The Appeal to Reason says that half of the
world is now governed by socialists of "various
degrees". Yes, some of these socialists, like the
Appeal To Reason crowd, are thirty-third degree
traitors to the working class. Before the workers
can get rid of the capitalists they must first get
rid of a bunch of theae counterfeit comrades.
Samuel Gompers was introduced by the chair
man at a democratic campaign rally in New York
as the "man who has. done more for labor than
any other American." If he had said he has done
more to labor, he would have come closer to the
The confession of f.he editor of the Providence
Journal, which "exposel" so many German plots
and intrigues during the war, that his evidence
was all manufactured out of whole cloth, is an
other item for the attention of those trustful
workers who still have the habit of believing what
they read in the capitalist press.
The president of the league of Nations now
says article 10 might be dispensed with. So it
could; and the workers of the world will not be
harmed if all the other articles follow it into the
We read quite a little capitalist propaganda,
but we have never yet seen where they attempt
to show the consistency of their cry for "more
production" with the wholesale laying off of work
ers in the industrial centers.
The question of production will not trouble
the workers when they take possession of the in
dustries and put the bosses out. They will work
as long as is necessary to supply their own wants.
And when they stop giving the bulk of their pro
duct to idle parasites, they will find that a much
shorter workday will suffice.
Those union men who, locked out in the course
of the nation-wide, organized, union-smashing
campaign of the National Chamber of Commerce
will have time to reflect on the wisdom of Gom
pers' teaching that "the interests of capital and
labor are identical." .
From all parts of the country come the im
ports of wholesale discharges of workers and at
tempts to re-hire them at greatly reduced wages.
Here is another hard blow at the brotherhood of
Capital and Labor.
We haven't given any advice to the readers
of the Toiler for this election because we have no
candidates. We like Gene Debs well enough, but
we have to part company with him when he lines
up with the yellow socialists of America, the
blood-brothers of the socialists of Europe who be
trayed the revolutionary workers and delivered
them over to the capitalists.
Bolsheviks and monkeys are making the king
business an extra hazardous one.
Wall Street offers ten to one that Harding
wins, but it would be safe to bet 100 to 1 that the
workers lose no matter who wins.
