Materialist Conception of the History and Actual
Materialist Conception of the History and Actual. These are the beginnings of modern socialism. We find here the line which separates it from all the rest. It is now a current of opinion that modern socialism is a normal and thus and inevitable product of history. Its political action, which may in future involve delays and set-backs but never henceforth a total absorption, begin with the International. Nevertheless, the Manifesto precedes it. Its teaching is of prime importance in the light which it throws on the proletarian movement, which movement indeed had its birth and development independently of any doctrine.
