OTHER PIONEERS

OF

AMERICAN SOCIALISM,

BY

CHARLES SOTHERAN.

“I honor the generous ideas of the Socialists, the magnificence of their theories,
and the enthusiasm with which they have been urged."-Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1883.

“We believe that Government, like every other intelligent agency, is bound to do
good to the extent of its ability-that it ought actively to promote and increase the
general well being—that it should encourage and foster Industry, Science, Invention
Intellectual, Social and Physical Progress.

Such is our idea of the sphere of
Government."-Horace Greeley, 1850.
