Its form must and will grow out of, and be determined by, the condition of the struggle. The conditions after the revolution will be different from the conditions existing in the capitalist countries at the moment.

In this task the League will receive the support of all the power of the proletarian state, in contradistinction to the state of affairs before the revolution when the Leagues worked under the greater or lesser difficulties produced by the particular nature of the persecution adopted by the capitalist state. It is therefore obvious that the forms of organization will radically differ. In between the old and comparatively useless form of organization and the perfected 37
