Transcript generalize from it on an international scale, and adopt the conclusions in our program. Our program must contain only such matter as may really be viewed as international phenomena. The experiences of the Young Communist League of Russia are too inseparably bound up with the concrete conditions in Russia to allow us to generalize upon them and take them up in our program. At the meeting of the program commission I have already given an example of why it is so difficult to generalize on the Russian experience. Russia began with the old economic policy and passed over to the new. At the congress of the Comintern, it was stated that the western countries should begin at once with the new economic policy. Of course, this makes a great difference. When you consider the influence of the new economic policy on the condition of the working class youth in Russia, you will realize that this different development in the various countries will create a different situation in the condition of the young workers, and, as a result, quite different tasks for the Leagues. I need not go into any more details in this question, but I would like to say, that the emphasis of our program can be laid upon a practical plan for the activity and the struggle of the Young Communist Leagues only for the period before the conquest of power. For the period after the conquest of power, we must limit ourselves to a statement of possibilities, since we cannot lay down any well detailed, concrete practical plan and theoretical conclusions for that period. "The next question in the formation of our program is the political foreword. Our program begins with a political foreword, which describes the nature of capitalism and its development into a world revolution. A few comrades are of the opinion that it might be better not to give the first place to this political introduction, since most young workers do not understand it, or even if they do, they find it rather uninteresting; that it might be better to begin with the situation of the young worker, which is of greater interest to the working class youth, and then go on to the general political situation. I am of the opposite opinion, because it is selfevident that the condition of the young worker arises from the general situation of capital and the working class, and not vice versa. If we wish to build up our program logically and not arbitrarily, to express the natural development of conditions, we must begin with the general situation, and then pass over to details. This is why I propose that the present order should be retained.
