Transcript ■frjrrw. 1 74 AN APPEAL TO RUSSIANS. in which you involuntarily participate when you obey Government That there should be a Russia such as the existing one, the Poles? Finns, Letts, Georgians, Tartars, Armenians, and others, have to be held in subjection. And to hold them in subjection, it is necessary to forbid them to live as they wish to, and if they disobey this order, they have to be punished and killed. Why should you take part in these evil deeds when you yourselves suffer from them. Let those who have need of such a Russia, dominating Poland, Georgia, Finland, and other lands—let them arrange it if they can. But for you, working people, this is not at all necessary. What you need is something quite else. You only need enough land, and that no one should forcibly take your property, or oblige your sons to go as soldiers, and above all that no one should compel you to do evil deeds. And these evils will cease, if only you refuse to obey the demands of the Government—demands which ruin and destroy both your bodies and your souls. u But how, without a Government, and when all live in separate Communes, are all large public affairs to be arranged ? How will the ways of communication, railways, telegraphs, steamers, the post, the higher educational establishments, the libraries, and trade be managed without a Government?" People are so accustomed to see the Government control all public affairs, that it seems to them that the work itself is done by Government, and that without Government it is impossible to organise High Schools, ways of communication, post-offices, libraries, or commercial relations. But this is not true. The largest public affairs, not only national but international, are arranged by private individuals without Governmental assistance. In this way all kinds cf international, postal, learned, commercial and industrial alliances are arranged. Governments not only do not aid these voluntarily organised unions, but when they take part in them they always hinder them. " But if you do not obey the Government, and do not pay taxes or supply soldiers, foreign nations will come and conquer you," add those who wish to rule over you. Do not believe it. Only live
