Excerpt from Towards Industrial Freedom

Although the following papers were mostly written before the Great War broke out, yet it will be noticed that the consciousness runs through them of a great irnpending crisis and transforma tion of our social arrangements, both in this country and in Western Europe. It may not have been clear at that time exactly how that crisis would come about but now that the War is on us we can see how inevitable in a sense it has been, and how this deadly strife of nations has flowed (in the main) from the hopeless falsity of the social and industrial conditions prevailing in the countries concerned - the falsity of undemo cratic societies divided into classes whose chief object in life was to prey upon each other the falsity of a so-called social order which ignored the rights of women; and the falsity of an in dustrial system whose real object was not public welfare but private gain, not the production of goods for use but the exploitation of labor for.
