THE PARTIES

Thus our study of parties seems to suggest that they profoundly modify the working of the representative principle. Money plays its part directly and indirectly. The party bureaucracy forms a vested interest which somewhat distorts political tendency in a conservative direction. It is apt to place too much stress on the value of maintaining positions and of continuing to work the machine. In a party of movement this tendency is most important, for the fear of offending too often makes its attitude negative where constructiveness is the only justification for its existence. It becomes involved in the very structure of society which it was formed to alter. The machine is constantly being taken to pieces and remade in preparation for a day that, with each remaking, recedes farther into the distance. Only the insistence of the public to whom it is responsible can overcome this constant tendency to misrepresent it or to slow down what inclinations there are for movement. That insistence can only find its expression in the proper selection as leaders of men for whom the machine will take its place as means and not end.
If the party of movement tends towards equation with the party of resistance, so it must be added does the obverse tendency apply. That is the reason why so many changes advocated by the former are habitually carried out after their own fashion and in modified form by the latter. For that reason also it has always shewn a greater adaptability to change, a smoother development than its opponents, and a greater continuity.
