Excerpt from What Is Socialism?: An Exposition and a Criticism With Special Reference to the Movement in America and England

"Socialism is so vague and contradictory that it cannot stand argument. Its very vagueness commends it to men who will not or cannot take the trouble to think, but in the long run the men who do think will win, if the discussion is only kept up." - Henry George, in letter to the Editor of the Financial Reform Almanac, Liverpool, Eng.

"Class war is murder; class war is fratricide; class war is suicide." - Charles Bradlaugh (the English Radical), in his debate with H. M. Hyndman, the leader of British Marxian Socialism.

"I want to tell you Socialists that... economically, you are unsound; socially, you are wrong; industrially, you are an impossibility." - Samuel Gompers, President of the American Federation of Labor, at the annual meeting, at Boston, 1903.
