Transcript ordinarily local struggles a national, yes international character. It cannot be disputed, that since the inception of the bloody orgy in Europe, capitalist society has been repeatedly shaken in its very foundations by revolutions and uprisings; in short, revolutionized by movements making for social reconstruction, and growing out of these turbulent, anarchic conditions. These upheavals and eruptions have been of an industrial as well as political nature, and have left their indelible traces upon the social mind. The intellectual revolutions produced by the effects of the war have led to a general desire amongst especially the workers to study and familiarize themselves with subjects dealing with or throwing light upon the elements actuating social development.
