‘And from on high we have been honoured with a mission !

We passed a severe school , but acquired higher knowledge

Thanks to exile , prison , and a bitter lot,

We know and value the world of truth and freedom!

Death and Suffering of a child ;-

A child was born , he committed consciously neither bad nor good actions. He fell ill he suffered much and long , untill he died in terrible agony . Why? Wherefore ? It is eternal riddle for the philosphers.’

Frame of mind of a Revolutionary : ----

He who has ever been under the influence of the life of Jesus , who was borne in the name of an ideal , humiliation , suffering and death; he who has once considered Him as an ideal and his life as the prototype of a disinterested love - will understand the frame of mind of the revolutonary who has been sentenced and thrown into a

tomb for his work on behalf of popular freedom."

[ Vera N Figner ]

Rights : ---

Don’t ask for rights , take them. And don’t let any one give them to you .A right that handed to you for nothing has something the matter with it. It’s more than likely it is only a wrong turned in side out.

No Enemies?

You have no enemies you say ?

Alas! my friend the boast is poor;

He who has mingled in the fray

of duty , that the brave endure,

Must have made foes! If you have none,

small is the work you have done.

You ‘ve hit no traitor on the hip,

You ‘ve dashed no cup from perjured lip,

You ‘ve never turned the wrong to right,

You ‘ve been a coward in the fight.

[ Charles Mackey 747 ] {ed. now cry for justice 493(1996)}

Child Labour

No fledgling feeds the father bird !

No chiken feeds the hen,

No kitten mouses for the cat -

This glory is for men.

We are the Wisest , Strongest Race -

Loud may our praise be sung !

The only animal alive

That lives upon its young !

[ Charlotte Perkins Gilman ] { now C F J p442

No Classes ! No Compromise !!

( George D. Herron)

Under the Socialist movement there is coming a time and the time may be even now at hand , when improved conditions or adjusted wages will no longer be thought to be an answer to cry for labour; yes when these will be but an insult of the common intelligence. It is not for better wages, improved capialist conditions or a share of capitalist profits that the Socialist movement is in the world; it is here for the abolition or wages and profits and for the end of capitalism and private capital. Reformed political institutions boards of arbitration between capital and labour ,philanthropies and privilages that are but the capitalist’s gifts- none of these can much longer answer the question that is making the temples ,thrones and Parliments of the nation tremble. There can be no peace between the man who is down and the man who builds on his back. There can be no reconcilliation between classes; there can only be end of classes. It is idle to talk of goodwill untill there is first justice, and idle to talk of justice untill the man who makes the world possesses the work of his own hands. The cry of the world’s workers can be answered with nothing save the whole product of their work.

(George D. Herron)

Wastes of Capitalism

Economic estimates about Austrelia by Theodore Hertzka (1886)

Every family = 5-roomed 40 ft sq House to last for 50 years

Workers’ workable age : 16 to 50

So we hve 5,000,000.

Labour of 615,000 workers is sufficient to produce food for 22,000,000 people = 12.3% of labour

Including labour cost of transport ,luxuries need only 315,000 = 6.33% workers’ labour

That amounts to this that 20% of the available labour is enough for supporting the whole of continent. The rest 80% is exploited and wasted de to capitalist order of society.

Permanency of the Social Institutions

It is one of the illusions of each generation that the social institutions in which it lives are, in some peculiar ‘sense’, "natural " , unchangeable and permanent. Yet for countless thousands of years, social institutions have been successively arising , developing, decaying and becoming gradually superseded by others better adopted to contemporary needs.......

.... The question ,then , is not whether our present civilization will be transformed ,but how it will be trasformed?

It may be considerate adaption , be made to pass gradually and peacefully into a new form . Or , if there is angry resistance instead of adaption ,it my crash , leaving mankind painfully to build up a new civilization from the lower level of stage of social chaos and disorder in which not only the abuses but also the material, intellectual and moral gains of the previous order will have been lost.

Capitalism and Commercialism :----

Rabinder Nath’s adress to an assembly of Japanese students :---

" You had your own industry in Japan ; how scrupulously honest and true it was, you can see by its products - by their grace and strength , their conscientiousness in details where they can hardly be observed . But the tidal wave of falsehood has swept over your land from that part of the world where business is business and honesty is followed merely as the best policy. Have you never felt shame when you see the trade advertisements , not only plastering the whole town with lies and exaggerations, but invading the green fields , where the peasents do their honest labour, and to hilltops which greet the first light of the morning?..... This commercialism with its barbarity of ugly decorations is a terrible menance to all humanity , because it is setting up the ideal of power over perfection . It is making the cult of self seekig exult in its naked shamelessness.................

page 39 ... Its movements are violent , its noise is discardently loud. It is carrying its own damnation because it is trampling into distortion. The humanity upon which it stands .It is strenously turning out the money at the cost of happiness......... The vital ambition of the present civilization of Europe is to have the exclusive possesion of devil.

Capitalist Society :

"The foremost truth of political economy is that everyone desires to obtain individual wealth with as little sacrifice as possible."

Karl Marx on Religion :------

Man makes religion ; religion does not make man. Religion , indeed, is the self consciousness and the self feeling of man who either has not yet found himself or else ( have found himself) has lost himself once more. But men is not an abstract being squatting down somewhere outside the world . Man is the world of men , the state , society. This state ,this society produces religion, produces a perverted world consciousness, because they are a perverted world. Religion is the generalised theory of this world its encylopaedic compend , its logic in a popular form ........... The fight against religion is, therefore a direct compaign against the world whose spiritual aroma is religion

continued from last page:------

Religion is the sigh of oppressed creature the feelings of a heartless world just as it is the spirit of inspiritual conditions. " It is the opium of the people"

The people cannot be really happy untill it has been deprived of illusory happines by the abolition of religion. The demand that the people should shake itself free of illusion as to its own condition is the demand that it should abondon a condition which needs illusion

The weapon of criticism cannot replace the critiism of weapons. Physical force must be overthrown by physical force as soon as it takes possesion of the masses.
