It was not until I finished reading Kautsky's book that I had occasion to see Vandervelde's book "Socialism versus the State" (Paris, 1918). A comparison of the two books suggests itself automatically. Kautsky was the theoretical leader of the Second International (1899-1914), while Vandervelde, in his capacity as President of the International Socialist Bureau, was its formal representative. The two represent the utter bankruptcy of the Second International, and both of them, with the skill of experienced journalists, "artfully" hide this bankruptcy, and their own collapse and desertion to the bourgeoisie, under Marxist shibbolets.

In neither of them do we find even a trace of what pervades all the works of Marx and Engels, and of what distinguishes Socialism from the bourgeois caricature of it, namely, the elucidation of the problems of revolution, as distinguished from those of reform, the ( 121 )
