nomic condition that denies our right
to be on the earth until we make a
bargain with some earth owner to
grant us the privilege of staying here
for a price. If we would prosper we
must bow the knee, and,iLprominent
enough to attract notice, lie and steal
to placate the monopolies that have
the power to force us off the earth.
All this would not be worth writ
ing but for the ignorance that in
duces unemployed men who have the
ballot and the power if they would
get together to deprive the monop
olist of. his power for harm. If their
ignorance could be replaced by the
knowledge that is easily acquired,
they would prefer to listen to Miss
Addams and other people who could
advise them to resort to other means
than fighting policemen who are as
ignorant of human rights as them
selves. A wrongful system of taxation that
robs labor of most of its earnings
when it works and a system of land
ownership that denies the right of
people to be here on earth is the
primal cause of poverty and unem
ployment. The starving cannot
change that condition by humiliating
great-hearted women: like Miss Ad
dams and marching through the
streets. Geo. V. Wells, 6050 South
