Berger said: "I have heard it pleaded that
the only salvation for the proletariat of
America is direct action; that the ballot
box is simply a humbug. Now I don't
doubt that in the last analysis we must
shoot and when it comes to shooting, Wis-
consin will be there. We always make
good"; on July 31, 1909, in the Milwaukee
"Social Democratic Herald," Berger said:
"No one will claim that I am given to the
reciting of 'revolutionary' phrases. On the
contrary, I am known to be a 'construc-
tive' Socialist. However, ... it is easy to
predict that the safety and hope of this
country will finally lie in one direction
only that of a violent and bloody revolu-
tion. Therefore, I say, each of the 500,000
Socialist voters and of the 2,000,000 work-
ingmen who instinctively incline our way,
should, besides doing much reading and still
more thinking, also have a good rifle and
the necessary rounds of ammunition in his
