The property question

The key question for socialists is who owns the resources of society and decides how to allocate them.

At the moment we are fighting to force the owners’ club to give us a few scraps from their enormous wealth. It’s a daily, hourly fight.

We need to own the world’s resources in common – the factories, the machines, the transport, the science and technology.

Then we’ll be able to decide democratically how that wealth is distributed. Then we won’t need to fight any more.

Anything less than this is simply condemning ourselves to eternal pleas or eternal struggle.

From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.
