Transcript I GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 55 B.—New Factors after the War. 1. From every corner of the country, and from every section of society there will come, after the war, a cry for increased production in order that we may recover from our losses, re-establish our trade, meet the new keen competition of other nations, pay our way, and maintain the Standard of Life. Thus, there will be a more powerful inducement than ever before to reorganise our factories. 2. During the war, the old industrial conditions have been broken up. Both protective and restrictive Trade Union regulations have been abandoned; millions of male and female workers have been initiated into new processes; new machinery has been freely installed; masters and men alike have become less conservative and more adaptable. After the war, industrial conditions will be exceptionally fluid. Thus, there will be a greater opportunity for reorganisation than ever before. 3. During the war, despite its grave failures, the community as a whole has proved itself competent to organise industry in ways beyond both the power and the genius of the private entrepreneur. Public opinion has welcomed, or, rather, demanded, this organisation. As producers and as consumers the people will look for a continuance of State control and organisation in the crisis of Peace. Thus, there will be a greater facility than ever before for solving the problem of reorganisation. C.—How Can we Increase our Output ? 1. The Duty of Labour. " The Round Table " has recently told us that the " moral for labour ' after the war is " maximum production." Working-class students should ask themselves seriously how this ■' moral for labour '' is likely to be enforced when the war ends. If Labour is not prepared with "a more excellent way," it may find that in the coming Peace it is subjected to more " driving," with even less protection, than it has suffered during the war! In what way, under a Capitalist system, can Labour agree to co-operate in increasing output without depriving itself of effective guarantees against a lowering of the Standard Rate?
