WHAT, SOCIALIMS IS.
Socialism is misrepresented. Just
as every new idea Is misrepresent
ed. Things that are false are told
about It, sometimes with the know
ledge that they are false, sometimes
In the belief that they are true. A
brief statement of what Socialism
is, may be in order.
Socialism Is, a plan to set aside
the robbery of the worker through
profit, interest and rent, andi to in
sure him employment at all times
and the full social product of his
toll. It Is proposed to accomplish
this by placing the highly developed
tools of production and distribution
too large and expensive to be
longer owned and operated as Indi
viduals .under collective ownership
and democratic control. This would
at once Pce the whole people, who
wou'd own these things, m possession
f what they produced, without the
Intervention of an owner or boss,
and enable them to retain all they
might produce. This Is all there is
to Socialism. It has no secrets.
It is not a system of laws which; It
wishes to Impose on others, but a
plan, a method, through which it
would give the working people
control of the!r own lives It Is
nothing more than the extension of
the American principle of democracy,
a further socializing of things, be
gun when roads, schoo.ls postofflces
and Like things were socialized. It
is socialisation of Industry, and no
more to be feared, no more difficult
of understanding, than are the social
ized or common schools.
Socialism Is not opposed to pri
vate properly. Indeed, Its whola aim
! la to mak 11 80 that all people
may hav private property, rather
than only a few millionaires as at
Socialism is not un-American, it
Is merely an extension of the prin
ciples set forth by the revolution
ary forefathers. The American
movement is, as has been, found by
careful census, composed' of more
than 60 per cent ifatlve Americans.
Socialism Is not a scheme de
pending entirely ton. agitation for
success. It Is. the growth' of an idea.
As proof of that fact, It la world
wide. Socialism, on essential points,
is the same all over the world.
Socialism Is not opposed to the
American flag. American Socialists
use the flag. They use the red flag
also as an international symbol The
stars and strifes would not do in
England or Germany, but the red
flag, representative of universal broth
erhood, can be used anywhere. The
red flag is not the symbol of anarchy
Anarchists use the black flag.
Socialism is not anarchy. It Is
the opposite of It. Anarchy believes
in no government. Socialists believe
in further organization, a perfected

Socialism Is not narrow. The fact '
that it includes all races andi all be
liefs proves this. It expects to win
the world, andi It could not do this
and would not deserve to do tt, If It
had designs on censoring the beliefs,
or peculiar mannerisms, or ways of
thought, of . anyone. It wishes on
ly to end exploitation and secure
higher and Juster civilization.
Socialism Is opposed to dividing
up. The. workers now divide up with
the owners of the machine, and So
cialism would stop this outrage.
Socialism is the friend of the
home. Uunder capitalism twoflftha
of the people are renters, and an
other fifth own homes under incum
brance. Socialism will make H pos
sible for all to own good comfort
able homes, free of debt.
Socialism is a friend to religion.
At present so-called "Christendom"
la an armed camp, where poverty
and crime are visible everywhere.
Socialism will end war and poverty
and estbllsh full religious tolerance.
Under these conditions religion
could thrive aa it can not now.
Socialism Is a friend to marriage.
Under the present conditions thous
ands of girls are bebrayedl into white
slavery for the profit of it, and other
thousands forced to prosltution by
economic necessity. Many m-em and
women are unable to marry, and
many who do marry are unable to
raise their children as they should
be. rdbed. When Socialism Insures
to each worker employment at all
imes and the full product of his
toll, there will be no mora forcing of
women to prostitution, no more slum
lfe, no more fear of getting married
because of poverty. Theni marriage
can occur and every family will be
