Co-operation is the road to friendship and mutual understanding; it substitutes "we" for "I" and extends family affection from private life to public life. Co-operation substitutes the service motive for the profit motive; puts human interests above property interests and holds out to every human being an equal opportunity to share in the good things of life. If you believe in these things, give the Co-operative your full support and help us to build a new social order founded on these principles of right and justice Co-operation is more than an economic reform movement; it is a philosophy of life.
