Be a Socialist or Communist!
Who we are & how you can be one today!
A brief history of Socialism
Count Henri de Saint-Simon
Count Henri de Saint-Simon is often credited with originating Socialism, seeing it as a logical outgrowth of Christianity. In The New Christianity, he urged the state to organize the common exploitation of resources as directed by scientists and intellectuals. He originated the famous phrase: "From each according to his ability; to each according to his work."
Charles Fourier believed that social harmony would result if society were organized into small, self-sufficient communities called phalanges.
Robert Owen also wanted to reorganize society, but he wanted factory owners to do the organizing, arguing that it was in their own interest. In 1813, Owen published A New View of Society, urging the establishment of self-sufficient factory communities, which were proven to be profitable and productive. Several Owenite communities were established, including Owen's greatest experiment, 20,000 acres at New Harmony, Indiana. However, most of the Owenite communities failed as a result of mismanagement and hostility from the outside world.

How to be a Socialist
If you are a blue-collar worker, by all means, join! Membership is free for you all.
These Socialists and Communists failed to realize that our greed, our materialism, and our tendency to compete are far more important to us than equality. We all want social mobility. We all want to be better and richer than the next person. We all aspire to become just like the factory owners for whom we are working for.
If you agree with these ideas then come be a Classical Liberalist, instead!
Sincerely, the Classical Liberalists.
