The left wing - S.J. Rutgers

In this collection of five articles written in 1916 the Dutch socialist S.J. Rutgers outlines capitalism's descent into its imperialist phase, the passing of the age of liberal democracy, and the need for a new kind of mass action to replace electoral activity and purely economic strikes. These articles were written as part of a series called "The Left Wing" for the American publication International Socialist Review.
