Dupes of Capitalism. A. Mack. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

Dupes of Capita lism. A. Mack. For agos the world -has sorrowed in war. At one period, that usuallv tcrir. e-l peace, the workers are warring against the master class and against the forces of nature for the right to live. At other periods, when the com mercial pirates quarrel over me -ns- tribution of the wealth produced by the worker, the workers who had bopn pre viously fighting #the boss element, at once forget the struggle and hurry to show the world that their group of mas ters is the best, and consequently they would rather be. slugged by them than by any other group. All at once their interests become identical, so much so that the boss stays away from the war line, and expends his energy coaxing and cajoling the brainless toiler to don the khaki — the insignia of the most degraded slavery to which any human creature could descend — and race for tho front to kill or b;- killed because the boss has interests somewhere in the struggle.

Criticism — P'raps. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

Criticism -- P'raps, i How is a choice sample of the ad vice tendered to the 'scabs,' who term themselves the 'Industrial workers of ? the world'': — 'Treat tho boss as an enemy, an unscrupulous enemy, Loo.' Truly, a splendid ideal to inculcate \n ^ to the minds of its members — an ideal worthy of the sewer from wh-cli it emanated. If you can't get what you v/niit— Kwever unreasonable that wait may bo — knock the boss on the head with a belaying pin. How different have been the means adopted by' the members of the F.S.U.. guided by the advice of their officials. They have treated tho shipowners as men3 with rights to con serve, as well as their own. They have gone about their business with tho shipowners in a manly, business-like, straightforward manner — the ony way which finds a response in the heart of j every true-minded Uritish seaman — , j with the result that to-day the condi tions of seafaring life under the rules \ ? of the Federated Seamen's Union have ! been .altered to s...

War. Bring Out Your Living. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

War. Bring Out Your Living. The great and ghastly war, con \ wising the 'vitals of the so-called civi lised world, should cause men and voiiien of ail nations to think, and Jiink deeply, to endeavour to bring forward and to put into operation some force that will for ever save the worlds peoples from such bloody slaughter. Whom do nations appoint to make war or to prevent wars ? A score or two diplomatists and politi cians, cynics, artificers of the artificial who live m houses where war's knock ing is muffled, his cry nothing more than. 'Masters. ye have unleashed me. I am off to my garnering.' Nor from Kings drunken with am bition. Financiers, whose fingers itch for their contracts, politicians, who play pawns wMi stalwart men's lives and poor broken hearts. War does not claim them.

Pawns in the Game. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

Pawns in the Game. A struggle for power betwen classes has always existed. King John at Rimnymi.de signed the great Charter, only through tho Barons parading their armed might b6iore them. The pawns they used in their struggle for power were thousands of simple armed men, it ho were prepared to follow the Barons' lead. History does not tell us what the Barons' armed followers got „,,.? «c tim mmo. We know they gene rally get the hard and dirty work to do. To-day they yet medals. p_Jg h'g-S also honor and glory, whatever that may be. The common herd are still pawns in tin? game to-day, as much as they, were in King John's time.

Unless the pawns are intelli fi.Tit and organised, know what they want, they will either be sold by their leaders, or crushed by the powers that be.

Surplus Value and the Proletariat. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

Surplus Value and the Proletariat. The one vital problem before the working class to-day is how to get hold of the surplus value they produce. All questions of religion, morality or ethics sink into insignificance before this pressing necessity. , — In fact, ..the- only way by which the working class can begin to be religious or moral is by their efforts to secure the surplus value created by them, but at present taken by the master class. Art, science, music and literature perform beautifying 'and tennobliugt functions in life, but until the work ing class wrests to its own use and bem'iit surplus value those do but mock its chains. Various propositions are brought f-;r- wiird as to the way in which this .sur plus vsiluo is to be secured. Honchoad No. 1 says that the. way out of the wood for the worker is to buy a 5/8 ticket in 'Tatt-ei'sail's' and win a few thousand pounds. Ry balancing official receipts ;»n-l ex penditure in this enterprise, it will be found, howovi-r, that the '...

Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1915

Melbourne Amid the devastating waves of in dustrial depression, and the putrid atmosphere of . patriotism now prevail ing, Local No. 8 is bravely battling along and holding its own. In these days of madness, when many Labor organisations have become defunct, and many working class papers gone out of existence, ..it is good to know that we still live and function and pay our way. Although to-day, the I.W.W. is _ a well established institution in the city of Melbourne, the road we have travell ed has not been all smooth and easy going. At times we had to fiffht against great odds, and hard plugging work was our only reward, but we did our duty gladly and well. Our old life-long enemy, the master class, have not been out on their own in pnying attention to us. Working class agitators, styling themselves 'revolutionists,' have found time to malign, vilify, and slander the I.W.W. Hut we have lived through it all and triumphed over the lies, bigotry, and abuse indulged in by our ;'dear co...
