SocialismIs a wor.'d-wlde move^^ment of the working class and Its^sympathizers to have the products of^labor go to those who produce them;^in other words, to secure for the^producers of wealth te wealth which^they produce, that they may be 1^ tt, I^housed, better fed, better educated and^live a larger and better life.
Socialistsbelieve that Socialism, by^abollsing the profit-making system in^business, and by establishing the co^^operative commonwealth, will remove^more than anytlng elae proposed, the^political corruption and economic^motive as well as the opportunity for^wrongs, and wlhmit destroying indi^^vidual tberty or te incentive to worthy-^effort
Societyshould be so organized that^at1 parasites would become producers^of something useful. This would In^crease the producing army and great^^ly shorten the hours of work neucssay^for the production of all needed com^^modities. Three hours of work per^day would do this, it isbelleved, with^moredn machinery, under the econ^^omy of Socialistic management.
Capitalismenables the cunning and^the strong to live in Idleness and lux^^ury on the toll of others.
Profit-makingrobs labor of four-^fifths of the output value of tta toil.^| This supports the employers, the^wealthy unemployed and our other^I society parasites^those unnecessary^mldlemen, advertisers, servants, etc.^^who are not producers, and who nre^not needed as dlstlbuters of commod-
Soclalismwould make a.l social^utilities collective^ owned; t tere^would be work for all; each worker^would be paid wei'l for services per^^formed; the great surplus called pro^^fits, which now goes to the exploiters,^would be saved for public Welfare.^Society being bo rich filthy sweat^^shops would be abolished; human^rookeries would be torn down; streets^and public parks wout'd be Improved^beyond anything now attempted;^better water supplies secured; public^^ervlcs of all kinds enlarged and^made better In quality; better public^schoo s and other Institutions of^learnl lg eaabllshed.
