Morethan 2,000,000 Russian women between the ages of 18 and
45 are within the areas under Bolshevik control which have formally
passed laws declaring for the anarchistic doctrine of "free love.
In the province of Moscow more than 1000 women committed
suicide in one month rather than submit to the decree of the soviet
making them "public property." j
There is a large class of shallow thinkers, all over the world, who
imagine they can improve conditions on earth by abrogating the
law ! of "meum and teura," or mine and thine.
Nobody, according to this communistic doctrine, has a right to
posses? anything that comebody else has to do without.
. The result is that in time everything seizable is seized, everything
consumable is consumed. Nobody has anything to do anything with,
so nothing is done. And that which starts with the material pos
sessions of the race ends in spiritual and" moral nihilism.
There are but a few steps from state expropriation of private prop
erty to state enslavery of women.
Russia today illustrates the effect of the confiscation theory. Once
put into practice this diabolical doctrine of Proudhon and you can
not limit its scope any more than you can balance a falling boulder
' in midair half-way between the brink and the foot of the precipice.
In Russia the first step of the Soviets was to commandeer all land
ed estates. The land having no fixed proprietors, nobody cultivated
it. Or if a few peasants were left to till their holdings it was only
that the red troops from Petrograd and Moscow might have pillage
and looting grounds. Naturally no second harvest was forthcoming.
The bourgeoisie were the next to feel the force of government by
confiscation. When they had been dispossessed their brains were scat
tered among the proletariat literally with clubs and crowbars.
Well-dressed people were robbed of their clothes to communize this
social inequality. Bake shops and banks were looted indiscrimi
nately. As the ' process developed starvation waited around the
corner for the robber and the robbed.alike. Now they are shooting
aick people on the streets of Petrograd in the interest of food con
servation. That is the outcome of the Proudhon doctrine as applied
to alleviating the material needs of the poor.
But, horrible as this sounds, the moral degeneracy brought about
by the soviet councils makes a chapter almost too disgusting to be
credible, but authenticated by public documents. Woman has been
added to the list covered by the doctrine that .''property is rob
bery. The .worst decrees of Marat iand Robespierre during the
r Reign of Terror in Paris never dared to go so far in degrading the
glory of womanhood as have the soviet councils in Bolshevik Russia.
Here are a few of the provisions for the public ownership of women
as prescribed and published by the council at Saratoff. '
'(6.) All women, according to this decree, are exempted from
private ownership and are proclaimed . to be the property of the
whole nation. .
"(7.) The: distribution "and management of appropriated women
are transferred to the Saratoff Anarchist Club." , .
o nr !,. u .....
than three times a week for three hours, observing the rurles speci
fied below."- i J
"(16.) The children born are given to an institution for training
after they are one month old." . ,A
The provisions are twenty-two in all and shamefully make women
a public utility, like a sewer or a street car. The degradation of it
, is almost unthinkable, but it has come to Russia.

commnnizing of womanhood, to brine "the greatest good to the
