Transcript The Class Struggle Within the Party (Reprinted from The People, July 16, 1899.) [Speech by Daniel De Leon delivered on July 2, 1899, at a meeting of Party members to discuss issues before the Party.] The editor of the Volkszeitung and his agents have counted without their host. In this debate they have taken up their full time with vilifications and slanders of the Party and myself. Their plan was to lure me away from the real issue, and have me take up my time refuting personalities. I shall not spend a minute on that. Ehrenpreis said well: "The issue is the hostile principles of two hostile elements within the party." These two elements have developed strongest in New York, the movement being here oldest. There is no such thing as "patching up" between them; one or the other must surrender unconditionally. What is the dividing line? To designate that, to characterize the two, and point out all that the division implies, I can do no better than quote the members of the editorial management of the Volkszeitung themselves. Grunzig, Jonas, Schlueter, each of them has at several times said to me, in answer to my enthusiasm for the Party: "Oh, it will never be the S. L P., some other party will rise and do the work!" Do you realize what that means ? In a party such as this, the development of two elements, the one having abiding faith, the other having no faith in the future and effectiveness of the organization, is bound sooner or later to array the two in hostile camps against each other. At first, the difference is not felt; but in the measure that the element that HAS faith in the Party pushes on and becomes aggressive, the element that HAS NO SUCH FAITH is incommoded; and the time comes when the latter element, finding unbearable the demands put upon it by the aggressive element, beats around for pretexts to justify its inactivity and finally rise in rebellion. That time has come. That this is no mere theory I shall prove to you out of Schluet- er's own mouth, and with unquestionable facts of recent occurrence. In trying to explain away, at the last meeting, the charge of having suppressed matters favorable to the Party, Schlueter made three defenses : FIRST DEFENSE—"I am not bound to take all such matter into the Volkszeitung."—A Party editor, who HAS faith in the Party's future, a loyal editor, DOES feel so bound; he is greedy after matter fa- . vorable to the Party. One, on the contrary, who HAS NO SUCH 17
