Excerpt from Socialism in Local Government
The success of T he Case Against Socialism, issued under the auspices of the London Municipal Society in the early part of 1908, has encouraged the Society to promote the publication of the present volume.
Mr. Balfour, in his prefatory letter to the former book, Observed that the controversy is one vital to the welfare of Society, and it has now come down from the study of the theorist to the market-place and the street corner.
Socialism is not merely the topic of the open-air orator it is actually being put into practice in Local Government. Instead of blowing bubbles in the parks, the Administrative Socialist uses the machinery of local administration for the realisation of his theories. Municipal Socialism is very real, and high rates bring the fact home to all classes of the community.
