Eugene V. Deb's Daily Message
From NEIW YORK ('ALL. "I wish to say in the broadest pos sible way that I am opposing the systemn under which we live today because I bielieve it is subversive of the best interests of the people. I am not satisfied with things as they are, and I know that, no matter what admliiniictration is in power, even were it a socialist administration, there will be no material change in the condition of the people until we have a new social system based utpon the mutual economic interests of the whole people; until you and I and all of us collectively own those things that we collectively need and use. "That is a basic economic propo sition. As long as a relatively few -~~ I-- Pulpit Versus Proletariat ('ontributed by tII)NEY SEE. The mask is off. As all the prophets of the social revolution have predicted, the church machine is performing its econonmic function - --the preservation of capitalism. As the capitalist structure of society ap proaches its end--as hatred, chaos and fanaticism preceding the storm, increases---we see all the established institutions of the bourgeois order--- school, press and pulpit--standing on the side of the masters in opposition to the rising tide of working class consciousness. Rev. George D. WVolfe of Mounta:la View church has now placed his puny shoulder against the spokes of the great wheel of social evolution and is about to make an attempt to hold it motionless-- if not to turn it backward. But the" goodly rever end, like all social false-growths, is so terrified at the vision of the change which would prove hliii to be a sullperfluous organisn, lihat he throws all his Godly prudence to the winds and is now butting out his illmnmaculate-thou ght brains against the stone wall of aine, rational rca soning. Dr. Wolfe introduces his per verted view of the class-struggle with a vile tirade of the Rius.:ian bolshe viki, He says: "oI, neoi and Trot sky, paid agents of the IHun, have made of Russia ia blood-c(overed des o'ation, a land of starvation, terror and indiustrial, social, economic, po litical and religious ruin." This sentence contaiins two glar ing, deliberate min;-statements. The Gerlman agent story, already refuted, exploded when we learned how bol :,hevist prolpaganda &ndermiined the morale of the Teutonic armies. The fact that the soviet government has held piower for over 18 mionths and recently sent out a representative with it large sumi of moniey to buly machiinery, does not saEvor of either economiic or political ruin. Hle then speaks of the so-called Americans who, ini their avarice, greed and rejection of God, are help ing the ignorant and misguided foes who dwell beneath our flag, etc. Can it be that he says our Gene Delbs- our noble Gene who walked into a bourgeois slave-pen for the class he loved, is greedy or avaricious? We are next told' that there are millions of bolsheviki in oar coull try, but that we must tell them that thelre are "scores o( mlllilmis of us who believe ill God and who know and cherish the ideals that made America great. Dr. Wolfe has evi deutly forgotten that Amlleric:a was born in the midst of revolt against oppression. And as if we could halt bolshevism by loudly proclaiming to ORGANIZED LABOR The Bulletin Job printing department is now equipped to turn out your job printing.

"Is the conditi',n fair today, and Oltisfactory to the lthinklling man?" the bolsheviki that we believe in God. The reverend doctor here dis plays his appalling ignlorance of eco nlOlmic and social evolution, for lie asks lus to curtail bolshevisln, the product of years and centuries of evolution by shouting. "I believe in God." "And wv,." he gigs on, "will not turn the governnlllt of this great laund * over to the minor ity." This is ture, we shall not, for it is already ill the hands of the min ority, who steal our Iallots. Next conies his venonlmous conclu sion: ".We who love America do not. propose to let the bloody hands of that Godless, profligate, besotted, inbalanced, un-Anlerican crew, whose only liberty is license, whose God is their belly. who lilld earthly thingi , guide the helm of tile ship of state. We are not yet ready to elevate llmur der to a virt!ue, to nationalize our wolieln, to cast oult C('rint and His gospel. We will not suffer theses bloody hands to humiliate old glory "nd hoist the red flag of ruin in its place of honor and power." The writer, being a class-conscious proletarian. considered it his duty to his class to answer the vile, filthy lies and mnisrelpresentations of our great cause, and there is not a point in D)r. Wolfe's argument that any socialist cannot shatter with case and conviction. Let us not be distracted by thle feeble yapping of these pluny little divine atavismls, lily comlrlades, for they are not intelligent enlough to do us any great 'harmn. They !many tear their hair, shake their fists and -hout their mletaphysical nllOSense, blut tile great world proletariat moves on, glacier-like, steady, irresistible. Dr. Wolfe, you are bearing out the prcdicitions of Karl Marx, that as capitalisml nears its end the mnasters will snarl, show their fangs, and, illn their satiate greed for wealth and p)ower, revert to the primitive abys Inal least. The filth you hurl at the oppressed today is the same that the P'harisees flung at the gentle Naz erene because the sweet, sad ray of truth whichl he always shed, stripped them of their seemIing virtue and ex posed their disgusting hypocrisy in all its hideous nakedness. You camne near to tile truth, sir, when you said, "Whose God is their belly." The heartless systemn which you upllold llhas made the stomlllach incentive the ruler of the wage slave. You say we m1ind only earthly, mla terial things. Yes we do, for bol slhevisln is our religion---the lmodern religion- -tlle tangible faith, the re ligion of life, Inot death, of youth, not age, of love not h1ate. We shall be a free people with a free religiol.l We shall worship and enjoy the trees, tile flowers, the nlurllllring brooks and all that n1at1ure gave lus to love. W\e shall enjoy creative genius, music, art, poetry, hlere on earth instead of slaving out our souls for tile promise of life after death. We shall live out our lives in their I:ichl lulllness and ill ;ervice o o1 r fellows-our equals-- and( then if there is an aller life---which you cannlot tell, and I cannot tell--we shall go to it witllout fear and with out regret. We shall all labor, and we shall all receive Ihe full fruits thereof, and our slogan--the sloganl that has turned your cult againsllt free Rutssia--shall be "absolute flreedom of religion, but not a penny for preaching it." You mllay go oil, Dri. \Voltfe, as we know you will, preaclling your hate. but relmemlber that the Nazerone tanght only love. Go on living in case upon the labor of tlhose to whlloml you preach your suellfstitiou 1 dog nlas, but remlember that the one timlle when the Carpenter of Nazereth lost his tempelr was when he beheld thile fattened exploiters of the devout squatting ill his temple. Preach your blatant chau insni, but remlclll ber his words of love for all m1en, "Let nlo an say that lie loveth hii country best." You cannot harml us, )r.. Wolfe, andt you are hurling yourself mailly into oblivion, for tile great crllcible of hulnanity is agailn aIt the nlelting point, and you and your c(ult shatl soo0n be 1)oredc off with thle dross leaving only tihe inune gotld. ... .... . . . . . . . . ..E l A \..... . - ERECTED BY HUNS IN 1871 sriton oi n t that was built in 1S71, near Denklnml, Germany.
