Christmas is over and once again the New Year is being ushered in, and it is a time for ' good resolutions and for thinking in a general way, and while occupied in thought one occurred to me which was this: You should do more than you have done to cause men to think, and I cast alxnit in my mind for a topic and this struck my fancy for a beginning; "'Patriotism. What is it?" No doubt some youth who has been taught to revere this land as the home of the free and the brave, will, if he casts his eyes about him, find it is the laud of the tyrant and the slave. It probably will check to a certain degree that zeal which is at fever heat, and is so adaptable to youths. Brothers, you are taught to believe it is right for you to go out upon the battle field and there raise your arm and shoot down your fellowinen. You say, "Oh, well, I am fighting for my country. ' ' Yes, that is what is drilled into you by a subsidised press, politic ians, school teachers and even- some clergymen will tell you that if you are killed in battle God, will not hold you guilty of murder, even though you kill many. Let's see if you have a country before you take the fatal step of joining the army or militia. How much land? How many mills? How many factories? How many mines? How many steel and iron plants? And last but not least, how many railroads do you own or are intersted in? None. Well, then where is your country and what are you fighting for or contem plate fighting for? If you have a coun try to fight for you must be owner in that country, or at least must own some property. There are two classes represented in this country. One is the owning class, or capitalist. The other is the non-owner of wealth, or creator of wealth, the worker, and as he owns nothing but his labor power and has to go into the labor markets and compete for a job. What right has such a man to join the organized murderers tind shoot down his fellow men in the interest of the capitalist? Greed, for this country belongs to the capitalist and not you, as you believe. It is to the interest of the capitalist class to make you think you have a country to right for, but you haven't. Please bear this in mind. If you have ever been in a strike no doubt you have seen the injunction nsed to in timidate you and force you to return to work. If it is your country why al low these injunctions to be served on you or your class? And when the civ il arm of the law fails to intimidate and drive you back then will begin a reign of terror, created by the tools of capitalism in the shape of detectives or thugs, and the police, and constab ulary will also join in the melee, with but one object in view, i. e. , to force you to submit to the tyrannies of the capitalist. If it is your country why don't you call a halt to such atrocities? Then as the courts and their hench men fail to subdue you, they will call to force you at the muzzle of the gun andjthe point of the bayonet those organized murderers which go by the name of militia and soldiers, but whose only business is to shoot down their fellowinen in the interest of capitalism. If it is your country why don't you stop such red-handed murder? Then again capitalism wants foreign markets and lays a conspiracy and in veigles some foreign nation in war. See those red-handed murderers sail across the Salt Pond, overjoyed with the privilege of shooting down their brothers across the waters, in order that capitalism may prosper on the misery of those on the other side of the glole. Are those fellows fighting for their country -. No, they have no country. They are slaves of the worst type. If this is your country and that of the working class why don't you stop such wholesale slaughter? It is becansi) you and the balance of the workers have no country. Therefore you can't stop this wholesale slaugh ter. The laboring class has lcen de frauded out of their country through the laws the capitalist or their tools have made, and they represented both Republican and Democratic parties. These parties are pledged to capital ism, and they, in order to raise them selves to power and self -aggrandisement, have stolen by legislation your birthright. That is your country. True patriotism lies in teaching your class how to regain their birthright, viz., their country. Vote for S ial isui. Teach it and reach it. You have nothing to lose but your chains. I Vou have a world to gain. i THE ( RANK. dent. Nashville. Tenn.. .Ian. . Unit. ! At'.st . .1. H. AMBRosi;. Secretary. I s,at.'
