Transcript THE METHODS OF SOCIALISM 57 are slowly accomplished within the industrial substance of society. The breaking of the shell becomes a useful and liberating act only when the chicken is fully developed within it. When that point is reached, the chicken itself takes care of the shell. The hen has nothing to do with that part of the performance. It is her business to sit on the egg the full period of time required for hatching, to supply the proper heat and not to shirk her task for any period of time. Should the hen become impatient or get into her feathery head a syndicalist notion to "hasten the process," and should she attempt to break the shell before the time, she would only destroy the embry- pnic life of the chicken. And finally, the process of incubation may be used to make clear the relation of the Socialist propaganda to the process of natural economic evolution. To hatch a chicken, the hen must have an egg, an object containing the germs of a chicken. No amount of hatching will turn a stone into a chicken. On the other hand, an egg will remain an egg forever unless deliberately taken by the hen into hatching. No system of society can be transformed into a Socialist commonwealth unless it has in it the germs of a Socialist order, and on the other hand, no system of society will growlnto a Socialist state unless planfully directed to it. The capitalist state is the egg—the Socialists do the hatching!
