Transcript The pitting of the young workers against their older comrades to whom they are related by bonds of class, of common misery, and of blood, is another especially crass sign of the miserable condition of the working class youth under capitalism. The capitalists make use of the young workers to cut wages, to break the strikes of the adult workers, and to rob the adult workers of their jobs. The economic servitude of the young worker is closely connected with the spiritual oppression enforced by the bourgeoisie.

The militaristic spirit is intended to make the young workers the willing victims of imperialist slaughters, and in many countries the infusion of a militaristic spirit begins in the preparatory imhtary organizations of children of school age The capitalist military service turns the young workers into automatons to be used against their class brothers at home and abroad.
