Transcript r m„ has produced a monstrous theoretical muddle which turns Marxism into Liberalism, and in practice, amounts to a series of idle, angry, vulgar sallies against the Bolsheviks. Let the reader judge for himself: "Landownership on a large scale could no longer be maintained, and the revoultion had put an end to it. It became clear at once that it must be handed over to the peasant population" [this is not true, Mr. Kautsky.

Some fraction of Socialism would then have been realized." . . . _. Kautsky, as usual, operates by means of his famous on-one-hand-on-the-other-hand." He places side by side ( 08 )
