Sorry, no etymologies found.
As in the modern world there are now but two classes, with subordinate varieties, -- on the one side the workers to whatever category they belong, and on the other the property owners who do not work, -- the socialist theory of Marx leads us to this evident conclusion: since political parties are merely the echoes and the mouth-pieces of class interests -- no matter what the subvarieties of these classes may be -- there can be substantially only two political parties: the socialist labor party and the individualist party of the class in possession of the land and the other means of production.
