Quote of the Day

 "Believing as we do that there is nothing on earth more sacred than humanity, we deny all allegiance to this institution of royalty...knowing well that a people mentally poisoned by the adulation of royalty can never attain to that spirit of self-reliant democracy necessary for the attainment of social freedom. The mind accustomed to political kings can easily be reconciled to social kings – capitalist kings of the workshop, the mill, the railway, the ships and the docks."

James Connolly
