- Dan Georgakas: “The IWW planned to carry out its program at a time when American capitalism was at its most unbridled stage of development, and when the working class, native and foreign born, was still adjusting to urbanized society.”
- Melvyn Dubofsky: “In San Diego the IWW learned the limits of passive resistance, as well as the folly of concentrating its limited power on tangential causes.”
- “Codger” Lewis: “Don’t write this out like it’s all past and done. Freedom’s like corn, it’s something that ain’t always gonna be there unless ya keep replanting it.”
