Quotes. (1923)

From the October 1923 issue of the Socialist Standard 
Might is Right. 
  “Between equal rights force decides. Hence it is that in the history of capitalist production, the determination of what is a working day presents itself as the result of a struggle, a struggle between collective capital, i.e., the class of capitalists, and collective labour, i.e., the working class.”
Karl Marx.

  “The rich will not move without ‘capital’ ; a goad—I have and hold—you shall hunger and covet—until you are strong enough to force my hand.”


A rebuke for those who cannot think.

  “Science gives us the conscious domination over things and unconditional security in handling them.”
Joseph Dietzgen.


The Freedom of the Press!
  “Journalists are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks. They pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, our lives, are the property of other men.”
Jerome K. Jerome. (The New Witness. 9/2/23.)
