Transcript t first and highest place. I think we are all agreed, comrades, that knowledge can be acquired only through struggle—through collecting and assimilating the experiences obtained through our struggle and using them as the basis of our theoretical education. We must discuss here the relation of general education to political education. The socialist youth either rejects political education or gives it a secondary place as compared with general education, while with us the situation is reversed and political education takes first place. We oppose the too wide spreading of general educational work and its separation from the class struggle. At the same time we do not accept the other extreme, as represented by some of our comrades at the Baden Congress, who interpreted the slogan to mean the rejection of all general educational work. We must use general education but only in so far as it serves the purposes of our political activity and our communist education. For example, the use of singing. There are songs and songs, and some of them we can use in our organizations—revolutionary songs, political-satirical songs, battle songs, etc. Literature is also a province of education, and there are a great many revolutionary novels and poems we can use in the study of the Revolution with the youth. We have already written about this matter in the International of Youth. But an attempt to teach young workers the whole history of literature would be outside our province. "The aim and criterion of our educational work is the struggle against the bourgeois ideology. In this respect I believe that our obligations are greater than even those of the Party. For instance we must fight against religion; against the teaching that the world ZTencTlo^ therfht 3nd P°Wer °f a God> we ™st use natural « b vond Z nL rUC °rFn- Here a*aain » is ""necessary to go beyond the needs of our struggle. ture" H^also'wplfi11 T P™fam is the organizational ptruc- TenrisivoutTZli^ T'Ti Sedi0ns- You a11 know that the ™«ly^smZrnSmen "ram T^^ f^f geois nationalism and proves Tl ? \ reflectl0n of bOUI" internationalism.
