Transcript Conclusion The above outline furnishes a by no means complete presentation and analysis of the various and manifold phases of the last campaign of the S. P. in Greater New York. However, the principal and basic factors upon which this political struggle rested and from which it drew its strength have, we believe, been amply covered. From the facts submitted, the reader will now be in a position to determine the exact nature of the gigantic campaign conducted by the S. P. He will, furthermore, be compelled to conclude that it was a campaign of compromise based on irresponsible speculations and stimulated by fraudulent promises to the voters; in short: that it was a campaign of capitalist palliation, falsely flying the flag of Socialism, and not one of Socialist revolution. Consequently, it was not a Socialist campaign, and the approximately 142,000 votes cast for Morris Hillquit were not cast for Socialism, but for the program analyzed above. Such votes can, therefore, not even be considered a forceful protest against war, because they are not predicated upon a class-conscious conception of the causes underlying this conflict. As a sentimental protest against the continuance of this stupendous slaughter, these votes may be considered a factor; but, as is the case with all sentiment unsupported by scientific clarity, the actual power behind the same is nil. The political success of the Socialist Party, and the so-called Socialist landslide celebrated in the papers and periodicals of the party can, therefore, taking the above facts and deductions as a criterion, not be classified as a Socialist victory, but a victory for reactionary palliation and reform. As such, this "victorious movement," by its very impotence to effectively palliate the negative effects of Capitalism, will collapse as spontaneously as it was reared. However, it is now up to the Socialists, who have the cause of the Revolution and of the Industrial Republic at heart, to counteract this spurious propaganda. This can be done effectively through the dissemination of Marxian principles, i. e., through the spreading of Socialist Economics and the Socialist 27
