Peace, instead of bloodshed and violence and destruction.
Security instead of the insecurity of not knowing today whether or not we will have a job and an income tomorrow.
We want to be able to raise our children in decent homes and have them educated in good schools.
We want comfort and prosperity, instead of low living standards, poverty, and hunger.
We want democracy and freedom, instead of regimentation, bureaucracy, racial and religious and national conflict.
These are the things which we seek for our families, friends and neighbours, for our children and grandchildren.
We live in a modern civilisation. We have huge industries. We have undreamed-of natural resources. We have millions of trained and skilled workers. We can produce in one day. what it took our ancestors years to produce. Yet we do not have peace. We do not have prosperity. It is the social system that stands in the way, the system of capitalism. A handful of capitalists control all the wealth and power . They own our jobs and whoever owns our means of living, controls our lives, the lives of you and me and the billions of others. Capitalism works very well indeed when it wages war, killing and maiming, . Capitalism is at its best when it is doing its worst. But it is no good for peace, security and prosperity of the people. Is that what YOU want, a new barbarism where surviving humanity wait for the doom of civilisation and their return to living in caves?
We of the Socialist Party believe there is an alternative. The alternative to capitalism is socialism. We want to take over the industries built by us so that we can have security, peace and freedom. We want to own in common the wealth produced by all of us to produce for peace, not for war. To produce for use, for the needs and comforts of the people, and not for the profits of the corporations. Without capitalism and capitalist profit, we can put an end to want and starvation. We can provide plenty for all, homes fit to live in, comforts and prosperity, self-respect and human dignity. Those are the things we in the Socialist Party all seek. They are the things the Socialist Party stands for.
