Morris Speech to Socialistic League
William Morris: First public speech, after becoming member of Socialistic League.
¶ When the change comes, it will embrace the whole of society, and there will be no discontented class left to form the elements of a fresh revolution. It is necessary that the movement should not be ignorant, but intelligent. What I should like to have now far more than anything else, would be a body of able, high-minded, competent men, who should act as instructors. I should look to those men to preach what Socialism really is, not a change for the sake of change, but a change involving the very noblest ideal of human life and duty: a life in which every human being should find unrestricted scope for his best powers and faculties.
