Work For Public Ownership
Work For Public Ownership.
We must select, and then elect to Parliament, representatives pledged to work for public ownership, viz:—the acquirement of the complete public ownership of every important page 21 industry. A private enterprise Government and Parliament will not move in this matter. The employers will not sanction any proposal that will interfere with their class privileges and customary private profits, no matter how fair, reasonable or just; such considerations do not count in business, consequently there is only one course left for the people, and that is to elect a majority of our representatives to Parliament, pledged to support the idea of extending the functions of the State as indicated.
