Transcript This declaration fails entirely to underscore the highly capitalistic or imperialistic character of the war, neither does it point out the class position a Socialist organization and the candidate of such an organization should occupy in such a discussion.

Sentimental claptrap and pretentious phrasemongery are here brought upon the stage and employed to exploit the revolutionary impulse of the masses for pure and simple political Opportunism—an Opportunism that is as utopistic as it pretends to be realistic. In this interview Morris Hillquit not only failed to affirm the Socialist Party's position on the war, as laid down in the St. Louis Resolution, but deliberately ignored or neglected to underscore the ever sharper class lines created by this gigantic holocaust of modern, greedy Imperialism and the inevitable consequences, consequences of immeasurable importance to the proletariat, flowing therefrom. In presenting the war issue, Morris Hillquit not only shrewdly avoided to formulate the class position of the Socialist movement; but he also avoided to emphasize the logical conception flowing from such a formulation, namely: that the Socialist workers of the world conduct a struggle against this war, by battling constantly against the forces responsible for or at the bottom of the same—the capitalists of the world.
