Transcript catholic international is adopted almost literally in the program of the second and a half international of youth. " We, on the contrary, have a centralized international organization which dees not recognize the autonomy of the national sections but only recognizes the necessity of adapting the directions of the international to the actual conditions in each individual country. The decisions of the International are our supreme law. " There are also great differences between the organizations of our national sections and those of the socialist youth. The centralization and discipline in the communist Leagues is quite different from that of the social democrats. This corresponds to a difference in principle between the two: our organizations are built on the principle of democratic centralism and strict discipline prevails in the Leagues; while the social democrats, with their loose organizations, are free to do what they will or choose. " Still another difference is that the social democrats cannot expand beyond their district groups. Being merely educational societies they do not find it necessary to organize otherwise than by districts. But we are not educational (societies. Our aim and intention is to become mass organizations, preparing the young workers for the struggle, and hence we organize nuclei in the shops. " In the question of colonial peoples, the social democratic international of youth does not take the colonial peoples into consideration at all. The two socialist internationals of youth are actually and in reality Central European organizations. They have no representation in the large Entente countries or outside of Europe. The more attention they give to the Anglo-Saxon and labor countries the less they give to oriental lands. Their reason is that they share the race prejudices of the adult social democrats towards colonial peoples and are therefore unable to estimate the significance of these. " We support the national revolutionary movements of these countries. We unite the two great movements—the proletarian world revolution and the national revolutionary movement in the colonies, and demand the organization of the colonial youth. We cannot say much more than this in our program, concerning our tasks in the East. We shall attempt in those countries where the proletariat is small to support the youth movement and to lay the foundation for a class movement. 19
