THE AMERICAN CITIZENS' AGENCY :F0R ESTABLISHING A JUST AND SCIENTIFIC ADMINISTRATION OF THE PEOPLE'S AFFAIRS: THE SOCIALIST LABOR PARTY PLATFORM Labor being the self-evident creator of nil wealth and civilization, it is but equit able that thotte who perform all labor and thus create all wealth should enjoy the product of their toil. Hut thin is rendered impossible by the modern system of production which, since the discovery of uteam-power and since the neneral introduction of machines, iu in all branches of industry carried on with such gigantic means and appliances as but a few are able to possess. The present industrial system is co-operative in one re.ijnrt onbj, which is: That not, an in former times, the individual works alone and lor his own account, but dozens, hundreds and thousands of men work together in shops, in mines, on huge farms and lands, co-operating according to the most efficient division of labor, while the fruits of this co-operative labor are not reaped by the workers themselves, but are in a great measure appropriated by fie owners of the means of production. This system, by gradually extinguishing the middle class of people, necessarily separates society into two classes the claas of the wage-worlteii and that of the capitalists. This system causes: The planlessness and reckless rate of production. The waste of human and natural forces. The commercial and industrial crises. The constant uncertainty of the material existence of the wage-workers. The misery of the laboring masses. The accumulation of wealth in the hands of a few. These conditions which under the present industrial system nnot but Iweome more and more aggravated, are inconsistent with the interests of mankind, and with the principles of justice and true democracy, as they destroy those rights which the Declaration of Independence of the United States holds to be inalienable in all men: the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These conditions shorten and imperil life by want and misery. They destroy liberty because the economical subjection of the wage-workers to the owners of the means of production leads immediately to their political dependence upon the same sourceB, and finally frustrates the pursuit of happiness, whiuh is never possible when life and personal liberty are constantly endangered. This system, however, carries within itself the terms of a new organization of humanity in the modern industrial States, both economically and morally. By the evolution of this system to the last staire, the proletarianized masses of workers will finally have opposed to them comparatively few industrial despots, and by reason of the unbearable uncertainty of living conditions, the former will be compelled to abolish the wage system, and establish the co-operative society. The basis of co-operative society stipulates the substitution of public ownership for private ownership of land, instruments of labor (machines, factories, etc.), and with it co-operative production and guarantee of a share in the product in accord ance with the service rendered by the individual to society. The Socialist Labor Party bases its name, "Labor Party," upon the acknowledge ment of the oppression of the class of wage-workers by the claas of capitalists. DEMANDS.
