      The Slavery
      of Our Times
      by
      Leo Tolstoy

      The Slavery of Our Times

      by Leo Tolstoy

      Excerpt


      This little book shows, in a short, clear, and systematic manner, how the principle of N ou Resistance, about which Tolstoy has written so much, is related to economic and political life.

      The great majority of men, without knowing why, are constrained to labour long hours at tasks they dislike, and Often to live in unhealthy conditions. It is not that man has so little control over nature that to obtain a subsistence it is necessary to work in this way, but because men have made laws about land, taxes, and pro perty, which result in placing the great bulk of the people in conditions which compel them to labour thus, or go to the workhouse, or starve.
