Transcript Of these two mistakes the first is probably the greater, leading as it does to a pedantic and hide bound reliance on formulae. And the second is productive of a waste and muddle in which one would not be able to see the wood for trees. The solution is a middle course steered with intelligence and with constant reference to the conditions of work and the experience gathered on the way. A form of organization must be built which can adapt itself to the particular conditions in which it is proposed to work, without a stiffness and rigidity bound with red tape on the one hand and a confusion of method on the other. Only recently have many of our Leagues begun systematically to establish nuclei in the workshops or indeed to attempt to accomplish anything at this vital point of capitalist production. In this task we are entering upon a new phase of our activity, we are leaving completely behind us the old form of organization which, with the advance of modern industry has become useless. We have before us a heavy task which must not be lightly undertaken. It is a work which will demand the unselfish efforts of every one of our members. The new form of organization must be one which will use the best in everyone of our members. The old form of organization used the best in a faithful few only. We must collect our experiences both large and small and in our forward march refer constantly to them. Having mapped out our course, scorning with cruel thoroness all half measures and compromises, we must follow it to the bitter end. The nature of our basic principles and the tasks before us are known to us all. What remains to us is to build an organization which will most effectively pursue our struggle and in this we require the whole hearted efforts of each and every one of our members. Many of the subjects treated in this booklet could have been dealt with at greater length. We have, however, not done so for two reasons. The first of these is that we do not possess any reliable and detailed information of the fluctuation of the membership of our Leagues, on their composition, of the activities of their branches or of the conditions of the young workers. And secondly, it should be remembered that this booklet is written from an international view point and does not contain specific instructions applicable to every possible form of local or even national conditions, which must
