KICK OUT THE INCOMPETENT!
Mills, factories, shops are closing down. The capitalist owners have closed the
doors. Industry is at a standstill.
Why? Because no more profits are possible just now. Yet, the workers need
food, clothing, houses, all necessities. But the capitalist owners say NO, we will not
allow you to produce these things in OUR factories, our warehouses are full already.
You must starve and suffer until we have found a market.
Capitalism produces for sale not for use. When it cannot sell, the owners re
fuse to allow production to continue.
' Capitalism is incompetent to longer supply mankind with the necessities of life.
Either capitalist control of industry must go, and the workers' control of industry
substituted or the workers must remain as the half starved slaves of incompetent
Which shall, it be?
All power to the workers!
