Work makes you free

Wings over Scotland


Posted on March 19, 2013 by Rev. Stuart Campbell

The usage of Nazi terminology to refer to any actions of a democratically-elected UK government is nearly always an absurd and unhelpful exaggeration. Today, however, one such analogy is absolutely literally justified.


The words “Arbeit Macht Frei” were emblazoned, usually in iron, over the gates of numerous concentration and extermination camps in 1930s and 1940s Germany, most infamously Dachau and Auschwitz. The phrase is usually rendered in English as “work makes you free”, though a more precise translation of the first word is “labour”.

That the same exhortation is used in Britain in 2013 by The Salvation Army tells you all you need to know about the ideological climate of the modern United Kingdom. 

Today the House Of Commons will vote to pass legislation denying compensation to people the Westminster government was found guilty in a court of law of mistreating by forcing them onto unpaid-labour schemes. The measure, brought forward by the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition administration, is expected to be tacitly backed by Labour MPs who will, under a party whip, abstain rather than oppose it.

The “workfare” programmes involved order the unemployed, sick and disabled to work for both charities and large commercial corporations without pay for varying periods of time, effectively as punishment for continuing to be unemployed. (Regardless of the fact that there are millions more sick, disabled and unemployed people than there are job vacancies available.)

For the disabled in particular, that period can be indefinite, and refusal for any category of “offender” can be – and is – met with the removal of all state benefits, leaving the subject with no means of paying for food or shelter. A public outcry over the inhumane policy has seen many charities withdraw from the scheme, but a remarkable statement from the Salvation Army this month took a different view.

“At The Salvation Army, we have a history of believing in emancipation through employment”

“Emancipation through employment”? Or, put another way, freedom through work. In the eyes of the Salvation Army – and also of the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Labour – it seems that citizens of the UK (sometimes known as “subjects of the Queen”) no longer have the unalienable right to freedom, though we don’t recall the passage of such a law. Liberty apparently must be earned, by stacking shelves in Poundland or sorting old jumpers in charity shops for nothing, against your will.

Successive right-wing governments in Westminster, urged on by even more right-wing newspapers (such the Daily Mail, which last year quoted “Arbeit Macht Frei” directly and approvingly before hastily coming to its senses), have succeeded in creating an atmosphere whereby the unfortunate, ill and disadvantaged are seen by the British public as parasitic, workshy scroungers undeserving of state assistance.

‘The same survey, incidentally, shows that support for Scottish independence among Scots has grown as UK attitudes towards social security have hardened. Contrary to the oft-aired media narrative of stagnant or falling numbers in favour of independence, the data shows that support in 2011 was at the second-highest level recorded since the opening of the Scottish Parliament in 1999′

With no major party opposed to it in the Commons, workfare is unquestionably the future for the United Kingdom’s poor. Labour introduced it – and has made it explicitly clear that the party doesn’t represent those who aren’t in work – while the Tories have naturally embraced it with alacrity as part of their drive to return Britain to a feudal age by turning the disadvantaged into serfs.

We should be clear, for the benefit of the faux-offended who invariably spring from the swamps at the first sniff of an an analogy involving the Nazis – we’re NOT for a moment suggesting that the UK is on a path to extermination camps, or that the Work Programme is equivalent to the Holocaust. But that doesn’t mean turning a blind eye to the plain facts.

When even the Christians find themselves able to advocate government policy by asserting that “work makes you free”, in days when the vulnerable and frightened end their own lives in growing numbers rather than endure any more state persecution, and thousands designated “fit for work” die of their illnesses while waiting for the DWP to send them out to unpaid forced labour for the “charities” who are supposed to be their last hope of protection, a chill runs up our spines just the same.

Why Labour doesn’t need Scotland Posted on January 10, 2012 by Rev. Stuart Campbell


Please sign and share – this petition is being handed in to Liam Byrne at the Labour Party’s Disability Summit in London on Monday morning!

Joint Statement and Petition by Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) and Black Triangle Anti-Defamation Campaign in Defence of Disability Rights on the Labour Party Anti-Bedroom Tax Campaign 


Urge all disabled and non-disabled activists campaigning against Tory welfare reform and in particular, the Bedroom Tax, to call on Labour members, constituency parties, plus affiliated and non-affiliated unions and political groups, to:

Challenge the Parliamentary Labour Party in the strongest terms, on why it considers compulsory labour necessary to combat the Bedroom Tax.

To start with, they should be told:

1. To use the current protests against the bedroom tax by disabled activists and others as a Trojan horse from which to promote a policy of benefits that is conditional on compulsory work is utterly beyond the pale.

This means that those unemployed and disabled men and women, who campaign against the Bedroom Tax within the Labour Party will, in effect, be campaigning for their own forced labour under a future Labour government.

2. We have to be absolutely clear: There is no such thing as a civilized society that treats people in inhumane and degrading ways.

A welfare ‘safety net’ conditional on exchanging labour for an uncertain standard of material life is a contradiction in terms.

3. No real job is compulsory – does the Labour Party understand the economic meaning of free labour? If not, how can it run any kind of economy, let alone a socially just economy?

A Labour Party welfare policy should support those whose lack of social power has reduced their circumstances, not compete with a Tory-led government to smear them as feckless and undeserving of a living wage.

