The End of Autocracy
T he End of
"The defeat of autocracy on the
fields of France meant the defeat
of autocracy everywhere. "-Samuel
But there are some autocrats who
do not seem to know that they and
their system are beaten. They are
still wielding tremeiidous power over,
the masses of the people, over gov
ernments and over states, and they
do not seem to fear that somebody
will take that power away from them.
Officially, of course, we do not rec
ognize any kind of autocracy in this
country, but in practice we are
bossed very much against our will,
many things are done in our name
but without our consent, our whole
way of living and working is de
termined by powers that defy any
attempt at controlling them from our
side, and under democratic form
despotism creeps In everywhere,
even in the labor movement; it is
the despotism of the "machine."
Gompers knows all that, as the
"head" of a large organization of
men, the "friend" of leading states
men and the "spokesman" of organ
ized labor lie must know it. He
must know that right without might
has no show whatever, neither in the
field of politics nor in the ranks of
organized labor, that justice without
power is helpless everywhere, and
that the masses of the Amerncan
people are at the mercy of those
who control the means of life.
It is claimed that the just powers
of government are derived from the
consent of the governed, but the fact
e is that the governed are never asked
s for their consent, except long after
r things have been done in their name.
when there. is not the least chance
left for undoing them.
SThe people are heavily taxed with
every' bit of food they take into
their mouths, with every piece of
clothes they are buying, with the
most modest pleasure they try to
enjoy, taxed not by the state alone,
but by the masters of our means
of production, taxed without their
consent, taxed in spite of their pro
tests, taxed for private purposes. If
this is not autocracy, we should like
to see the latest definitiobi of the
But perhaps what Mr. Gompers
said about autocracy was not to be
considered as a statement of fact.
What he said was a prediction, per
haps, and the formulation of an
ideal. He wants autocracy every
where to understand that its day is
counted and that the day is about
dawning when democracy will be
come a reality in this world. If that
was the meaning, we are perfectly
willing to endorse Mr. Gompers' re
marks, and we sincerely hope that
organized labor will also indorse it,
and not only indorse it but help to
make the prediction come true
