50 Years Ago: Socialism & Reforms
The S.P.G.B. fully believes that the whole is greater than the part, wastes no time advocating this or that reform, but spend their energies in educating the workers in the fact that in Socialism alone lies their emancipation.
One reason our membership does not increase as rapidly as that of some other parties is that we dangle no “Red Herrings” before the workers. The lot of those whom a political or economic “Red Herring” can allure is one to be pitied and abolished and not one to make political capital out of.
From the SOCIALIST STANDARD, September 1909.
