Transcript ing people and the poorer peasants at the expense of the business and trading interests. Property and trade were nationalized, the business man and trader were ousted from the pursuit of their activities for private gain and compelled to perform the same function for the benefit of the masses as a whole. The working people throughout the world responded with quickening interest. The supremacy of the business and trading class in every nation was threatened. The new revolution was heaped with abuse and villification from the press and from prominent men in all the Allied nations. The class war is neither an aspiration nor a dogma. It is the outstanding fact of today. The conduct of newspapers and leading public men in the Allied countries towards Russia bears this out, for it shows every indication of war technique. In actual fact the whole machinery of "morale" was transferred from the making of war against the entire German population to the making of war against a part of the people of Russia—the working class and the government it had created. Atrocity stories, lurid tales of disorder, starvation, anarchy, dispatches predicting early military and civil collapse—the whole machinery for maintaining a favorable public psychology in war time—was turned from the German Kaiser and the German people to the revolutionary working masses of Russia. The maintenance of morale in war means the perversion of all standards of intellectual and moral honesty and integrity to the one end of "winning the war." This is precisely what has occurred in the Allied countries in regard to one class of the Russian people. The fact that this same policy was not confined to the unofficial property-owning class, but was pursued with even greated vigor by the governments of the Allied nations is merely proof of what Socialist thinkers have been saying for fifty years: Governments are at bottom part of the machinery by which the dominant class in any nation maintains its supremacy. When the governments of the United States, England and France threw their troops into Russia they were furnishing the Socialist with an object lesson of his favorite propaganda theme. When the authorities at Washington refused to issue licenses for the export of food and medicines to the suffering Russian masses, and when the Allied battleships and troops stopped shipments into Soviet territory it all helped to prove that the United States and the Allied governments were responsive to the interests of the property-owning class and willing to go to any extremes to prevent working class supremacy.
