Plutocratic vs. Proletarian Socialism
Mr Voter: Do you know that
Taft and Roosevelt are
1. Advocating the establish
ment of Socialism for the benefit of
2. That they advocate the emas
culation or repeal of the Sherman
3. That they intend to perpetu

ing them government charters;
4. That they propose to take
from the States v the power to pro
hibit, punish or regulate monopolies
engaged in inter-state business?
If you do not know this, or if you
do not believe it, read on and you
will be forced to believe.
The Socialism of Karl Marx and
Eugene V. Debs contrasted with the
Socialism of Taft, , Roosevelt, Per
kins and Morgan:
Proletarian Socialism vs. Pluto
The essence of Socialism is the
governmental management and
control of private property, includ
ing the means of production and
distribution of wealth.
Whoever advocates this, advo
Eugene V. Debs, candidate of
the Socialist Party;
Theodore Reosevelt, candidate of
the Third Term Party;
William Howard Taft, candidate
of the Republican Party, all advo
cate the doctrine just stated; hence
all are socialists.
Debs differs from Taft and Roose
velt in two important particulars:
First: Debs would have the
government own all private proper
ty, thus establishing a governmen
Taft and Roosevelt would permit
the great trusts and combinations
to retain the ownership of all prop
erty they may acquire, thus estab

Second: Debs would have the
government control all the property
and means of production, and di
vide the profits among all the
Taft and Roosevelt would have
the government supervise the oper

The Socialism of Debs is intended
(I think mistakenly) to benefit the
great mass of toilers.
The Socialism of Roosevelt and
Taft is intended (I think viciously)
to benefit n small class of criminal

Mr. Voter: I can hear you de
nounce these statements as vile
slander upon Taft and Roosevelt.
I challenge you to read on and
you will be more than convinced.
Plutocratic Socialism. Roosevelt's
Remedy for the Trusts.
("You and I, Mr. Harriman, are
practical men." Theodore Roose
velt.) Mr. Roosevelt was President sev
en years. He never suggested the
destruction of the trusts. On the
contrary, he repeatedly declared
that combinations were "desirable
and indispensable." He insistently
demanded that the "Big Business"
should be chartered by the Govern
ernment, and taken under its pro
tection. In his message of December 2,
1902, he said:
"Our aim is not to do away with
corporations; on the contrary those
big corporations are an inevitable
development of modern industri
alism." In his message of 1901. he said:
The creation of these great for
tunes is not due to the tariff, nor to
any other governmental action, but
to natural causes in the business
To the 59th and 60th Congresses
he again emphasized the idea that
big business had come to stay, and
i'.) 1907 he added:
"Combinations are not only neces
sary but inevitable Congress has

to engage in interstate and foreign
commerce and a general law can
be enacted under the provisions of
which existing corporations can
take out Federal charters and new
Federal corporatons could be cre
ated To confer upon the Nation
al Goverment, in connection with
the amendment I advocate to the
anti-trust law. power of supervision
over big business, would benefit
them." In his message of 1908 he
denounced the anti-trust act, and
"I strongly advocate that instead
of an unwise effort to prohibit all
combinations, there shall be substi
tuted a law which shall expressly
permit combinations, which are in
the interest of the public, but shall
at the same time give some agency
of the National Government full
power of control and supervision
In the Outlook of June 3. 1911 he
again denounced the anti-trust law
and opposed all efforts to strength
en it or to enforce it in court, and
urged that control by a commission
be substituted for prosecution.
Summoned as a witness before
the Stanley Committee investigat
ing the Steel Trust, he reiterated
In his "Confession of Faith"
speech made to the Chicago Con
vention, which nominated him,
"Our aim is to control business
we must utilize those forms of
industrial organization that are in
dispensable to the highest industri
al productiveness and efficiency."
'In that speech, after endorsing
the book of Prof. Chas. R. Van Hise
of the University of Wisconsin,
offering "Concentration and Con
trol" as the solution of trust prob
lem. he says:
'A national industrial commis
sion should be created which should
have complete power to regulate
and control all the great industrial
concerns engaged in interesting bus
iness which practically means all
of thetn in the country."
His Bull Moose platform con
tains some, thirteen planks which
are taken almost bodily from the
Socialist platform, embracing de
mands for a minimum wage, insur
ance against sickness, old age, ac
cidents and unemployment, the re
call of Judges, etc., including Debs
demand for national control of bus
iness as the remedy for the evil of
It thus appears that Mr. Roose
velt's policies, boiled down, mean:
1. The repeal of the Sherman
and all other Anti-Trust laws:
2. That monopolies and combi
nations in restraint of trade are a
3. That the government should
legalize and perpetuate monopolies.
4. That after legalizing the trusts
the government should seek to con
He states directly in his message
to the 60th Congress that this plan
would "benefit them."
Such is the Roosevelt remedy.
Mr. Taft in the same boat.
In these views, Mr. Taft is in ac
cord with Mr. Roosevelt He too
favors legalizing the trusts and
granting to them national charters
under commission control.
The incorporation of the trusts

In his message at the beginning
of the first session of the 61st Con
gress (1910), he said:
"In a special message last year, I
brought to the attention of Con
gress the propriety and wisdom of
enacting a general law providing for
the incorporation of industrial and
other companies engaged in inter
state commerce, and renew my
recommendation in that behalf
A Bureau or Commission might well
be invested with the duty of aiding
courts in the dissolution and recre

In his special message of 1909
and in that of December 6, 1910, he
urged National Incorporation of the
On December 5, 1911, again urg

trusts, he said:
"The Interstate and foreign busi
ness far exceeds the business done
in any one State. This fact will
justify the Federal Government in
granting a Federal charter to such
a combination offering protection
against harmful, vexatious and un
necessery invasion by the States."
We see then Mr. Taft and Mr.
Roosevelt, however violent their an
tagonism in other matters, are in
complete harmony upon the gen
