Transcript 16 AN APPEAL TO THE YOUNG. oppressed because you know that the beautiful, the sublime, the spirit of life itself are on the side of those who fight for light, for humanity, for justice! You stop me at last! 'What the devil!' you say. "But if abstract science is a luxury and practice of medicine mere chicane; if law spells injustice, and mechanical invention is but a means of robbery; if the school, at variance with the wisdom of the practical man', is sure to be overcome, and art without the revolutionary idea can only degenerate, what remains for me to do?' A vast and most enthralling task; a work in which your actions will be in complete harmony with your conscience, an undertaking capable of rousing the noblest and most vigorous natures. What work?—I will now tell you. Two courses are open to you: you can either tamper for ever with your conscience and finish one day by saying "Humanity can go to the devil as long as I am enjoying every pleasure to the full and so long as the people are foolish enough to let me do so.' Or else you will join the ranks of the socialists and work with them for the complete transformation of society. Such is the necessary result of the analysis we have made; such is the logical conclusion at which every intelligent being must arrive provided he judge impartially the things he sees around him, and disregard the sophism suggested to him by his middle-class education and the interested views of his friends. Having once reached this conclusion the question which arises is "what is to be done?' The answer is easy. Quit the environment in which you are placed and in which it is customary to speak of the workers as a lot of brutes, be amongst the people, and the question will solve itself.
