This work, growing out of a San Francisco lecture, suggested Harris' new visionary America, in which he stressed an American religious socialism with "rings" of socialists "nucleated not around a common greed, but around a common God." Cooperation was posited on the one hand against what Harris termed the "labor-snakes, the bloated parasites," of class struggle-minded labor leaders, and on the other hand against the sentimental consciousness of the church.
