DebsSpeak: Workingman To Workingman

“The working hand is what is needed for the capitalist’s tool, and so the human must be reduced to a hand.

No head, no heart, no soul – simply a hand ….

This is capitalism!

And this system is supported alternatively by the republican party and the democratic party.

These two capitalist parties relieve each other in support of the capitalist system, while the capitalist system relieves the working class of what they produce.”

“Heads and hands, hearts and souls, are the heritage of all.

Full opportunity for full development is the unalienable right of all.

He who denies it is a tyrant; he who does not demand it is a coward; he who is indifferent to it is a slave; he who does not desire it is dead.”

(Eugene V. Debs, “A Word With You, Mr. Workingman”, Appeal to Reason, July 23, 1904)
