More Production and More Poverty, by J. P. M. Millar.
12 pp. Art covers. Illustrated.
Price 2d.
National Council of London Colleges, 11, Penywern Road, London, S.W. 5.

OUR comrade Millar has produced an excellent little pamphlet which mercilessly flays the “increased production” demand of the capitalist class, which was also supported by the famous “Gateway to More” placard showing the faces of well-known Privy Councillors in the Labour movement. The author adopts what is the most forceful method of Marxian argument—that of quoting capitalist authorities to sustain Labour’s contentions. The most powerful evidence one can quote against the defence of capitalism is that supplied by the defenders themselves. Our author does this with such skill that the result is highly disconcerting for the master class. The pamphlet is a powerful plea for the extension of the movement for independent working class education.
