Excerpt from The Western Comrade, Vol. 2: August 1, 1914
The right of the individual and of the mass is being slowly hewn out of a cosmos of ignorance. Surely, every individual will some day function normally. Until then, men will struggle for free expression. But the anti-social must go. The days of the aristocracy of church, state, intellect, school, home and barroom are numbered. No man has the liberty to poison another, and he who makes and sells liquor is handling poison, says science.
In the battle in which the revolutionary worker is engaged, he can use all his powers. The overworked and underpaid Workers are too busy toiling to, do much thinking. But the misery and needs of the day must find expression. Year in and year out, the vast army of toilers go forward to their grave.
