There is assuredly no use in what Mr. and Mrs. Bosanquet call "the wretched war of catchwords and party shibboleths like Socialism and Individualism," and I hope, in attempting to supplement their contribution, that I shall avoid such controversy. Mr [Sidney] Ball has given reasons for thinking that Mr. and Mrs. Bosanquet take an unduly low view of the Socialist movement. To this it is replied that Mr. Ball, "for whose ideals and purpose" Mr. Bosanquet has the highest respect, does not properly represent Socialism, and certain writings of my own are brought in, apparently as an "awful example" of the "penny pamphlets which go out ... among the working-classes." - Introductory paragraph.
