Transcript form which will evolve after the revolution lies the period upon which we are now entering:— The period of the shop nuclei form of organization. The possibility of the introduction of the new form of organization has been conclusively proved by the experience of the Russian Communist Party in conditions of oppression far more difficult than those at present existing in the most brutaly governed capitalist states. The Russian Party established its organization on shop nuclei in the height of Tsarist oppression, and this form continued to exist to the time of the revolution. The Young Communist League of Russia was established on the shop nuclei system during the Kerensky regime in Petrograd where, as already stated, it met with considerable success. The difficulties at present existing in capitalist countries, the conditions of transport from the homes to the workshops etc., are still present today in Soviet Russia, and in other countries they will be diminished only in a limited degree after the conquest of power, indeed, during the inevitable period of civil war they will be intensified.

On the other hand, however, the objective difficulties of the Party are less than those opposed to the League. According to its strength the Party has a much greater number of shop fractions, which are capable of forming the Party nuclei than the League. Further the Party has certain supports in the nature of shop councils and committees, shop stewards, trade union representatives, all of whom will facilitate the formation and work of the nuclei. Where it is possible it will (be of mutual advantage for the Party and the League to conduct together the work of forming the nuclei; if this I \ 1 7 38
