American socialism and syndicalism
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Another word with which we have to deal when studying the problems of industrial reform is "Syndicalism." As yet the word is but vaguely known and its connotation is still somewhat of a mystery to the general public. This new movement, which originated in France and like Socialism with no definite formula or unified creed, departs from the teaching of the conservative Socialists on the question of democratic action. Though the word is not generally used in this country, still the basic principles which underlie Syndicalism are being advocated everywhere by the Revolutionary Socialists. This will be brought out more clearly as we study the more pronounced articles of faith of this strange movement.
