Transcript historic development utilized by the vanguard of civilization in this country—the Socialist movement? Did the Socialist movement employ these contributions of social development to shatter the power of Capitalism, by utilizing these potent energies in spreading and strengthening the spirit of class-consciousness in the proletariat? Did this movement, pledged to the emancipation of the proletariat from wage-slavery, obey the dictate of these momentous times?; did it feel the pulse of evolution—of an evolution that convincingly portends the early and inevitable collapse of this economic system?; did it comprehend the significance of the symptoms, and, consistently, commence to prepare the workers for their historic task? Did the Socialist movement read the handwriting on the wall, strip the slew of artificial political and social "problems" of all their irrevelancies, and proclaim the issue of the campaign to be: Capitalism versus Socialism— the international plunderbund against the international proletariat? Did the agitation of the Socialist movement in this country assume the all-embracing proportions, the universal or cosmopolitan character demanded by the international aspects of the problems and interests at stake? In other words, was the campaign pivoted upon an agitation that fearlessly threw down the gauntlet to the war-lords of the world, and unequivocally called for a cessation of hostilities, by courageously and unceasingly preparingand working for the removal of the primal cause of all this misery—the overthrow of wage-slavery? To conclude: was the agitation and campaign waged by organized Socialism in this country a Socialist campaign, a campaign that sought to utilize the dormant, creative revolutionary power in the proletariat for the abolition of the present wages system; i. e., was it a campaign of revolution, an assertion of the class principles, or a campaign of palliation and "reform," conducted by a coterie of political charlatans, not for the liberation of the workers, but for their greater enslavement? 8