4. Liam Byrne should immediately strike out all references to work conditionality or compulsory work, attached to the Labour Party Campaign Against the Bedroom Tax.

Many people already have paid employment and cannot get enough hours, despite being registered with various employers. They are constantly applying for jobs and attending interviews and having to get support from the DWP when their hours are not enough to support them, Despite being signed off for weeks on and off depending on their circumstances, they are threatened with having to take part in unpaid work schemes. This is insane barking bonkers the lot of you.. We also pay tax too and go for weeks to get reinstated on benefits whilst waiting for our meagre wages at the end of the month

451 AYE lorraine homayon-jones one of millions of carers who are devalued and stigmatised for defending our cared for

452. AYE Ernest Ross, Easter Road, Leith, Edinburgh. Black Triangle Campaign Edinburgh  member. Solidarity to all here for this magnificent expression of support for sick and/or disabled people under attack! Let us hope against hope that the Labour Party will listen to our united voices! Solidarity with John McDonnell and Michael Meacher MPs and the 41 Labour MP’s  who proudly voted against IDS’s Emergency Bill last week, honoured the founding traditions of the party and particularly, we praise Iain Mearns who resigned from his post as PPS this week rather than support the iniquitous complicity of Liam Byrne and the Labour front bench with the ConDem’s so-called ‘welfare reforms’. These so-called ‘reforms’ with which Labour is complicit are driving disabled people to the brink of annihilation. Let us end the barbarism now. NO to the ‘Progress’ faction and Neoliberal Labour! Let the Labour Party return to its roots! To The Spirit of 1945! If not, expect the break of the United Kingdom on 18th September 2014 as we, disabled Scots, cannot tolerate this this one second longer! People are dying! ConDemLab: IF YOU ATTACK US WE WILL DEFEAT YOU! SOLIDARITY! WE ARE NOT YOUR VICTIMS! THIS IS A QUESTION OF DISABLED PEOPLE’S SURVIVAL! YOU SHALL NOT PASS IN SCOTLAND! LET ALL PEOPLE IN THE UK UNITE NOW AGAINST THIS BARBARISM!

The welfare reforms espoused and pursued by the Tories are an affront to civilisation and should be  fought at all costs. Stand up for the working people Labour.

588 AYE Roseanna Grayston, London – a person’s ability to work is not just about their physical ability to complete certain tasks; it is also about their ability to be employed – whether or not those with the power to give employment think a person is “fit to work”. Until the Labour party announces a comprehensive strategy for tackling discrimination against those with physical and/or mental impairments in the workplace, the expectation that everyone must get a job or lose their means of sustaining themselves is not just unreasonable, it’s verging of eugenicist.

    The repellent Tories and Religion are inherantly fascist and they must be stopped they have made Contempt into a virtue,towards the poor the less well of the sick and the disabled this government is sociopathic and truly Sick. everything will rebound on them and hopefully before they have totally unsettled the nation before it kicks off and i think it will,if people have litterally nothing to lose why wouldnt they?..

    The war against us has been won with the successful implementation of the ATOS/T4 program.
    The next targets are already being lined up.–council-home.html

    It’s funny how they can deny them homes but when it comes to benefits they have to change the rules for British citizens also?

    Look up government in the dictionary, our government implements these laws then acts as if the results are no responsibility of theirs!
    If they had been doing their job the building of infrastructure would have matched population increase. Instead they use our frustration at their policies to stoke up hate campaigns. There would be no need for this resentment at all if they had been doing the job for which they are so richly rewarded by taxpayers.
    It’s more like a fascist regime with every day that passes as we untermensch know only too well!

    Where are the UAF when you need them?

    It is Not an an Exaggeration to See where the Actions of a Tinpot UK Regime
    are Nazi when they Clearly are Nazi such as the Suppression of Public Protest and
    the Persecution of the Poor and Vulnerable

    As for ” Democratically Elected ” Neither the ” Conservatives ” nor the ” Liberal
    Democrats ” have a Clear Majority on their Own

    The National Socialists Persecuted the Poor and Vulnerable and used such
    ” Work makes You Free ”

    Suppression of Political Dissent People Turning a Blind Eye and Acting the Ostrich
    All that Helped to Keep the National Socialists in Power when Common Sense
    and Revolution Combined would of got that Lot Out of Office

    Shame upon the Thick Sheople who Believe Regime Propaganda they are Part of
    the Problem as Well

    “”The usage of Nazi terminology to refer to any actions of a democratically-elected UK government is nearly always an absurd and unhelpful exaggeration. Today, however, one such analogy is absolutely literally justified.””

    I am sick of this comment. The assumption that we live in a democratically elected state are totally false. The presumption that we have a royal family, monarchy if you will, that presides over and interferes with our so-called democratic process, for its own ends, is plainly problematic. This man offers NO ANALYSIS of the state rather makes assumptions that all is basically well. IT IS NOT

    Neither is it absurd to use terminology refering to the fascism inherent in our state apparatus. It is describing and analysing the state of the uk in it’s REAL term. These comments are used to deride and divide – as if there is only ONE explanation and analysis of the state. Purient comment from a vicar
