"Increasingly, the basic needs and interests of the vast majority of our people demand a fundamental change in our economic and social system, in which both wealth and political power are monopolized by a privileged group of industrialists and bankers.
For the rest of us there is constant insecurity, preparation for war, ever-rising prices and soaring rents, unjust taxation, persistent mass unemployment, degradation of culture and public education, the fanning of racism , victimization by crime and corruption in governing circles. The quality of life undergoes steady deterioration."
