Henry Demarest Lloyd: The Prophetic Tradition

Harvey O'Connor

Abstract


"I am," said Henry Demarest Lloyd, "a socialist-anarchist-communist-individualist-collectivist-cooperative-aristocratic-democrat." In less exuberant moments, the great American social reformer referred to himself as a socialist and a democrat. The two words, he insisted, were synonymous. As he thundered in book, speech, and letter against the iniquities of monopolistic capitalism and painted the glories of a social system animated by love and mutual aid, he was more the Hebrew prophet than the devotee of any "ism."
