Transcript (7) C is the Communism which no longer speaks in the name of religion or of the state, but in the name of the people- During the past fifty years a great awakening of the working- class has taken place? the prejudice in favour of private property is passing away. The worker grows mere anH more accustomed to regard the factory, the railway, or the mine, not as a feudal castle belonging to a lord, but as an institution of public utility which the public has the right to control. The idea oi possesion in common has not been worked out from th'; slow deductions of some thinker buried in his private s'.udy, it is a thought which is germinating in the brains of the working masses, and when the revolution, which the close of this century has in stoie for us, shall have hurled confusion into the camp of our exploiters, you will see that the mass of the people will demand Expropriation, and will proclaim its right to the factory, the locomotive, and the steamship. Just as the sentiment of the inviolability of the home has developed during the latter half of our century, so also the sentiment of collective right to all that serves for the production of wealth has developed among the masses. It is a fact, and he wh.o, like ourselves, wishes to share the popular life and follow its development, must acknowledge that this affirmation ij a faithful summary of the people's aspirations. The tendency of this closing century is towards Communism, not the monastic or barrack-room Communism formerly advocated, but the free Communism which places the products reaped or manufactured in common at the disposal of all, leaving to each the liberty to consume them as he pleases in his own home. This is the solution of which the mass of the people can most readily take hold, and it is the solution which the people demands at the most solemn epochs. In 1848 the formula " From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs " was the one which went straight to the heart of the masses, and if they acclaimed the Republic and universal suffrage, it was because they hoped to attain to Communism through them. In 1871, also, whe/> the people besieged in Paris desired to make a supreme effort to resist the invader, what was their demand ?—That free rations should be served out to everyone. Let all articles be put into one common stock and let them be distributed according to the requirements of each. Let each one take freely of all that is abundant and let those objects which are less plentiful be distributed more
