Transcript may include a recourse to a general strike which will not merely serve as a defense against Fascist counter-revolution but will carry the revolutionary struggle into the camp of the enemy. The Socialist Party proclaims anew its faith in economic and political democracy. It unhesitatingly applies itself to the task of replacing the bogus democracy of capitalist parliamentarism by a genuine workers' democracy. Capitalism is doomed. If it can be superseded by majority vote, the Socialist Party will rejoice. If the crisis comes through the denial of majority rights after the electorate has given us a mandate we shall not hesitate to crush by our labor solidarity the reckless* forces of reaction and to consolidate the Socialist state. If the capitalist system should collapse in a general chaos and confusion, which cannot permit of orderly procedure, the Socialist Party, whether or not in* such a case it is a majority, will not shrink from the responsibility of organizing and maintaining a government under the rule of the producing masses. True democracy is a worthy means to progress; but true democracy must be created by the workers of the world. — 34 —
