Page 144 - West for a job, and had never located them since; if your job never kept you long enough in a place to qualify you to vote; if you slept in a lousy, sour bunk-house, and ate food just as rotten as they could give you and get by with it; if deputy sheriffs shot your cooking cans full of holes and spilled your grub on the ground ; if your wages were lowered on you when the bosses...
Page v - Yet, O stricken heart, remember, O remember How of human days he lived the better part. April came to bloom and never dim December Breathed its killing chills upon the head or heart. Doomed to know not Winter, only Spring, a being Trod the flowery April blithely for a while, Took his fill of music, joy of thought and seeing, Came and stayed and went, nor ever ceased to smile. Came and stayed and went, and now when all is finished, You alone have crossed...
Page 66 - Don't you know that some man with eloquent tongue, without conscience, who did not care for the Nation, could put this whole country into a flame? Don't you know that this country from one end to another believes that something is wrong?
Page 177 - The dynamic psychology of today describes the present civilization as a repressive environment. For a great number of its inhabitants, a sufficient self-expression is denied. There is for those who care to see, a deep and growing unrest and pessimism. With the increase in knowledge is coming a new realization of the irrational direction of economic evolution. The economists, however, view economic inequality and life degradation as objects, in truth, outside the science. Our value concept is a price...
Page 71 - The temperature during the week of the riot had remained near 105 degrees and though the wells were a mile from where the men, women, and children were picking, and their bags could not be left for fear of theft of the hops, no water was sent into the fields. A lemonade wagon appeared at the end of the week, later found to be a concession granted to a cousin of the ranch owner. ' Local Wheatland stores were forbidden to send delivery wagons ' to the camp grounds. It developed in the state investigation...
Page 4 - You have heard the call of the off-shore wind And the voice of the deep-sea rain ; You have heard the song — how long — how long? Pull out on the trail again! The Lord knows what we may find, dear lass, And the Deuce knows what we may do — But we're back once more on the old trail, our own trail, the out trail, We're down, hull down, on the Long Trail — the trail that is always new!
Page 146 - Western casual laborer, any reflections on his gratitude or spiritual buoyancy seem ironical humor. An altogether unwarranted importance has been given to the syndicalistic philosophy of the IWW A few leaders use its phraseology. Of these few, not half a dozen know the meaning of French syndicalism or English guild socialism. To the great wandering rank and file, the IWW is simply the only social break in the harsh search for work that they have ever had; its headquarters the only competitor of the...
Page 65 - This is not confined to some of the state governments and those of some of the towns and cities. We know that something intervenes between the people of the United States and the control of their own affairs at Washington. It is not the people who have been ruling there of late. Why are we in the presence, why are we at the threshold, of a revolution? Because we are profoundly disturbed by the influences which we see reigning in the determination of our public life and our public policy. There was...
Page 174 - ... of economic life are the same as those of the life of art, of vanity and ostentation, of war and crime, of sex. Economic life is merely the life in which instinct gratification is alleged to take on a rational pecuniary habit form. Man is not less a father with a father's parental instinct-interest just because he passes down the street from his home to his office. His business raid into his rival's market has the same nai-ve charm that tickled the heart of his remote ancestor when in the night...
Page 113 - First, that these instinct tendencies are persistent, are far less warped or modified by the environment than we believe ; that they function quite as they have for a hundred thousand years ; that they, as motives in their various normal or perverted habit form, can at times dominate singly the entire behavior and act as if they were a clear character dominant.
