Transcript noff. By means of obvious sophism the living revolutionary soul is ripped out of Marxism, in which everything is accepted except the revolutionary methods of struggle, their propaganda and preparation, and the education of the masses for that purpose,. Kautsky mechanically 'reconciles' the fundamental idea of Socialist-Chauvinism, namely, the defense of one's fatherland in the present war, with a diplomatic—that is, verbal—concession to the 'left wing' in the form of abstention from voting the war credits and of a formal proclamation of one's opposition to the war.

I quoted the definition of Imperialism given by Kautsky: "Imperialism is the product of a highly developed industrial capitalism. It embodies the endeavor of every industrial capitalist nation to annex or to subject ( 8 )
