The following pamphlet was written in 1939, right after the Saltsjöbaden
Agreement had been signed by the Swedish Trade Union Confederation(LO).
It was largely seen as a way to consolidate the power of the social
democratic leadership through class collaboration with the organized
capitalists. As the pamphlet describes, the mass membership opposed the
concessions every step of the way but was constantly pushed back by
being excluded from votes and through propaganda campaigns. It is a
cautionary tale of where reformism takes on more and more
responsibilities in managing capitalism built on peace between classes.
