"THEY ARE CLASS CONSCIOUS."'
Charlie (Gildea reports that the strikers in Seattle have the
"determinalltion of class co(sisciolsnles." T'his is great news.
Made ellter by thle Naet thal Comrade (;ii(lea has stood the
"acid test" and( is litted to judge.
Ileterminalion of this kind cannot he bIeaten. It is the
type of courage and tenacity thie master class rear the mnnsl. It
is the first requisite for emancipatioln.
The enthusiasm of the working class. their williingness to
sneriflice alil suffer lhas been demonstrated on every page of
hiistory. Bint this deep, propelling eimotion, these torrents of
eltlllusiasm an1d willingness to do,. and die, must have the guid
iiing ru(ler of "class knlowled(ge. There must be a. clarity of'
thought. There must be the knowledge of the bolshevik w ºrk
man and peasant of Russia. whol when colnfronlte(d with all
kiiis of1' questions and argumlents, anllswered simply, "'Ietween
the plrolelarint and the lourgeois there can be nothing iin
commoni." This quiet satelenint had a worldI of ineaninig.
and defeated every foe.
Some will say, in ignorance or in their zeanl for the masters
whomn they serve they serve Ihatl knowledge of the class struggle is not
inecessary for eilmancipatioil. andi then ill the next breath w\\ill
refer to Russia. \\'lhat inonisense!
We know that Russia was the classic home of clear rIevolhi
lilnary socialism, anlli the theories of the c(lass struggle were
carriedi deep intol tile heart of the czir's emplire long before
Class consciousnlless is riot simply class instinict. It we rest
oni the latter alone, we shall fall into every trap set by our
Imastei:s. I'ollow every red herring Ithey lay across or patIlh.
Whereas, it we strive to have a clear lunderstanlding of the
capitalist system, of its workings. of' the class struggle and
the goal of the rev\olution, we cannolt go far astray and we shall
gain our indulstrial f'reedomn easier anld quicker.
Lenine's message to the workers of America is "Become
conilsctious f 1'your c1lass Ipositioin.'
This is the guide, the rudlder: this is what\ will tear (tdown the
capitalist sysem and nolt patch up its rottenness. Therelore

THEY WERE HAPPY.
Their hearts beat as one. Liebknecht was murdered. They
rejoiced. The iplte press of the United States laughed in
wardly, whilst the kaiser press of Germany laughed outwardly.
The capliilalisls of America went into the closets and drank to
Ihe death ofl' the agitatnler whilst the .junkers of l0rllssia'braawled
Iheir happiness on the streets and toasted in their joy. The
bankers of \Wall street mumbled a quiet prayer whilst the
llothclileds of Berlin lotdly thlanked their God.
Tlhey were happy. lemocracy and autocracy threw off
theii' sham and embraced each other. The grafters knew no
liins; no creed or race divided them. They were deeply moved
with joy, fot had not one of their deadly toes gone down, had
noIl. ote. el oli e comitmon enemy been muirdered?
These roe lbr rulers laughed when "Our Karl" 'was. killed.

so did the masters of the world.

W\hen I .\a; a boy ail went to school, 'some 50 or 60 years

in the public schoolsl. in W'isconsin, where I lived. In the back

"It seems ages ago when 'our boys'
were marched from the courthouse
and on down Main street to the de
pot, in their civilian rags, on their
way to the training camps and from
there over the pond to make the
world safe for democracy. As I said,
it seems ages ago, but, somehow, I
recall all the little details as though
it was but yesterday. I vision now
many of our prominent citizens,
sometimes referred to as flag-wav
ers, patting 'our boys' on the back
and saying, 'give the kaiser hell,
boys!' How grand it all was; in spite
of my efforts to control my feelings
the lumps used to rise and almost
choke me as I gazed with moistened
lamps at Bill and Buck and Pete de
parfing to put the finishing touches
to the kaiser. I sure felt sort, of
weepyto see those boys leaving, yet
I was also proud, for I knew them
and knew that they would give a
good account of. themselves; and
they sure did. But I was always sus
picious of those flag-wavers; some
how their actions seemed forced,
Their enthusiasm didn't seem to havt
the right ring.
"Well, the big show 'over there'
is all over, and some of. the boys are
back; and there were no brass bands
to receive them; the sleek and well
groomed gents, known as the flag
waving bunch were noticeable by
their absence. But the boys have
not been forgotten; they have not
been overlooked, not by a long shot,
pal. Some of them, those who keep
their ideas under their helmets, are
being slapped on the back by anoth
er bunch, with another message, the
meaning of which is 'more rock.'
Have you noticed that, pal, and have
you noticed the bandaged heads of
those wounded in the battle to 'make
the world safe for dividends,' as one
of themi whispered to me In the
