This was from a pamphlet titled "Introduction to Socialism" that was
written by Paul Sweezy and Leo Huberman in the 1950s. I wouldn't change
their language, nor would I change similar formulations in Marx--or Rosa
Luxemburg for that matter. What we write today is of course another story
altogether.
