Around 1900 a famous Dutch anarchist, Domela Nieuwenhuis, said the same of `colonists', because he considered the experiments with different ways of living together that took place in the colonies as a waste of powers that should instead be used for the class struggle (Domela Nieuwenhuis 1921: 177; Poldervaart 1995).
Such an exploration immediately leads to the somewhat singular character of Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis (1846-1919), who led the Dutch socialist movement in the nineteenth century.
The following is a brief sketch of Domela Nieuwenhuis' life and work; the political and social conditions under which Dutch socialism emerged; and the specific character of socialism in The Netherlands.
Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis was born in Amsterdam in 1846 into a highly respected family, with a long heritage of professors, barristers and preachers.
The Social Democratic Union, like the SDV, took the Gotha Programme as its manifesto, but it was the view of Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis which had the greatest influence on the union.
In 1880, Domela Nieuwenhuis wrote the following to Karl Marx: "If I am a socialist, then I have become one under the influence of your pioneering work Das Kapital" (Meyers, 1993, p.
In the 1890s, the isolation of the SDB was also precipitated by conflicts between Domela Nieuwenhuis and the Friesland People's Party which was a political organization stemming from the Friesian electoral movement in which a large number of Friesian organizations participated.
The different views became sharp contrasts, and some of the most prominent opponents came into direct conflict with both Domela Nieuwenhuis himself and the SDB leadership.
Not that the individual is an entity in himself totally separate from others - from the environment in which he lives, but the stronger the individual, the better the society, and thus everything that throttles and stifles the individual must be avoided and resisted (Domela Nieuwenhuis, 1910, p.
But, in spite of all, the rise of socialism in The Netherlands would have been unthinkable if not for Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis. Can he also be blamed that, in its original form, it had no success?
