Why free speech matters love of one s country is not Only a virtue but is As natural As it is to breathe its air. Languages. Custom scenery methods of making a living family relations friendships established make up so lamps a part of one s personality Are so essential to Quot out satisfaction that Only a few of us can be Happy any length of time on foreign soil. Perhaps it is because love of country is so spontaneous and so generally accepted As a virtue that it is the prize Pawn of designing interest who win by playing on our prejudices. If they can succeed in making what sounds like a majority Noie their cause and their plan Are set Forth a inking the country s interest and he who. Because his love of country is so Strong Speaks out against their plan. Is branded As disloyal. Our most reactionary writers for in Lance Are telling us now that the chief trouble with the Small nations of Europe is rampant nationalism. A Poland granted her natural territory by both the allies and Russia decides that she Oucht to be us Hie As she was when poles ruled part of Ruda. Undoubtedly those poles who con it eled peace and attention to re oration became a a traitors while glory for Poland filled the air. But Low if news reports Are Correct thousands of polish men who might have Laired on farm and in factory Are dead several times a Many More Are permanently injured the pantry has been swept clean for War. And even if they had won Only death dust and ashes of Normal life would have been the result. Poland Case. Jugo Sluviak Scase Roumania Scase looks Plain to our writer. They Are pretty certain that France has stepped too far. But How about us the same writers will Tell us that absolute submission to those raking the big noise is patriotism and imply that support of the same k and of forces that Are wrecking Europe is love of country Here. We can see How Many another nation might have been saved from those who fucked its i be blood for private advantage if its citizen had heard All Counselor impartially. It i difficult to imagine How a nation could be saved otherwise. The muzzling of opinion the i becomes for a nation the height of Folly for the muzzle is As Likely to silence a Prophet As to remove irritating gamblers. A there is no such thing As a country says the Farmers Sun of Toronto. And we must confess that this statement of the official paper of the United Farmers of Ontario puzzled us until we had read further into the editorial. We thought we could name Many such but Here is the explanation in which we believe both town and country Dweller can find a Good Deal to think about a there Are towns in the country but they Are City towns. They Are dominated by the City spirit. In the contest Between the City and the country they Are the outposts of the City strategically placed like the fortress colonies of ancient Rome to command the territory about them. A in the rivalry and contest which is con tartly Carrier on bet we i Rural and Urban idea nothing is More important for the country than that it capture and control the villages and Small towns. They ought to be centers of Rural thought and Enterprise upon whose streets Ami with whose institutions the Farmer should not feel himself a stranger. It should be his town and he should be at Homo in it. A at the present time every town is wildly ambitious to become a City. Many of them have almost ruined themselves in the attempt mortgaging themselves to the utmost limit to attract factories which often play out and leave the town to pay the Bill. Most town people Hope some Day to move to the City. I he most acce Stu merchants doctors and financiers go a up higher to the City. The City is the admiration Ami envy of the country can any one say that this Canadian is wrong in his main Points or that they May hold Good in Canada but not Here we la believe he has hit upon the Basic eau # of much of the reported clash Between the organized Farmer and the country town. Instead of approaching the City with the Point of View of the country our typical town approaches the Farmer probably without giving the matter deep thought with the Point of View of the big City and its dominating interests. A i in that makes it Hart for him to fit in with others to have a got in bad with parents or teachers or to feel disgraced before his natural playmates easily drives a boy to the companionship of other a outlaws a and when he is once in such a gang it Odds with the world about it it is easy for rather innocent review and comment i on various topics i my Tiuis it it in min i it Mihn in i it Hinny mini Ihnn it ii a in it a i it nmn it my Mimi Muti a what other editors Are thinking about War s remedy the people of Europe Are too tired of War and will not any longer re reaction manifesting itself through ing states who in turn finance i Lite my Schick t0 on t0 serious offence 8pond to the propaganda of the bloc political coercion and repression and business through Chicago and Boston a Pheuy Thieve it Leml t0 Bur.

Now imagine a perfect Farmer organization free of the Suppo de arguments again to the league doing this very things perfect leaders perfect Busine Quot methods perfect in All Pointe of hone to or morality.

