"H is true that the proposed one

"hut we arc against it none the less

ngninst the entire military system."
"It baa often been said both here
and in the United States that social

asked. "No, the socialists would not
leavo tho Fatherland defenseless," re
plied Bernstein. "Wo are against
the military system as it exists. We
nro ngain9t it because itis a 'semi
feudal' system, n military system In
which the common man, the man of
people, has little chanco to rise, in
fact, none at all.
"In France, as Napoleon said,
'every soldier .has the marshal's baton
in bis knapsack.' In theory, at least,
n soldier in tho French nrmy may
rise to tho highest rank. How it
works out practically, I do not know.
In our 'semi-feudal' system, this
theory even docs not exist. We
stand for a sy&lcm of national de
fense in which tho people have a part
in tho organization and in tho re
sponsibilitysomething in the na
ture of a militia or citizens nrmy,
but we arc against war."
