Rev. William J. H. Boetcker was a Presbyterian minister, labor leader, author, pamphleteer and influential public speaker who was born circa 1873 in Hamburg, Germany and died in 1962, in Erie, Pennsylvania USA.  He is most famous for his pamphlet entitled THE TEN CANNOTS.

Boetcker wrote on a variety of topics which he entitled Golden Nuggets which would be published in newspapers throughout the country.  . Boetcker sometimes used the pseudonyms “TIANUS” which was an acronym for “TRUTH IN A NUT SHELL” and “TIORIO” which was short for THINK IT OVER – REASON IT OUT”.  He also used the nom de plume “Civis Americanus”.

The current infatuation with evil ideologies of socialism, communism and all things collectivist, Rev. Boetcker’s words are a good reminder that ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims.

THE TEN CANNOTS

by

REV. WILLIAM J. H. BOETCKER

  1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

  2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

  3. You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.

  4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

  5. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

  6. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.

  7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

  8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

  9. You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.

  10. And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
