John Ross Campbell


“Here are certain developments taking place in society. Those developments are likely to lead to increasing struggles between the classes. They are likely to lead to new wars and to a general condition of social breakdown. It is, therefore, our duty as a party to point out to the people that those developments are taking place and that they are unescapable. To point this out to the people so that they can understand those developments, so that when the situation arises, such as we have pointed out, there will be an organised Communist Party in the working class, capable of handling themselves any social struggle that is likely to take place.” — The Communist Party On Trial
