THE LABOR VOTER 

"Despite the yelling of the capitalists about 
the prosperity which is making workers into 
middle class voters, the Labor vote during 
this prosperity has never been less than 43%. 
These facts/ concludes Mr. Williams, 'reduce 
the usual analysis to nonsense/ New houses 
and washing machines do not make the Labor 
voter a Conservative voter/ 7 

WORKERS IN A REVOLUTION 

"What happens in a revolution is that the 
class for the first time finds itself free to 
think its own thoughts and give some con- 
crete form to its own experience accumulated 
over the generations. Whenever a revolution- 
ary class moves, it establishes a stage for the 
intenational movement/ 7 

THE AMERICAN WORKERS 

"I have to show, and I will, that Marxism and 
its expectation of the independent and crea- 
tive action of the working class is not mere 
wishing or speculation or psychology but a 
scientific process. Without this scientific 
process you either ignore the American work- 
ers or indulge in wild and essentially subjec- 
tive speculations/' 

From Marxism and the Intellectuals