We do not claim perfection for the organized Farmers we a k you Only to realize that the same charge would ii made if they were perfect. Hence weight should be Given to these general charges Only on the most searching proof and not on Mere assertion by politicians or the kept pre s. War took 40,000,000 live stat i tics compiled by an English society on the re suits of the world War place the to of life at 40,-000,000 people of the a 10,000 too or More were slain in Battle or died of wounds and of disease there. The figures for the different european countries run As follows e Lupean Russia. 18,000,000 Germany. 6.800,000 Autria Hungary. 5,800,006 France. 3,840,000 Italy. 2 280,000 great Britain. 1,850,000 Serbia. 1.650,000 Roumania. 510, Belgium. 375,000 Bulgaria. 275.000 Tolje figures of course include women and children As will As men engaged in combatant or noncombatant sender whoa death Are immediately traceable to the War anti the books of death Are not closed since every Day poverty starvation and disease due to the War still take a heavy toll of human life. Also of the population of the War countries a hich escaped death the majority Are probably impaired in health and working ability by reason of the War Strain. Reaction Hopes to crush labor de ing financed through the Reserve stroy its rights to function through Banks and Colton is still around 35 its Bona fide organization and Rem cents a Pound. For Cotton to be seller it helpless through in american ing for More than Wool is most a legislation.

As a result the National Wool lain it a will struggle to the last hour growers association is in a mad and to the limit of its Power to Safe scramble to get the Federal Reserve guard the Progress it has gained the Board to take Over the financing of Libertie it has won.

Present Day martyrs those who would like to follow the example of the saints of old in standing for the truth As they see it even at the expense of martyrdom have As much Opportunity today As Ever. But they must Alec remember that the saints of old did not work with general approval or the Praise of what then corresponded to our Leisure class and the kept press. On july 2, Rev. Nelson Aregood a Baptist Clergyman was whipped by a a a citizens committee Quot of Pine Bluff. Ark., because he dared to come to that town to speak before Railroad employees. A Friend with him receive the same treatment. Perhaps this later Day Martyr was stirring up the people but we remember this was the chief offence on which Christ was convicted by a court which Combine both the political and religious leadership of his Day. If a Man were to go to steel Trust territory to preach against working seven Days in the week he would be found guilty of unlawful assemblage if not run Down by mounted policemen before arrest. If he were to speak against child labor in Cotton Mills in out hem Cotton Mill territory he would find himself arrested As a vagrant and Force into a labor Camp. If he were to whisper in Many a Kan As or Montana town that formers have a right to organize he would he fortunate to get off with tar and feathers. Ami everywhere anti in a walks of life we can find in who Are persecuted Lecause they fait to agree with the Standard dictated by the most unscrupulous. Yet we hear a lot of noise to the effect that our country is perfect in . Needing Only unquestioned support for things As they Are. Perhaps the world has alway appeared perfect to those on top but the great heroes of Teh a t did not accept the standards of the a on top people. Dust rial Field or on the political Field they will struggle on. Victories already achieved give the Promise of victories still to be won. As a result of the plan being worked out now that of getting Western Banks to finance the Wool through the Federal Reserve Banks Wool growers say Boston financiers will lose control of the Wool Industry and that it will be entered in the Many is the husband who is so concerned with thoughts of his own thai he leaves unanswered the wife a ques it just As the Eastern financiers tons. Lost control of Cotton. And Many More the Wiser ones last year co operative societies have trained themselves skilfully to shipped about 6,000.000 pounds to stand at attention when their better Chicago warehouses.

A we have been profoundly impressed a say the official representative of organized labor in great Britain a by the effects of the policy of intervention and blockade upon the rus Ian people. This policy has been pursued by various foreign governments since 1918, and under various forms direct and indirect it is still timing pursued today.

A while the stoppage of exports from Russia is injurious to the we orld outside the stoppage of imports is disastrous to the Interior Economy of Russia herself. is a Rich country agriculturally but the peasant can not Supply food to the towns except in Exchange for manufactured articles. The stoppage of imports makes it impossible for these articles to be manufactured in the towns or obtained As finished goods from abroad. A we wish to Register our unanimous and wholehearted protest against tile policy who a effects we have described a policy As foolish As it is the a leaders of British labor who have been on the ground thus appear to believe that the hard conditions in Rusia described in the City papers As being due to the soviet regime Are really produced by statesmen who pretend to be horrified at what is going on there.

I on May 20 the Price of Wool dropped inherit the Earth from 65 cents a Pound to 20 cents and at this Low Price there were no takers. Some buyers were offered to a Industrial democracy. Cents a Pound for Wool. A a no More enlightening experience has happened since the Federal Reserve banking system was create than this condition of the Wool Market.
