Transcript there is rare, and, where it does exist, il leads not only to common interests vis a-vis third parties but, simultaneously, to competition between the parties within the group. * * * * * It is the same with the workers, who are contrasted with the owners of the means of production. The special interests of the separate workers' groups are also not unitary. They have quite different interests according to the knowledge and skill of their members. It is certainly not in virtue of its class position that the proletariat is that homo geneous class the Socialist parties imagine it to be. Only adherence to the Socialist ideology, which obliges every individual and every group to give up his or its special interests, brings it about that it is so. The daily work of the trade unions consists precisely in effecting compromises between these conflicts of interest.1 .. . The community of class interests does not exist independently of class consciousness, and class consciousness is not merely additional to a community of special interests; il creates siic-h a community. The proletarians are not a special group within the framework ol modern society, whose attitude is unequivocally determined by their class position. Individuals are brought together for common political action by the Socialist ideology; the unity of the proletariat comes, not from its class position, but from lhe ideology of the class-war. As a class the proletariat does not exist before socialism: the Socialist idea first created it by combining certain individuals to attain a certain political end. There is nothing in socialism which makes it especially appropriate to forwarding the real interests of the proletarian classes. —Wide World ft* "Capitalism is still very vigorous in the Western Hemisphere."

In fact there is no contrast between lhe interests of particular nations and ran-. 11 i- natioiial ideology which first creates the belief in special interests and turns nations into special groups which fight each other. Nationalist ideology divides societj vertically; the Socialist ideology divides society horizontally. In this sense the two are mutually exclusive. Sometimes the one has the upper hand, sometimes the other. In Germany in I'M I the nationalist ideology shouldered the Socialist ideology into the background—and suddenly there was a nationalist united front.
