MIGHT IS RIGHT.

“Between equal rights force decides.

KARL MARX.

“The rich will not move without ‘capital’ ; a goad—I have and hold—you shall hunger and covet—until you are strong enough to force my hand.”
GEORGE MEREDITH.

THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS !

“Journalists are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks. They pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, our lives, are the property of other men.”
JEROME K. JEROME. (The New Witness. 9/2/23.)

A rebuke for those who cannot think.

JOSEPH DIETZGEN.
