Eugene V. Deb's Daily Message
From NEIW YORK ('ALL.
"I wish to say in the broadest pos
sible way that I am opposing the
systemn under which we live today
because I bielieve it is subversive of
the best interests of the people. I
am not satisfied with things as they
are, and I know that, no matter what
admliiniictration is in power, even were
it a socialist administration, there
will be no material change in the
condition of the people until we have
a new social system based utpon the
mutual economic interests of the
whole people; until you and I and all
of us collectively own those things
that we collectively need and use.
"That is a basic economic propo
sition. As long as a relatively few

The mask is off. As all the
prophets of the social revolution
have predicted, the church machine
is performing its econonmic function
- --the preservation of capitalism. As
the capitalist structure of society ap
proaches its end--as hatred, chaos
and fanaticism preceding the storm,
increases---we see all the established
institutions of the bourgeois order---
school, press and pulpit--standing on
the side of the masters in opposition

Rev. George D. WVolfe of Mounta:la
View church has now placed his
puny shoulder against the spokes of
the great wheel of social evolution
and is about to make an attempt to
hold it motionless-- if not to turn it
backward. But the" goodly rever
end, like all social false-growths, is
so terrified at the vision of the
change which would prove hliii to be
a sullperfluous organisn, lihat he
throws all his Godly prudence to the
winds and is now butting out his
illmnmaculate-thou ght brains against
the stone wall of aine, rational rca
Dr. Wolfe introduces his per
verted view of the class-struggle with
a vile tirade of the Rius.:ian bolshe
viki, He says: "oI, neoi and Trot
sky, paid agents of the IHun, have
made of Russia ia blood-c(overed des
o'ation, a land of starvation, terror
and indiustrial, social, economic, po
litical and religious ruin."
This sentence contaiins two glar
ing, deliberate min;-statements. The
Gerlman agent story, already refuted,
exploded when we learned how bol
:,hevist prolpaganda &ndermiined the
morale of the Teutonic armies. The
fact that the soviet government has
held piower for over 18 mionths and
recently sent out a representative
with it large sumi of moniey to buly
machiinery, does not saEvor of either
economiic or political ruin.
Hle then speaks of the so-called
Americans who, ini their avarice,
greed and rejection of God, are help
ing the ignorant and misguided foes
who dwell beneath our flag, etc. Can
it be that he says our Gene Delbs-
our noble Gene who walked into a
bourgeois slave-pen for the class he
loved, is greedy or avaricious?
We are next told' that there are
millions of bolsheviki in oar coull
try, but that we must tell them that
thelre are "scores o( mlllilmis of us
who believe ill God and who know
and cherish the ideals that made
America great. Dr. Wolfe has evi
deutly forgotten that Amlleric:a was
born in the midst of revolt against
oppression. And as if we could halt
bolshevism by loudly proclaiming to

sion: ".We who love America do not.

place of honor and power."
The writer, being a class-conscious
proletarian. considered it his duty to
his class to answer the vile, filthy
lies and mnisrelpresentations of our
great cause, and there is not a point
in D)r. Wolfe's argument that any
socialist cannot shatter with case and

glacier-like, steady, irresistible.
Dr. Wolfe, you are bearing out the
prcdicitions of Karl Marx, that as
capitalisml nears its end the mnasters
will snarl, show their fangs, and, illn
their satiate greed for wealth and
p)ower, revert to the primitive abys
Inal least. The filth you hurl at the
oppressed today is the same that the
P'harisees flung at the gentle Naz
erene because the sweet, sad ray of
truth whichl he always shed, stripped
them of their seemIing virtue and ex
posed their disgusting hypocrisy in
all its hideous nakedness.
You camne near to tile truth, sir,
when you said, "Whose God is their
belly." The heartless systemn which
you upllold llhas made the stomlllach
incentive the ruler of the wage slave.
You say we m1ind only earthly, mla
