He was a rather misanthropic socialist. He wrote a book called the ragged trousered philanthropists (arguing the workers were philanthropic as they were kindly allowing the bosses to take most of what they produced). The book contains many arguments for how a socialist society would work and examples of the crushing poverty of British workers at the time but is mostly devoted to examples of moronic devotion to either the Tory or Liberal parties and workers' refusal to act in their own interests. I think you would really like it.
He published it under the name Robert Trestle to avoid being black listed by employers for being a socialist.
