Transcript The German imperialists cannot bring these methods to play; and for that reason—and for that only—they fall back upon the "culturo-informative" work of the German Commission. Nevertheless, the "culturo-iinformative" work of the German counter-revolutionaries only assists the revolutionary work of the Communist emigrants from the Central Powers. This militarist propaganda attempts to restore "their native conditions" to the prisoners of war in Russia; and, according to advices from Minsk, Dvinsk, Vilna, and Przemysl, where concentration camps exist, escapes en masse are beginning. In this way the Germam and Austro-Hungarian proletarians will fly to Russia from under the yoke of German militarism. German imperialism will be able to desocialise minds only by having recourse to the methods it has already tried in the Ukraine, at Reval, and at Vollmar : "Hands up !" and then the gallows or the bullet. A School of Social Revolution. ("Pravda," May 15th, 1918.) The counter-revolutionary forces have collected in force. It is quite comprehensible that, amongst the Russian proletarian masses, many should be awaiting the international revolution with impatience. Bolshevism is feeling the full pressure of persecution of the international counter-revolution because Bolshevism is the particular system of ideas which represents the modern revolutionary movement. For the propertied classes, this system of ideas means deadly danger; for the Labour movement it is an inspiring and creative force. After the many buffetings of the war a considerable part of the Western European proletariat ended up in' Russia. We may discover from the diplomatic notes of the German and Austrian Governments what these proletarians and workers have experienced and learnt. We can see that the revolution has had an infectious influence upon these proletarians, from amongst whom large numbers have emigrated to Russia, when we consider certain phenomena, which might almost be called "mass phenomena."
