Bolshevik Socialism France


Original vintage French Socialist propaganda poster issued by French state information featuring a dynamic design of a man wearing a hat marked with a red star, holding a pistol gun above an image of a ruined house against a red fire background and people running with their arms up, the text in a bleak grey box representing a miserable life and in a brighter clear box representing a better future reading:
Bolshevik socialism... is to seize the land for the benefit of the State, to steal the cattle, to have made the peasant a beast of burden and to have reduced him to the deepest misery. It is to flout Religion, to assassinate priests and believers, to defile the churches, it is to have beatified Lenin and deified Joseph Stalin. It is to have extended the death penalty to simple theft committed to the detriment of the State, it is to have dared to apply this sentence to 12 year old children! It is to humiliate the worker by lowering him to the role of brainless machine, it is to make him earn 200 roubles a month, that is to say less than 400 francs! It is to have suppressed the middle classes, petty trade, crafts, it is to have abandoned on the roads 9 million children who died of hunger and cold. It's a grey life, without joy and without hope, it's espionage, denunciation and torture, it's misery, it's the shot in the back of the neck!
French socialism... Our socialism is respect for the spiritual, corporate and union traditions of our working class, it is the reintegration of the world of work into the national community. It is to give each worker a salary corresponding to his vital needs, to his works, to his national and social role. It is the change of human relations in the factory by the community spirit, it is the liberation of the middle classes and the peasantry from the capitalist grip. It is to bring the solutions which will give to each worker in his work, initiative and responsibility, it is to provide him the means to become, in his turn, company manager. It is the protection of the family and the child, the popularisation of sport, the fight against the slum, the improvement of the life of the peasant as that of the worker, and this despite the heavy difficulties of the moment. It is for all French people the promise of a better future, it is for the worker, the peasant, the craftsman, the hope for a dignified and free life! It is the suppression of the proletariat.
