Transcript prison or destitution even if they have little hope of saving their own fives. It is impossible not to see that Stalin, starting off to prove that Socialism could be built in one country (against all Marxist and Leninist theory that Socialism must be international if it is to be Socialism), has succeeded in bringing forth a hybrid monster which is neither capitalism nor Socialism, which preserves all the worst features of the former and gives none of the benefits expected from the latter. If the Socialist reacts from the picture of the U. S. S. R. to follow Trotsky, who still holds aloft the battered banner of world revolution, he must believe that Russia has not been forced along the road to a kind of Tsarist-Fascism by historical necessity but by Stalin. But the Marxist cannot accept this explanation of history in terms of the influence of individuals. He must agree that Russia has become National Socialist instead of Communist of necessity, and that Stalin would have won even if Lenin had lived. The unhappy paradox which faces the Marxist is that the materialist interpretation of history leads him to reject Marx's prophecy of the future. The increasing interdependence of countries has led not to international Socialism, as Marx thought it would, but to a violent attempt by States to do away with that interdependence. The U. S. S. R. first showed the road to autarchy or "National Socialism." Germany followed next. Whether every country must follow this road and in so doing come under the same kind of soul-destroying dictatorship as that of Stalin and Hitler remains to be seen. If democracy must disappear because it is incompatible with the required economic reorganization of society, then we are about to enter a period of history in which the horrors of the barbarian invasions or of the religious wars of the seventeenth century will pale into insignificance.—Yours, etc., J. K. B. August 28, 1936. 15
