Passing of Capitalism
By Isador Ladoff
Why ilo<-n capitalism flourish in our j
midst i ik>■ ;i renomous fungoid? why
diii tin' greatest achievements of the t
human genius in the COOQUMt Of dead
matter result in the actual return to
barbarism? Simply because our phil
osophy of life is behind our progress
in the domain of purely material or
industrial activity. Simply hecause j
th<> modern method! of production
and distribution of wealth are far I
more advanced than our ideals and
conceptions about right and wrong. ]
Our methods of economic activity are
incorporating (although incompletely)
the progressive principle of socializa
tion, while our philosophy of life, our i
moral Ideals, remain still individual
istic or anarchistic.
In this Incongruity, in this contra- j
diction between our conceptions of j
human inter-relations on one hand I
and actual material conditions on the;
other, is concealed the center of gray-
Ity of all social problems of the day. j.
This incongruity and contradiction is .
felt instinctively by everybody. Very j
few, however, have a clear vision of'
the hidden causes of these phenorne-1
na. Deep is the general unrest, broad !
is the general nervousness of the peo- '
pie, obvious are the symptoms of our
social abnormalities, absurdities and '
crimes, but very few penetrate be- !
neath the mere surface of things.
Dissatisfaction permeates every
class of the people, and many are the
remedies proposed and advocated by
all kinds of so-called reformers whose J
name is legion. The middle class "re-!
formers" of the democraticpopulistic
stamp, those blind leaders of the j
blind, preach reaction, return to semi
medieval individualism, as a means of
escaping the perplexities of our mod
em Industrial conditions. Their
watchword is: "Backward, backward, !
Don Hodrigo!" Another variety of j
half-hearted, one-Idea reformers try j
to concentrate all their attention on
some single panacea, bound to save
humanity in twenty-four hours after
its inauguration. Such are the pro
hibitionists, single-taxers, etc. All
these would-be saviors of humanity
lack historic sense and philosophic
training of mind. They are delight
fuily puerile in their Utopian faith In
the miraculous power of legislation
on paper, and do not see the forest,
because stubbornly insisting on look
ing at one tree only. They imagine
themselves to be Joshuas, command-
Ing the sun of industrial evolution to
stop at the Aialon of dwarfed capital
Socialism has another more sensi
ble and cheering message for human
ity. Its watchword is "Forward! For
ward!" It recognizes the absurdity
of all the attempts to turn the wheel
of historical development backward,
it considers as Insane the advice to
undo all the marvelous achievements
of science applied to arts. It is pri
marily an educational movement. Its
task consists in teaching people to
conform their philosophy of life, their
social ideals and moral principles to
the new Industrial conditions.
The economic structure of our mod
ern society is clearly drifting towards
the socialization of industry, and So
cialism is preparing the people for
this revolutionary change. The time
is near when the tools of production
and raw material will be turned over
to the people engaged in production,
when production will be carried on,

THE SOCIALIST STATE
AND THE INDIVIDUAL
By Karl Kantsby
To get even a questionable intellec
tual introduction to the public re
quires an expensive technical appara
itus an.l extensive co-operative pow
ers. The individual cannot here act
for himself. Does that, however, not
mean that here again the alternative
to capitalist industry is national in
dustry? If this is so, must not the
icentering of so great and important a
part of the intellectual life in the
'state threaten in the highest degree
ithat intellectual life with uniformity
iand stagnation? It is true that the
governmental power will cease to be
a class organ, but will it not still be
the organ of a majority? Can the
Intellectual life be made dependent
, upon the decisions of the majority?
Would not every new truth, every
I new conception and discovery
ibe comprehended and thought out by
the insignificant minority? Does not
this now order threaten to bring the
:best and keenest of the thinkers in
I the various spheres into continuous
conflict with the proletarian regime?
. . . Hem is certainly an important
but not an insoluble problem. . . .
|The state will not be the only lead-/
Ing and means-granting organ which
will come into cosideration, but there
iwill also be MUNICIPALITIES.
ThrouM.h these all uniformity and ev
ery domination of the intellectual life
by central power is excluded. As an
other Bubltituto for the capitalist in
dustry in individual production, still
other organizations must be consid
ered; those of FREE UNIONS which
will serve art and science and the
public life and advance production in
these spheres in the moat diverse
ways, or undertake them directly; as
even today we have countless unions
which bring out plays, publish news
papers, purchase artistic works, pub
lish writings, fit out scientific expe
ditions, etc. ... I expect that
these free unions will play an even
more important role in the intellec
Class loyalty, education and organi
zation along the lines of the great
class struggle alone will free the
working class from the wage slavery.

Rev. J. Stitt Wilson
Preachers of the gospel frequent
ly urge individual salvation as an an
swer to the social problem. Let me
state with utmost emphasis that no
individualistic spiritual experience
can lift you out of the social and eco
nomic relations of the social system
in which you live. There is no reli
gious experience, no spiritual vision
of God, as proposed by mystics, or
MJethodists, or Christian Scientists,
or Salvationists, or any sort, which
can release you from the grasp of
I impeach capitalism as the su
preme anti-Christ of modern times. I
take my stand on the life and spirit
and teaching of Jesus and declare
that capitalism is a menace to every
purpose and program of the Christ.
Any man or church which professes
to offer the Word of God to the souls
of men and yet leaves the American
plutocracy in the saddle on the backs
of the people is deluding the people.
Any church in this city, or any city,
which at this late date is still at
peace with capitalism is a moral and
spiritual tomb. The socialization of
industry—democracy in fundamental
equipment of society—in short, So
cialism, is the logic of Christianity.
And here I took my stand long years
Socialism implies that the individ
uals who make up society should, in
their collective capacity, possess all
the instruments of production, and
thus prevent the evils arising from
the present industrial system. It re
quires that the process of production
and distribution should be regulated
not by competition, with self-interest
for the moving principle, but by so
ciety as a whole for the good of so
ciety.—Palgrave's Dictionary of Polit

The campaign to get owners of
large factories and stores to get their
employes into the militia to learn how
to slaughter each other in strikes and
in Wall Street manufactured wars,
bore fruit in New York yesterday
when the employes of the Wana maker
store were led into forming a machine
gun company of the Seventy-first Reg
iment, N. G., N. Y.
Employes of the Wanamaker store
have been formed into a military
company for many years, drilling on
the eleventh floor of the store build

store employes in the military com
pany are sent to island Heights, N.
