The Socialist in Action - the Two “Possiblisms”

There is only one Socialism, but there are at the same time two ways of conceiving its realisation: the scientific way - that of the international Socialism - and the “possiblist”. Quite a large number of French Socialists have for a long time been suffering from the latter. Scientific Socialism does not believe that the Social Revolution can be brought about by stages. It is waiting for the social change to take place through the seizure of political power by the working class, and it is with a view to that seizing by force that it is organising the proletariat into a class party. The efforts it makes are all those of recruiting, educating, and organising.
