"Repression is not the only safeguard against Revolution. Where there are genuine grievances there must be genuine redress," writes Sir Sidney Low in the "Sunday Pictorial," discussing 'If Bolshevism Comes to Great Britain.' That there are such grievances will not be denied. Our society has gone lumbering on too long shackled by all sorts of obstructions and inequalities brought down from â– the ages. The war has stirred the depths and given a new outlook to Labour, a keen impatience with economic disabilities that press most hardly upon the toiling multitude, a vivid desire for a. larger, easier, fuller life. Democracy is the great instrument by | which these wrongs can be amended, these aspirations satisfied. Let our Democratic Ministers and legislators see to it that the opportunity is rightly and promptly used. Then the revolutionary wave will surge by our shores and leave us unharmed."
