Correspondence: Socialist Organisation

H. Scott (Leeds), asks:—

If the S.P.G.B. gained political power, would it not have to start organising industrially, rather than territorially, before we got socialism?

The answer is no. The control of the political machine by a socialist working class means the enacting of common ownership—that is socialism. The Socialist Society will be carried on by the workers, whose common interests will be expressed territorially and industrially and in every field. The production of wealth will result from the organisation of industry arranged democratically by a socialist population.

A correspondent asks if Mr. Ramsay MacDonald and Mr. Philip Snowden were ever members of the Socialist Party.

They have never been members of the Socialist Party.
