Second International (politics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (193 words)
The Second International was an organization formed in 1889 (after several years of preparation) by socialist and labour parties who wished to work together for international socialism.
The Second International dissolved during World War I, as the separate national parties that composed it did not maintain a unified front against the war, instead generally supporting their respective nation's role.
Additionally, the Second International was not as revolutionary as the later Third and Fourth Internationals, in most countries supporting the legitimacy of electoral rule.
