Labor bodies revolutionary potential under close study Child's best friend Is a rabbit named Bugs Bunny. Ky., and loving every minwte of it. Doing the hugging is Merril Harris of Louisvile, By KEVIN DOYBLE Canadian Press Staff Writer The revolutionary potential of European labor bodies is reported by informants to be under close study by a branch of Britain's Institute for Strategic Studies as well as by NATO groups. This doesn't mean that high authorities are worried that the black flag of anarchism is suddenly about to be unfurled on the restless continent. Nevertheless there have been indications that European governments are becoming increasingly aware of the anger of working groups, the unemployed, pensioners, jobless graduates and others unhappy with their living conditions and their future. Informants say the institute study was commissioned by the European Common Market. They say the studies are not of vital importance. But lingering concern with the subject may provide a basic explanation for a welter of social policies and proposals offered across Western Europe with rapidity and often with little apparent planning. HISTORICAL FACT Revolution has been a repetitive aspect of the European way of life from Charlemagne through Napoleon, to the anti-monarchist riots of 1948 and the rise of Hitler and Mussolini. A professor of political economy at the University of Heidelberg recently commented: "This awareness of revolution is having an inevitable effect on policies. Practically everything that is done by the men of power in Western Europe today can be explained as a general, unplanned fumbling for the best means of defence against 'them' - the workers, the poor, the immigrants, the conscious revolutionaries." Perhaps the most obvious ex- ample of policies where the Conservative government, elected in 1970 on a platform of allowing market forces to work freely, now has swung over to extensive interventionist programs to promote social welfare. But the same trend may have been operating when the heads of Common Market countries met in Paris last October. At that time they instructed the European community's bureaucrats to draw up a full "social policy for Europe" by the end of 1973 and stressed the importance of building a Common Market for the common man. AID LAGGING AREAS Regional policies to assist slo - growth areas have recently been given a new impetus and increased funds by the community and extensive programs for re-training and compensating those out of work are being enlarged. Perhaps most important is the gradual preparation by the community o f a policy which would allow for worker representation on the boards of direc- tors of companies, a system already in limited use in West Germany. There are many other similar examples reported daily. Joe Rogaly, political scientist and journalist with Britain's Financial Times newspaper, sums up the trend as well as seems possible at the moment: "The changes already brought about by a burgeoning consciousness of the possibility of revolution are irrevocable and ... are so extensive that there is a sense in which the revolution has already taken place,-although governments have yet to learn to keep ahead of events rather than two paces behind them.".
