All nature is but art, unknown to thee;
All change, direction which thou canst not see;
All discord, harmony not understood;
All partial evil, universal good.
And, spite of pride, in erring reason spite,
One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.
Daily Bleed Patron Saint 2003,
French novelist, proto-feminist, lifestyle anarchist.
There was a small colony of South Slavic students & revolutionaries in Switzerland, & they were connected with Bakunin & the Slavic section of the famous Jura Federation. Among them were: Jovan Zujovic, Manojlo Hrvacanin, Pera Todorovic & others.
The liberty of man consists solely in this: that he obeys natural laws because he has himself recognized them as such, & not because they have been externally imposed upon him by any extrinsic will whatever, divine or human, collective or individual.
"No theory, no ready-made system,
I cleave to no system. I am a true seeker."
no book that has ever been written will save the world.
I cleave to no system. I am a true seeker."
— Mikhail Bakunin

A pamphlet created by Alden Freeman alerted people to the fight for free speech. It contains a tongue-in-cheek New York Times account of his attempt to hold a meeting where Emma could speak freely & without police restriction.
Excerpt from "The New York Times,"
"Goldman Champions Win the East Side,"
July 1, 1909
And we gave new courage to the men
Who carried on in nineteen-ten
And shoulder to shoulder we'll win through
Led by the ILGWU
hail the waistmakers of nineteen-nine
making their stand on the picket line,
Breaking the power of those who reign
Pointing the way, smashing the chain
— The Uprising of the 20,000, dedicated to the Waistmakers of 1909

The Masses & other periodicals containing antiwar articles are soon banned from the mails; 65,000 conscientious objectors; 900 imprisoned under Espionage Act; 450 arrested in Green Corn anti-draft Rebellion.
Many workers & radicals jailed or deported, under often absurd pretexts, to stifle dissent or bust unions. Socialists have made gains in elections, & summer Socialist antiwar meetings draw 5000, 10,000, 20,000. First open urban riot(?) involving black & white youths(?) occurs in East St Louis.
Here Errico Malatesta argues for "continuous struggle, pacific or violent, according to circumstances, against the government & the possessors to conquer as much possible of freedom & well-being for all."
See our Encyclopedia page,
A General Strike was raging across Italy, with Workers Councils appearing, & the councilist program & occupation of the factories was approved by the Congress. The strike & the councilist movement, under attack by the Italian government & military, would be sabotaged by the Socialist party & the mainstream unions.
"If this country ever needed a Mussolini, it needs one now."

"It should be particular quality of British justice to ensure that Mr. Jagger is treated exactly the same as anyone else, no better & no worse. There must remain a suspicion in this case that Mr. Jagger received a more severe sentence than would have been thought proper for any purely anonymous young man."
Also, a second(?) draft lottery this summer sees 28 commissioned military officers, representing 250 others, form Concerned Officers Movement Against the Vietnam War.
