Socialist Editor Says Battle With Capitalism Will Be Fought Here
"As long as the United States survives, capitalism will survive," Tim Wohlforth, editor of The Young Socialist, told a meeting of the Harvard Socialist Club last night. "The choice between capitalism and socialism will have to be made here in America," he maintained.
Until now, Wohlforth stated, the American working class's lack of "class consciousness" has made its tremendous economic power ineffective. On the other hand, the witch hunt and post-war prosperity are both declining, he said, and even "conservative" American labor leaders have spoken of forming an American labor party.
"We must now regroup the heroic people who withstood the witch hunt and unite them with labor," Wohlforth declared. "Then the American working class will, at last, be organized on the political level, and we socialists will be in our world."
