Transcript tariat; the other has brought only the trenches, the holiday of a proletariat collapsing under the police lash. To-day's May Day is throwing light upon the shattered Labour movement. The old International, the first act of which was the introduction of this international holiday, has fallen asunder. In all the countries of the Imperialist world there has appeared a differentiation between the revolutionary proletariat and the social-traitors. The powerful working- class organisations have split: on one side, the revolutionaries ; on the other, the men who desire to remain slaves. This cleft in the Labour movement is aj pledge of the re-establishment of international unity. The falsifiers of Marxism, who have distorted the "Communist Manifesto" to allege that the history of social progress is the history of the class struggle except during periods of war, have not only become generals without an army, but have ceased to be leaders altogether. They are nothing but charlatans, supported by the capitalist class, and animated by the intention of blinding the workers. But the stupor of the working-class is coming to an end. The salvation of the Russian proletarian revolution will come under the blows of international Imperialism. The International being born at to-day's First of May holiday will, in virtue of its very essence, be neither the instrument of capitalist peace nor the weapon of capitalist war—despite Kautsky's deception of himself and of the masses. This Internation will itself be a new war—an international civil war; it will be the further guide and support of the Russian Socialist revolution. We can understand impatience in expecting the international revolution. Revolutionary Russia has already done such a great deal towards the liberation of the workers of all countries, towards the international revolution, that the workers of the world will never be able to give it all the thanks that are due. But any admission of pessimism on the part of the proletariat of revolutionary Russia would be treachery after the manner of the western European Labour leaders. May each of these First of May holidays serve as a living symbol ! One of them—the holiday of the Russian workers —the victorious May Day—serves as a symbol or example of the beginning of the reign of Socialism.
