"We live in a world where everybody is bound to take care of himself. Yet the English working class allows the landlord, capitalist, and retail trading classes, with their tail of lawyers, newspaper writers, etc., to take care of its interests. No wonder reforms in the interests of the workman come so slow and in such miserable dribbles.
The working people of England have but to will, and they are the masters to carry every reform, social and political, which their situation requires. Then why not make that effort?"
