There are a good many articles in the Appeal to Reason
that seem indefensible appeals to class prejudice but they
may bo necessary to awaken the class they arc tUriving to
reach. Thero are also nmnv fearless art tries based nnon
indisputable truth, such as the record of federal judges
that no other paper has dared to print, yot which should be
On the whole, the influence of tho Appeal to Reason is
for good, and it is because it tells the truth, along with its
buncoinb, that its editors are persecuted by the federal
government, whose qgents it has exposed.
This paper does not believe that the communistic state,
advocated by socialists, is either practical or a cure-all for
social and iiolitieal evils. But this is a problem that the
evolution of the race will work out. Many of the socialist
ideas have been or will be universally accepted.
It has been the function of the federal government,
as of all governments of the past, to protect tho classes
rather than tho masses, to protect the dollar rather than
the man. It is the protest against these conditions that
the Appeal voices. The strutrirle is a never endiinr ono. it
has existed in all nations, in all times, and huuian'liberty is
measured by its success.
Perhaps the first "appeal to reason" the Knglish
speaking race listened to was in the glorious reign of Kd
ward Hi. in the fourteenth eenturv. Edward, drunk
from his conquest of the French, was unable to conuticr the
misery existing in merry England. .Repressive laws, com
peinng iaoor to work for wages insufficient to support life
throw the people into outlawry and the 20 year peasants'
revolt followed a revolt against the whole system cf
social inequality that had passed unquestioned as the
divine order of tho world.
John Ball, the ".Mad Priest of Kent," mad even as
Debs is mad, because he opposed existing inequality made
the first appeal to reason, the first declaration of the
rights of man, in the following language:
"Good people, things will never be well in England, so
long as goods be not in common, and so long as there be vil
leins and gentlemen. By what right are flier whom we
m jurus greater tone tuan wet Un wliat grounds have
they deserved itf AVhy do thev hold us in serfage? If
we all come of the same father and mother, of Adam and
l-ivc, how can they say or prove that thev are bettor than
we, if it be not that they make us gain for them bv our toil
what they spend in their pride i They are cloaked in vel
vet and warm in their furs and their ermines, while we are
covered with rags. They havo wine, and spices and fair
iread; and we oatcake and straw and water to drink. Thev
havo leisure and fine houses; we have pain and labor, the
rani and the wind in the fields. And vet it is of us and
our toil that these men hold their state.5'
The peasants' revolt culminated in Wid Tvler's rebel
lion followed by wholesale executions. Seven thousand
men were hanged in one summer for uttering the treason
able doctrine of equality of mankind. Yet the old condi
tions died away in spite of laws and courts and jinnies, and
serfdom was abolished.
It was the tyranny of property that called forth John
iiall s appeal, just as it has called forth the "Appeal to
Reason" of the 20th century. As long as the tvrannv ex
ists, .iiistso long will similar appeals be made.
The remedy is not the punishment and persecution of
tho Balls, Debs' and "Warrens, but the remed ving of condi
tions that create them remove the cause and not the
