Transcript i Stalin, Foreign Language Publishing House. Moscow, 1953, in the lecture, "Foundations of Leninism." delivered to the students at Svcrdlov University, we read: "Hence the third conclusion: that under imperialism wars cannot be averted, and that a coalition between the proletarian revolution in Europe and the colonial revolution in the East in a united world front of revolution against the world front of imperialism is inevitable." Thus, eysn_uL 1924,. i*ittrrr~~~ni Communist was~afrcadv fgjmuleilcd hy Slali'njamc- ^ l3'' C"IK|||''sl_nf A"11 -is P prc[i7de ""■^SlSfoOT: The passage you just read weis from a speech lhal Sledin made way back in 1924.

ScHWARZ: The Communista_-beiieye thev are nm^jJgES^y-verge of total ■Svorld eonauest. I will simply give three q^ie^afTonsfrom modern-day Communist authorities to establish this point.

These are his lectures, delivered io the Marxist-Leninist Institute of Yenan: "jiVheit is lhe most fundamental and conimriTr^Tiily of us ConmuujTsj_]iany~- ffJernhcrs?

It is taken from Internationalism mill Nationalism, by Liu Shao-chi. This wees written in November, 1918. Consequently, it's a little behind the times. Page 24: "The liberated peoples already exceed one-fourth of the population of lhe globe. This signifies a regeneration of the world and hears testimony to the scope and level that mankind has already attained in its struggle for emancipation. Undoubtedly the number of the liberated peoples from now on will grow day by day. It will not be long before the whole of mankind will be freed from imperialisl domination. No matter whal setbacks the struggle men sustain, ils general trend toward liberation is an inevitable and irresistible law of history." I.ilicreiled means conquered. And Communist progress lias been such since I'll,'! lhal lhe conquered people now exceed one-third of the population of the globe and not merely one-fourth. To anv honest person, iherc can be no doubt lhat lhe Communists believe that they are on the verge of total world conquest. And every move in their world strategy is dedicated to this end. Smoot: Why arc the Communists so confident lhat llicy will continue lo suc- ei'cd in their program of world conquest? Schwarz: Their confidence springs not merely from an examination of the existing forces operating in ihe world, not merely from the record of incredible success Ilieil lhe Communist program has written, but from the very fundamental beliefs of communism itself, li is true eeil ei reading of the record nf Communist progress would entirely justify such confidence. To emphasize this. I would like to repeat the bold figures of Communisl enhance. I don't feel we can repeat them too often. Lenin began Bolshevism \vith_ seventeen supporters "Tn 1'Alii Lenin con- ejuere'd Russia with forty thousand ETolslicvisls in 1917. The "party ol'Lciiin is today hei(x)nicnjeje_rnastcry of_900 million people. That recorcl alone would fully justify their confidence, but the confidence springs from a far deeper source. When they were but a ragged handful, they were equally confident. To understand this confidence, we must go back to Marxism and the axioms of Communist thinking. Kns\ Marx was a follower of ihe German philosopher Hegel, and as a youth lie avidly^ffliraccdtheTTegelian ^cjxale ■llii' present-day philosophy of enmnm- ' in IcrmcTI iliaiccTjcal material ism." B .le was a devoteeof lhe dialectic long before he became a Communist, and his entire Communist concepts were built from the dialectic. l^ie dialectic is a complex philosophy. But within il there are certain funda- menlal ideas very important lo any understanding of communism. (Jtc first ■ idea is the idea of progress. The dialectic teaches that within lhe- infinite variety of change throughout the universe there is operative a directive principle of progress, and this principle has chosen and ordained that they shall conquer the world. Of this they have' no vestige of doubt. Tbe same forces that have ordained the rising of the sun in the morning have ordained the Communist conquest of thc earth. The second feature of lhe dialectic concerns the pathway nLjirogress, The goal is never approached in a direct, persistent, straight line. It is not even approached in a circuitous, winding pathway. The dialectic mode of progress consists of" a_series of advances and retreats. Forward, abrupt about-turn, re- treat. And through this forward-backward process, the goal is inevitably reached. Within the dialectic, even though heading away from the goed. you are still fulfilling tin- scientific method of approach. Therefore, the reverse movement must be carried oul with the same fervor and determination as the advance movement. L£niu outlines ihis dialectic principle in Tils book: one ste-ji fnrward. two steps bacjrzBSTraXhe.r jikin to the jirocess of hammering in_a_nail.

When tnat blow has spent itself, the entire direction of progress is reversed anil the goal is achieved through a series of backward- forward motions. Frequently, we are so foolish that we endeavor to determine the goal nl the Communists by the precise' direction in which they are moving at the moment. The technique of ad- Pa gc 9
