Haddock, Bruce Anthony 1995. Socialism. New Perspective 1 (1) , pp. 20-21.

Full text not available from this repository.


Socialism as a political movement was very much a response to the consequences of industrialisation. Liberalism and capitalism emerged in socialist argument as Janus-faced villains, defending a conception of political and economic freedom which effectively perpetuated the subordination of the working classes. Socialists might not agree about precisely what was wrong with the status quo; nor could they necessarily agree on a common programme for the future. But there was a general consensus in socialist circles that the ideals of the French Revolution liberty, equality, fraternity - could not be attained in a political system built upon an individualist foundation.
