Are We Slaves to the Corporations? Sylvester J. McBride.

Are We Slaves to the Corporations?

Chicago: Socialist Party of America, n.d. [ca. 1929-1930]. First Edition. The author, a Boston socialist, decries the stranglehold that corporations have on American life. "These giant corporations, in attaining their present domination, have proved to the the most unscrupulous gang of racketeers in the history of the human race." Plenty more in the same vein, with references to an "orgy of capitalistic robbery," and the like. As for solutions, McBride favors public ownership of factories, railroads, and natural resources. He ends by calling on readers to join the Socialist Party. The pamphlet doesn't contain the year of publication but we would suggest 1929-30, before the onset of the Depression. Not in the standard bibliography on American socialism, Egbert and Persons. SCARCE. Item #1502

Single sheet, 9 inches (230 mm) tall, folded to create [4] pages. Slight toning, outer page edges a big ragged. A Very Good copy of a fragile publication.
