Transcript 82 SOCIALISM SUMMED UP Austria, Belgium, Holland and the Scandinavian countries likewise contain large numbers of cities, towns and villages fully controlled by the Socialists, and no less than two thousand municipal councils in Europe have Socialist representation of varying degrees of strength. Even in the United States, in which the political career of Socialism is practically in its infancy, the Socialist Party is in control of more than fifty cities and towns, and has elected about one thousand public officials to local offices. In the cities in which the Socialists have been in power they have introduced such reform measures as were feasible within the restricted scope and powers of municipal governments. The reforms do not constitute Socialism or even an earnest of Socialism, but they are measures based on the recognition of the social obligations of the community towards the citizen, the new spirit in politics for which Socialism is largely responsible. In the conventional political conception a municipal corporation is first of all a business concern, instituted and maintained for the purpose of administering the corporate property of the city. Hence the slogan of all municipal reform movements of the middle class is invariably "a clean, honest, businesslike administration." The Socialists, on the other hand, emphasize the social functions of the municipality; the education, health, and social welfare of its inhabitants.
