Employers in New York ordered their workmen to
march, on penalty ol losing .'i day s wages. ( oercion was
carried to even a greater extent in the campaign of 1896,
when factories were closed and hankers put on the screws
to scare and force toilers to vote as they dictated upon
threats of unemployment and hunger.
The power of the few is even greater today than twenty
yen's ago. Our ruling plutocracy can bring on a panic
whenever it desires witness the panic of 1893 to force the
restoration of high tariff, the panic of 1907, to scare the
president into permitting the steel trust to absorb a rival,
the industrial depression of 191.'$ to restore popular ex
ploitation. AVar means a golden harvest for the powerful
few; militarism, scarcely .smaller profits, hence we see
"preparedness" capitalized, as a political issue and the
might and power of Wall street's influence used to force it
upon the nation.
A navy is an offensive rather than a defensive weapon.
I fence the clamor for the world's greatest navy is not for
defense, but; oflense. A great army is not needed to pro
ject the nation from imaginary foes, but it is needed if tho
United States is to follow in the footsteps of decadent
feudalism and try to rule the world by force in order to
enrich our trusts not only a great army is needed, but the
greatest, hence the effort to enforce universal military
Ah offensive preparedness has become a political issue
through the dictates of big business, we will probably be
treated to a repetition of the compulsion of the MeKinley
