The working cluas and the employing class have nothing In common. There can be no peace as long as hunger and want are found amsng mi Hons of working people, and the few, who make up the employing clam, have an1 the geed thine of life. Between these two classes a struggle mast g on until the workers of the world oregalse as a class, take possession of the earth and the msa chinery of production, and abolish the wags system. We and that the centering of the msnagsamat of industries into fewer and fewer heads makes the trade unlons unable to cope with the oever growing power of the emplorying class. Ihe trade unions foster a state of affairs which aUowa eme set of workers to be pitted agalinst anether aset ef workers In the same lndustry, thereby helplng do feat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid in employlng class to mislead the workers into the belief that the workinag class have interests In common with their employers. These conditions can be changed and the later eat of the working class upheld enly by am orsal. zation formed In such a way that all its mnembers ln any one Industry, or in all Industries, if neceO sry, cease work whenever a strike or lockout is on in any departmbnt thereof, thus making am injury to one an Injury to all. Instead of the conservative motto: "A fair day's wage for a fair's day's work," we mut inscribe on our banner the revolutionary watchword: "Abolition of the wage system. It is the historic mission of the working class to do away with capitalism. The army of proe duction must be organized, not enly for the every day strugglel with capitalists, but also to carry on production when capitalism shall have been over thrown.
