Transcript munist International. The program of 1919 reflects too much, in its political sections, the political situation at that time. The problem then was parliamentarism, one of the most debated problems in Germany and in other countries. As a result the question of parliamentary activity took too much space in our very concentrated political foreword. The predominance of this problem has not only a formal but also a political importance. This must be corrected, and the political introduction revised. " Another question to which we gave more room is the situation of the working class youth under capitalism. At the Berlin congress our knowledge of the condition of the young workers did not go beyond this, — that we needed this knowledge for our agitation against capitalism, that we knew this condition to be so bad that we were compelled to fight capitalism. Since then, however, we have gained much experience in our concrete economic struggles; in the course of our practical agitation and istruggle we have come to know much better the condition of the young workers. This is why we have given more room to a description of the young workers' condition in our new program. But not only can we describe in detail the life of the young workers, as the Berlin program has not done, but we can attempt a generalisation of the condition of the working class youth as the object of capitalist exploitation. This ip very important. Our practical experience in the process of becoming acquainted with the condition of the young workers has also taught us the difference in the status of the young workers under a capitalist regime or under some other form of isociety. It is self evident that the young workers as the object of exploitation will disappear in socialist society. But their situation was also different in precapitalist societies. For instance, the young worker in the middle ages, the apprentice, lived under quite different circumstance^ than those of the present; the young worker of that day was not a wage slave, but a real apprentice, at school with a master. The relations between master and apprentice were patriarchal more than anything else. "The tasks of the Leagues in the various fields of our activity- have also been amplified. In the Berlin program, our activities on the economic field, against militarism, and on the educational field were only described in general, without details, because we did not pursue those tasks then as extensively as we do now. Since the Berlin congress we have dealt at length with these questions. We II
