Transcript the bourgeoisie. And this in the teeth of all that Marx and Engels said when comparing the bourgeois revolution in France, in 1789-93, with the bourgeois revolution in Germany in 1848! Before taking up the chief "argument" and the leading ideas of the so-called "economic analysis," let me point out that the very first sentences in Kautsky's disquisition show a curious confusion or superficiality, of thought. Our sage says: "Agriculture, and, to be more precise, small peasant production, has hitherto been the economic foundation of Russia.

You will then arrive at the fact that the 66 per cent, majority of Bolsheviks at the fifth Congress of the Soviets were rep- presenting the majority of the population. To this must be added that a considerable section among the Left Social Revolutionaries were in favor of the Soviet regime, and when a section of them raised, in July, 1918, the adventurous banner of an insurrection, two new parties split away from them, the so-called "Populist Communists" and the "Revolutionary Communists," consisting of prominent Social-Revolutionaries whom the old party had been putting forward for important posts in the Government, as, for instance, Gacks and Kolegayeff respectively.
