The Prize-fighters Evidence

The statement always made by the Socialist that the capitalist system is responsible for the horrors of modern society, still awaits the bold economist to explode it. The basis of society, the private ownership of the menus of life, breeds the most hideous manifestations. The capitalist class, who own and control the means of wealth production and distribution, force the working class in order to live to operate those instruments for the profit of the former class. The wealth filched from the producers is sold upon the open market, and the workers, because they only receive a portion thereof as wages in return for their labour-power, cannot buy back the whole of their product. The result is the inevitable congestion of the market, with the consequent stagnation and crisis.
