gone. ' I'm hungry, mother!'

A Column of Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 1 October 1910
A Column of Clippings. Tun politician may tell you that the beads of perspiration on your brow are more precious than the jewels of a. coronet, but he does not wear that kind of jewels. The Empress of Russia has a passion for perfumes. She collects them with the eu tiiusiasin tliat other people.; bestow'. on pic ,turcs or old china. Amongst her treasures 'is' a scent distilled from a rare variety of ?wild rose found only in the south of her dominions. ' It costs, she boasts, not less than fifty pounds a drop. But there is an infinitely costlier perfume being prepared for her. royal house. .It is distilled from the blood of tin: people, and its name is Free dom. If there is a crime that should bring the 'crmison wave of shame to the cheek of man it is child labor. We have to-day capitalistic class govern ment.

A Call for Help from Argentina. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 1 October 1910
A Call for Help from Argentina. Tiik general secretary of the S.F.A. has re ceived the following letter from the Socialist Party in the Argentine: ' To the Socialist, Parties of the World. ' Bv means of martial law, and under a state of siege, the Congress of this country is enforcing the tyrannical law of repression, the principal points of which you will find reprinted in the accompanying journal. ' In view, of the urgency- of this communication we were not able to send a full translation. 'Under this law, the penalty of death is summarily inflicted on women and minors from the age of 1-S as well as men. ''The law pretends to combat anarchism, but the Government takes advantage of 'it to suppress Socialist propaganda, crush the in 'dustrial organizations, and restrict the right to strike, as well as the right of public meet ing and other civil rights. 'This law was passed in the brief space of j -IS hours, in compliance with the demands ! of the bourgeoisie, after the explosion of...

Why I am a Socialist. Some Ssntimental Reasons. UY K. .1. HlfAOV. I. Wiikx I come to give reasons for being a So cialist T Mud that each Fresh consideration of the question brings up a host of hilluenecs that affect me. I think I am a, Socialist largely from sympa thy. You gut to tin; core of theCollic character through tlie emotion rather than by reason. It is said that an Irishman is always ' agin the g)vermneiit.' Having regard to the nature of class government all the world over, this statement may be accepted as a compli ment to Celtic perception. (iovernment in its existing form is more often than not a system of brute force care fully organised to preserve the rights and privileges of the small exploiting class at the expense of the health, security, and hap piness of the great exploited majority. For this reason I am 'agin the govern ment.' Except in my own personal satisfaction I stand to lose rather than gain by being a Socialist. It is not yet a popular faith. Its open pr...

Nobody left work ; evcry one remained, at his post, ? obeying- every order-, rule, and regulation in such a way that the whole railway system has been thrown out of gear, and the service is almost tied up.

Socialist Fables. The Man Underneath. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 1 October 1910
Socialist Fables. The Man Underneath. A i ik aw dray broke down in the street. A. man was crushed beneath it. On top of the. dray was a load of merchandise, anil on top of that sat a lot of capitalists. A crowd of men gathered and began to discuss, how to relieve the man underneath. They discussed so hard that the people nnail.v created tiiem into a L arliainent. Then they called in a lot more, men called Political Economists, who decided that the man had always been crushed; it was his natural condition, and it was useless to think of releasing him. The Statesman said it would overturn civilisation to let the man get out from under the dray, and so it would. Next, chairs were endowed in universities to teach that the man was not lit to survive, or that he had too much over-production on top of him, and even if he got out he could not walk because of lack of experience in walking. Then came the Theologians. 'who said the man's heart was. bad,- aiid must be saved lirst. Also, that if...
