The Socialist Party is the consistent enemy of the capitalist class. Our aim to replace capitalism by socialism because it is absolutely necessary for the progress of our species and the future development of society. Many are convinced that if capitalism is allowed to continue, we will be plunged into barbarism. If humanity is to advance it must move on to socialism which is the common ownership of the means of production and their democratic organisation and management by all the people in a society free of classes, class divisions and class rule. Socialism is the democratic organisation of production for use, of production for abundance, of plenty for all, without the exploitation of man by man. Socialism is the 'union of the whole world into an worldwide associations of free and equal peoples, disposing in common of the natural resources and wealth of our earth. Production is organised for use, not for profit. Production is carried on in a planned, coordinated democratically-controlled way, not on the basis of whether or not the private capitalist can make a profit on the market. The technology, the raw materials, the workforce with the skills required to produce abundance for all, is already available. It is only necessary to free them from the paralysing hand of capitalism and production-for- profit. Where there is abundance for all, the nightmare of a precarious existence disappears. There is security for all no longer dependent on whether or not the employer makes a fat profit out of your labour. There is not only a high standard of living, but every scientific advance is followed by a rising standard of living and a declining working-day. Where there is abundance for all, and where no one has the economic power to exploit and oppress others, the basis of classes, class division and class conflict vanishes. The basis of a ruling state, of a government by coercion, with its prisons and police and army, withers away. Police and thieves, prisons and violence are inevitable where there is economic inequality, or abundance for the few and scarcity for the many. They disappear when there is plenty for all, therefore economic equality, therefore social equality. Where there is abundance for all, and where all have equal access to the fruits of the soil and the wealth of industry, the mad conflicts and wars between nations and peoples vanish. Where men and women are free of economic exploitation, of economic servitude, of economic bondage, they are free for the first time to develop as a human being among other human beings, free to contribute to a new culture and a new humanity.
