Description

Excerpt from The Catholic Charities Review, 1919, Vol. 3 The most radical of the demands is that of the California Federation of Labor: scientific reorganization of the nation's industry, on the basis of com mon ownership of the means of produc tion. This is Socialism. AS such, it is obviously unacceptable to Catholics and to at least nineteen twentieths of the American people. Inasmuch as the Federation did not amplify or emphasize the proposal, we may hope that it was not intended to be taken seriously. Taken as a whole, the declarations that we have been considering are not only radical in themselves, but Significant of a new movement and spirit in the ranks or organized labor. They indicate that many of the trade unionists are no longer content with the traditional policy of merely seeking higher wages, Shorter hours, and other improvements of their condition as wage earners. Like their brethren in Europe, very many members of our American labor organizations are beginning to think seriously of funda mental changes in our industrial strue ture and relations. It is a movement that cannot safely be ignored. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
