The Socialist who would destroy the whole brutally materialistic system of civilisation is a far more deadly foe to English rule than those who imagine it possible to reconcile Irish freedom with insidious forms of economic subjection – landlord tyranny and capitalist fraud.

From the earliest revolutions to the Commune of Paris, the first blood has been shed by the possessing classes. We are not so childish as to imagine that the capitalists of the future won’t shed the blood of the workers in order to retain their ill-gotten gains.

While the rich proceed with their schemes for the aggrandisement of their class, the working class are betrayed by their representatives who spend their time in political intrigues for personal profit.

Legislation does not control the Lords of Industry; it is the Lords of Industry who control legislation. As we have often put it: The Class which rules industrially will rule politically.

Karl Marx – the ablest exponent of socialism the world has seen, and the founder of that school of thought which embraces all the militant socialist parties of the world.

Brothers and sisters, the fight must go on, and be it long or short the victory will be the victory of the rank and file.
