Karl Marx comments on the unity programme (Gotha programme) of the German Democratic Workers Party and the People's Party.
Every step of real movement is more important than a dozen programmes. If, therefore, it was not possible and the conditions of the item did not permit it to go beyond the Eisenach programme, one should simply have concluded an agreement for action against the common enemy. But by drawing up a programme of principles (instead of postponing this until it has been prepared for by a considerable period of common activity) one sets up before the whole world landmarks by which it measures the level of the Party movement.
