Example text

I advised them that I had carefully studied the six­volume Lenin library, that I rejoiced in the successes of the Russian Revolution and hoped we could bring about socialism in the United States of America because that logic meant turning our society from a dog­eat­dog conflict into a cooperative society, where people worked in harmony and helped each other instead of climbing over their corpses to get ahead.  They said they wanted to test my nerve, found me to be okay, and would recommend me for Party membership.

They were public organizations, but Page 24 they were mainly controlled by Party leaders as our "transmission" belts.  At that time, when there were indications the industrial union movement would begin, the TUUL ended its attempt at separate organization and dissolved.  That was the usual way in which the personal integrity of a prominent leader was undermined before he was expelled and politically destroyed.  The Party did not continue that tour.  But too often they were not.  The most frequently recurring case was that of Leon Glaser.

My first marriage foundered on poverty and broke up in its second year.  I trust that recounting my experiences will help those who read it to understand my course, and to justify theirs.  Some Page 12 school districts were beginning to reduce teachers' pay and fears were being expressed that bank failures were going to cause the whole economic system to collapse.  I observed these developments with increasing apprehension that nothing but disaster lay ahead for the working people and my conviction grew every able bodied person should work to change a system that was failing.
