Transcript ■■■Ml J —Wide World Pholo Factory and office workers were ordered to march in parade in Prague, Czechoslovakia. They carry drawings of Gottwald, Dimitrov, and Lenin. Sign says: "We build the republic and thus for peace we fight." venue- may vary, but the goal remains unalterable and absolute the inevitable Communist conquest of the world. An understanding of Ihis feature of the dialectic will shed greal light on the remarkable about-turns so characteristic of communism eunl so puzzling lo the superficial observer. Smoot: Every time a Khrushchev replaces a Malenkov every time there is anv perceptible change' eel all in per- sonnel ,,r party line among the Communists many oh-,tut- in America seem lo think that the change reflects trouble in lhe Soviel Union, and seem lo think that basic Communist policies eire therefore altered. Schwarz: The third feature of the dialectic concerns the actual dynamic of progress. In any phase ol advance, the dynamic is the conflict between two Forces in opposition. Everything in.existence is interpenetrated by ils opposite, and every force is in conflict with its opposing force. Within the dialectic, the- progressive force- is called lhe "thesis"; lhe reactionary force is called lhe "antithesis"; and the conflict of thesis einel antithesis determines Ihe race ami direction nf progress. Now, we come lo lhe heart of the dialectic. This conflict for a period create- slow, gradual change'. But inevitably a critical point is reached. Al this point certain changes leike place. lhe gradual change's give rise In rapid change, lhe tin-sis negates the antithesis. In dialectic jargon, it is a transformation of quantity into quality. and tlie emergence of an entirely new direction nf progress known as lhe "synthesis." Therefore, at the heart of progress there lies this system: thesis- Pace 10 antithesis conflict, leading to the critical point, wilh the negation of the antithesis by the thesis, eunl tin' emergence of a qualitatively different state: the synthesis. As indicated. Karl Marx vvas a de- votee eif ihe dialectic. Ih- thought dia- lectically. His slogan was: nature acts dialeelie eillv. And he analyzed lhe economic system in terms nf the dialectic. His conclusion: within capitalism we bene' a perfect manifestation of ihe dialectic. It is lhe progressive thesis of labor, dieworking class, known e|s ihe jUiJcJimal- in conflict with the reaction- arv anlithcsis of ownership of the means of production, thc owning class being known as thc bourgeoisie. These two classe's eire in basic, inescapable conflict. There is no possibility of common interest or collaboration between them.

Se mv vi;z: ■• es, bul it is interesting to note that Karl Marx never for a moment considered himself to be the inventor of the class war. The class wen- is a fact of being, even as the law eel gravity is a fact of being. ^i^Uim^dh- .■eecr,',! ||„. |i„ „f i.r.nali" Kjuj^Mir- discovered _lhe class vv.ljv When Newton discovered the law of gravity, the whole science of astronomy took on new life. When Karl Marx dis- covered the class war. he believed, and the Communists have since contended, that thev were scientifically in a position to interpret the inevitable future pattern of events. ^jni- war is theoretically hi two classes TE Te7lUI'eU'eeisic elflll iill' pr"olclariat. However, history has ere- ated Im each class an armed vanguard. For the bourgeoisie, il has provided the mechanism of the state; and for the proletariat, il heis provided the class-conscious, enlightened Communist party. Thus the class war manifests ilself as war between the Communisl party and the stale. Originally, ibis weir exi.-ls primarily within em individual stale. Bul with the progress of history, the proletariat, led by the Communist parly, has cunjc_-DJ Ijiwci in_Jlmssjn_ in China, in ''liis11'1'" JittKifii-: whereas the bourgeoisie' has more and more' come under the direction of the American imperialists.

An Communis! concept is: Amcu XtHSshn—A^merie-ei emd China, arc ei' war. This war is a facl of being itself.

I he Communists today, everywhere '" the world, profess themselves to be ll"' devotees of peace. Peace is the- mot common word mi their lips.
