    Poor Marksmanship - Anonymous, Industrial Pioneer February 1921.
    The IWW was highly critical of the tactics of liberals and progressives which they saw as inefficient if not wholly counterproductive. Craft unions were becoming archaic in the midst of economic transition and were divisive and exclusive. Labor legislation held little respite for workers in light of the government's reluctance to enforce it. Such legislation could even be dangerous insofar as it misled workers to believe that their problems could be resolved under capitalism. In this humorous piece, an anonymous Wobbly cartoonist drives home the message that the efforts of craft unionists and political reformers are way off mark. For the IWW, the only way to end the exploitation of the working class was the direct expropriation of the capitalist from industry.
