M. A. Buswell, Whittier, Calif.:—I have been
quite an admirer of Lucifer and the fearless stand its editor and his daughter
have taken for woman’s emancipation from sexual bondage. I notice in the papers
the attempt of the police to connect Brother Isaak and his associates with the
attempted assassination of President McKinley. I don’t believe Brother Isaak,
or his co-workers of “Free Society,” knew anything about the crime, or had anything
to do with it, but the police and detectives have to make a reputation some
way, and some one has to be a victim. Of course there will be a great outcry
against anarchy but it will only make anarchy stronger. These poor deluded people,
such as the man who attempted to assassinate McKinley, realize that something
is wrong and strike blindly at what they conceive to be the cause. So long as
woman is held in sex-  ual bondage such
characters as these will be born, as a matter of course. There is talk of excluding
the foreign anarchists from this country. Can the government stop assassins
and criminals generally from being born here?
When woman is free to bear children only when she desires them, and free to choose the father of her child whether he have a license from the government or not, then we may reasonably expect an end of assassinations, an end of lynching, an end of wars and of murders generally.
Later I hope to order the Autobiography of the editor.
