Transcript from the theoretical standpoint, they have the advantage of understanding the conditions, course and general results of the proletarian revolution. The immediate aim of the Communists is the same as that of all other proletarian parties : organisation of the proletariat as a class, overthrow of the supremacy of the capitalist class, conquest of political power by the proletariat." The Czech workers who, being in the ranks of their National Army, are thereby serving the interests of the S.R.-Cadet-Octobrist counter-revolution, are in reality the victims of the Czech "Social-Democrats" and emigrants imi Russia—men who use the nationalist banner to prevent the organisation of the Czech proletariat as a class. No mercy can be shown to these traitors, both there and here seeking to find a compromise with the bourgeoisie, and supporting the counter-revolution;—at first under the cloak of neutrality, but now openly—just at the moment of the workers' greatest struggle. The Russian counter-revolution must be crushed as quickly as possible, in the interests of both the Czech and the world revolutions. The Revolutionary Tide in Austria. ("Pravda," June 8, 1918.) The pulse of the Austrian revolution is daily beating quicker and quicker. The stormy tide of events is daily washing away more and more of the foundations of the existing order, constantly breaking off new buttresses. The governments rest within the country only on a thin crust. It has long lost all hope of the masses of the subject races : but it is now a question of lower middle-dlasses of the ruling races who are raising their voices against the new alliance with increasing energy. The Austro-Hungarian, and still more the SwTiss, papers show us that, while the imperialist classes are closing their ranks around the German alliance, the mass of the lower middle-class is adopting a benevolent attitude towards the Entente Powers, trying to get rid of the war and of their ally, Germany. The refusal of the war-weary soldiers on the Italian front to serve imperialist interests is a parallel phenomenon with that of the new orientation of bourgeois circles. (33)
