Strana 87 - Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests in common with their employers. These conditions can be changed and the interest of the working class upheld only by an organization formed in such a way that all its members in any one industry, or in all industries if necessary, cease work whenever a strike or lockout is on in any department thereof, thus making an injury to one an injury to all. Instead of the conservative...
Strana 160 - As a revolutionary organization the Industrial Workers of the World aims to use any and all tactics that will get the results sought with the least expenditure of time and energy. The tactics are determined solely by the power of the organization to make good in their use. The question of 'right' and 'wrong
Strana 65 - We mean no conflict with legitimate enterprise, no antagonism to necessary capital, but men in their haste and greed, blinded by self-interests, overlook the interests of others and sometimes violate the rights of those they deem helpless.
Strana 63 - The decree went forth that labour was to cease until the Charter was the law of the land : the mine and the mill, the foundry and the loom-shop were until that consummation to be idle : nor was the mighty pause to be confined to these great enterprises. Every trade of every kind and description was to be stopped : tailor and cobbler, brushmaker and sweep, tinker and carter, mason and builder, all, all...
Strana 87 - It is the historic mission of the working class to do away with capitalism. The army of production must be organized, not only for the everyday struggle with capitalists, but also to carry on production when capitalism shall have been overthrown. By organizing industrially we are forming the structure of the new society within the shell of the old.
Strana 87 - The trade unions foster a state of affairs which allows one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests in common with their employers.
Strana 103 - To hell with the courts,' because I believe that my right to live is far more sacred than the sacred right of property that you and your kind so ably defend. "I don't tell you this with the expectation of getting justice, but to show my contempt for the whole machinery of law and justice as represented by this and every other court. The prosecutor lied, but I will accept it as a truth and say again, so that you, Judge Sloane, may not be mistaken as to my attitude: 'To hell with your courts; I know...
Strana 76 - The objects of this organization shall be to unite the various persons working in and around the mines, mills, and smelters into one central body...
Strana 182 - Our bourgeois apologist admitting as he must that the present possessors of land and capital hold possession of them simply by right of superior force, can hardly refuse to admit the right of the proletariat organised to that end to take possession of them by right of superior force. The only question remaining is how ? And the only answer is how you can. Get what you can that tends in the right direction, by parliamentary means or otherwise, bien entendu, the right direction meaning that which curtails...
