Nothing But Civil Strife

Year: 1898

Description: Jules Guesde sits in the parlor of a bourgeoisie home. He argues his side of a rift that divided the Socialists in the late 1890s. Guesde felt they should not comprimise with the capitalist government. They must oppose the bourgeoisie at all costs, "With the internationale, no more army, no more military, nothing but civil strife." (Avec l'Internationale, plus d'armee, plus de militaires, rien que des guerres civiles)
