Transcript productive forces, the more does it actually become the national capitalist, the more citizens does it exploit. The workers remain wage-workers—proletarians. The capitalist relation is not done away with. It is rather brought to a head. But, brought to a head, it topples over." (Socialism, Utopian and Scientific, Frederick Engels, page 123.) "But of late, since Bismarck went in for State-ownership of industrial establishments, a kind of spurious Socialism has arisen, degenerating, now and again, into something of flun- keyism, that without more ado declares all State-ownership, even of the Bismarckian sort, to be socialistic* Certainly, if the taking over by the State of the tobacco industry is social-/]/ istic, then Napoleon and Metternich must be numbered among the founders of Socialism. If the Belgian State, for quite political and financial reasons, itself constructed its chief railway lines; if Bismarck, not under any economic compulsion, took over for the State the chief Prussian lines, simply to be better able to have them in hand in case of war, to bring up the railway employees as voting cattle for the Government (underscoring mine), and especially to create for himself a new source of income independent of parliamentary votes— this was in no sense, a socialistic measure, directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously. Otherwise, the Royal Maritime Company, the Royal porcelain manufacture, and even the regimental tailor of the army would also be socialistic institutions, or even, as was seriously proposed by a sly dog in Frederick William Ill's reign, the taking over by the State of the brothels." (Socialism, Utopian and Scientific, Frederick Engels, pages 121-122.) "The socialists do not claim any credit for the present-day institutions of government ownership, nor have they any illu- * A similar conception was and still is prevalent amongst quite a few Socialists of to-day. To illustrate: When, due to military exigencies, various governments in the belligerent countries nationalized and municipalized certain indispensable basic industries; when they, actuated by the most primitive instinct of self-preservation, centralized and organized these economic resources of the country, in order to be able to battle more effectively against the enemy and to thus conclude the war victoriously, quite a few Socialists and Socialist publications celebrated this move as an advent of Socialism—as a vindication, realization (in part) and endorsement of our aims. 17
