Excerpt from Industrial Peace, Vol. 6

There are many things from which, for a just judgment of them, you must stand back some way. One of these is the industrial condition of England. In the thick of the "industrial conflict" it is difficult to be sure that the country's state is normal and hopeful. And, whatever we may think in our hearts, we are too apt to grumble loudly to each other. Out of the abundance of our implicit confidence, perhaps, we indulge in a luxury of misgiving. But, to judge from common talk, English industry is beset by difficulties on every side: the spirit is bad, and the problems drift along to a catastrophe, since method and machinery for solution are lacking, or at least ineffective.

Is the state of England really so unhappy? Does the country lurch awkwardly from crisis to crisis, losing a little blood each time, a little of its nerve, a little of its stock of goodwill and of its hold on method? If you believe this, get away to the continent, and ask the Swiss, for instance, what they think. You need not, like some foreigners, regard England as an industrial heaven. But your examination of their ways will give you a better measure of the progress England has made. In England a certain large beneficial idea has been adopted by most of the population - the idea that to industry may be applied what may be called the parliamentary method. In Switzerland this idea startles both sides. For lack of a parliamentary outlet for industrial questions by an appropriate organisation within and for industry, industrial problems drift into politics, to the detriment of industrial peace and of the political tone of the country as a whole. In England it is no mere lip-service that is paid to the parliamentary idea. You cannot have "Government by discussion" unless the parties meet: and they cannot meet profitably unless their meetings are properly constituted and organised. In too many parts of Switzerland they do not meet at all. In England the membership of employers in employers associations, and of men in trade unions, and, moreover, the frank recognition of these organisations reciprocally as qualified representatives to discuss and decide, have established themselves once and for all. The Swiss are imperfectly organised on both sides.
