Louis Blanc's "Socialist's Catechism"
From The Spirit of the Age, another early translation from the French socialist movement, the "Socialist's Catechism," by Louis Blanc. Like the excerpts from Proudhon's Confessions of a Revolutionist, this originally appeared in the London Weekly Tribune. This is unabashed state socialism, but it's an important example of it, from one of the most active socialist spokespeople of the 1848 era.
