PROFITS OBJECTIONABLE I" the eyes of the interventionists the mere existence of profits is objectionable. Ihey speak of profit without deal- ">g with its corollary—loss. They do not comprehend that profit and loss are the mstruments by means of which the consumers keep a tight rein on all entrepreneurial activities. It is profit and in iV }- make the consumers supreme 'he direction of business. It is absurd 0 contrast production for profit and Production for use. On the unhampered ™ ,.a man can earn profits only by PP'ying the consumers in the best and neapest way with the goods they want use. I rofit and loss withdraw the ma- cr'al factors of production from the ands of the inefficient and place them 1 we hands of the more efficient. It is eir social function lo make a man the ore influential in the conduct of ', iness the better he succeeds in proving commodities for which people the 11 THe consumers suffer when aws of the country prevent the most ,,.'Cle'u entrepreneurs from expanding son,'1 °f lheir activities. What made ness'' emer',rises develop into "big busi- fill; LVaS precisely their success in "lng best the demand of the masses. Anti-capitalistic policies sabotage the oeration of the capitalist system of the market economy. The failure of interventionism does not demonstrate the necessity of adopting socialism. It merely exposes the futility of interventionism. All those evils which the self-styled "progressives" interpret as evidence of the failure of capitalism are the outcome of their allegedly beneficial interference with the market. Only the ignorant, wrongly identifying interventionism and capital ism. believe that the remedy for these evils is socialism. Footnotes 'F.ven the Communist Manifesto has to admit: "The organization of the proletarians into a class, and thus into a political party, is ever and again broken up by competition amon£ the workers themselves." (Marx and Engels: Das Kommunistische Manifest, p. 300). See also Marx, Das Elentl der Philosophic, 8th Edition, Stuttgart 1920, p. 161. 'JAt which point people quite illogically overlook the fact that the svage-earner too is interested in lhe prosperity of the branch of production and of tlle plant in which be is engaged. sEven Cunow (Die Marxsche Geschichts-, Ges- elhihiifts-iind Staalstheorie, Vol. II, p. 53) in his uncritical Marx apology has to admit that Man and Engels in their political writings speak not only of the three main classes tint differentiate betsveen a whole series of minor and side classes. 4Sidney Webb in Fabian Essays in Socialism, first published in 1889 (American edition, New York 1891, p. 4). 5Cf.

A. Niederhelman Plymouth Congregational Church, Sheboygan at Marr St., Fondulac, Wis. ...your broadcast... on "Guaranteed Annual Wage" ... gave an excellent summary of the views of both labor and management. Charles T. Wheeler, Jr. 419 N. Adams St., Ypsilanti, Mich. Congratulations. Your Christmas edition of Facts Forum News is a gem. It is inspiring and alarming: Inspiring in that it gives the reader a clear-cut picture of the philosophy of government that made and has kept the U.S. "the land of the free and the home of the brave." It is alarming in that it gives a clear-cut picture of the extent to which dialectical materialism emanating from Moscow has contaminated the proud spirit of courage, loyalty, and faith to which we were born. Since the Christmas issue, I have done this with my copy of Facts Forum News after I have read it: I give it to a friend, I say to him: "Here is a magazine that is the only one of its kind in America. I know you will enjoy reading it. Be sure to bring it back to me after you have read it unless you have a friend to whom you can pass it on." It might not be too bad an idea for our side to start multiplying ourselves, too. Robert D.
