With regard to simple and fundamental questions, such methods, as a fact, are not resorted to -- The fact that they are resorted to, with regard to complex questions, shows that oligarchic methods are necessary) -- CHAPTER V REVOLUTIONARY OLIGARCHIES -- Oligarchy in Trade Union and Labour Parties -- These parties at first purely democratic, but oligarchy has inevitably developed in them -- Socialist and Trade Union leaders inevitably become oligarchs-that is to say, more than mere employees -- Experience has shown certain special gifts to be necessary in these leaders. When once in power, it is difficult to dismiss them -- A "gregarious inertia" characteristic of the majority in all revolutionary parties, the energy necessary for leadership being found in small minorities only -- The ambitions of rival oligarchs -- Causes which solidify the position of leaders actually in office: examples from Germany and Italy -- The oligarchs of "The International," Marx and Engels -- Lassalle and Proudhon admit that purely democratic wills must be merged in those of the leaders -- Recent admission by socialists to the same effect -- Syndicalist oligarchs, such as Labriola -- Open repudiation of pure democracy by modern revolutionaries -- CHAPTER VI DISAPPEARING ILLUSIONS -- Means and a general objective. Impotence of any purely democratic will to prescribe complex means -- The conception of a will which is purely democratic as to objectives, though not as to means -- Confusion in this conception between will and wish -- A general wish for welfare through governmental action -- This is totally different from a will as to complex means -- Welfare, as subserved by government, is a plexus of definite means to a generally wished-for end -- The average man wholly incompetent to define this plexus of means for himself, or to specify it in a definite way to others

The reconstruction of religious belief by W. H Mallock( Book )

8 editions published between 1905 and 2012 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike many thinkers of his time, the author did not seek to reconcile science and religion. Denying that religion can rest on a scientific basis, he insisted instead on the key roles of faith and dogma. Here he attacks scientific and philosophical apologies for religion as "looking for flaws where no flaws exist."
