Whether this is self-determined, a matter of temperament and habit, or due to uncontrollable factors, it is largely responsible for the contempt in which they are popularly held. It naturally brings upon them the reproach and resentment everywhere visited upon "tramps" and "vagabonds." They rarely remain long enough in any one place to form local attachments and ties or anything like civic pride. They move from job to job, city...
Strana 48 - Workers of the world, unite. You have nothing to lose but your chains. You have a world to gain.
Strana 65 - Like the flimsy card houses that children raise, the present political governments of countries, of states, aye, of the city on the Potomac herself, will tumble down, their places taken by the central and subordinate administrative organs of the nation's industrial forces.
Strana 97 - No government which is FOR the profiteers can also be FOR the people, and I am for the people while the government is for the profiteers.
Strana 65 - As the slough shed by the serpent, which immediately appears in its new skin, the political state will have been shed; and society will simultaneously appear in its new administrative garb. The mining, the railroad, the textile...

Strana 40 - ... surrounded becomes intolerable to them, yet no degree of simplicity or austerity in the manner of living possible to them without disrupting all family and social ties can bring contentment. Consequently, every advantage they possess becomes a source of secret torment. They develop a psychic state differing not in kind, but only in degree, from that of the religious ascetics and mystics who in all ages have sought and found solace in self-abasement, living in caves, wearing hair shirts, and other...
Strana 32 - ... an intellectual system designed to vindicate the rights of the masses without denying great differences in men.

Strana 72 - Age of Reason," Ingersoll's lecture in pamphlet form, and Haeckel's " Riddle of the Universe" are typical. A surprisingly large number can quote extensively from Buckle's "History of Civilization" and from the writings of Marx. They quote statistics freely — statistics of wages, poverty, crime, vice, and so on — generally derived from the radical press and implicitly believed because so published with what they accept as adequate authority.
