Anarchy’s Queen for Peace

 

Declares That the Killing of Monarchs Will Cease, as It Hurts the Cause.

     Kings and queens may get out of their bomb-proof jackets, for Emma Goldman has grant[e]d them immunity from further attack. America’s leading female anarchist has returned from the Paris convention of “Reds” from all over the world, where it was decreed that there should be no more killing of crowned heads. Miss Goldman breathes of sweet peace. Says she:
     “Under anarchy there would be no crime. There would be no need for any one to steal, because all would have enough to live on. Anarchists as a rule are uns[e]l[f]ish. No one would demand more than another. Everything would be equalized. There would be no accumulation of wealth. The desire for wealth, after all, is childish. It is like little children who want more toys. It means a lack of intelligence. Wealth does not bring happiness.”
