Transcript accidentally—one little thing; namely, that the protection of minorities is extended by the ruling party in a bourgeois democracy only to the other bourgeois parties, while on all serious, fundamental issues, the working-class gets, instead of the "protection of minorities," martial law ana pogroms. The more developed democracy is, the nearer at hand is the danger of a pogrom or civil war in connection with any profound jwlitical divergence which threaten* the existence of the bourgeoisie.

Or take the bourgeois parliaments. Is n to be supposed that learned Mr. Kautsky has never heard of the fact that the more democracy is developed, the more do the bourgeois parliaments fall under 1jhe control of the Stock Exchange and the bankers?
