Transcript bourgeois camp? (Let us observe, in passing, that in thw respect also, Kautsky is merely treading m the footsteps the Russian Mensheviks. There are among the Mei.. iheviks any number of people who know all passages from Marx and Engels, but not one of them has attempted, between April and November, 1917, and between November, 1917 and November, 1918, to examine and to discuss the question of the Commune type of State.

There is absolutely nothing in that procedure of ours of which we ought to feel ashamed. I print my theses in full, and there I say quite plainly, addressing the timorous and hesitat- ( 52 ) ( 1
