Industrialism and Private Property

W E have considered industrialism hitherto as a technical rnethod of production, without regard to the system of distribution, or to political

conditions except in so far as they affect the mere possibility of large-scale industI),. It is necessary now to undo this artificial simplification. Two institutions especially have affected industrialism profoundly, namely, private property and nationalism. Each of these two institutions has, in its turn, been greatly changed by industrialism, and the two together have become amenace to the continued existence of our civilization. I propose to consider the interactions of industrialism first with private property, and then with nationalism.
