Transcript THE PROGRAM of the YOUNG COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL (as adopted at the Berlin Congress ot the Y. C. I., November 1919) THE unheard-of development of capitalist accumulation and production has brought capitalism to a new stage in its development — to the phase of imperialism, which is characterized by the formation of trusts and syndicates, and by the rule of finance capital. Its colonial policy, caused by the necessity for finding new markets for trade and procuring raw material, the competition of the national capitalist cliques, led with iron necessity to imperialist wars. The war of 1914-18, the consequences of which cannot be liquidated by the resources of capitalist society, has disturbed and destroyed most of the capitalist countries. The terrifying calamities of war, famine, financial and commercial bankruptcy, and the destruction of human lives, have brought humanity to a crisis from whicn there is but one way out — World Wide Social Revolution. The material conditions necessary for this are here. The class antagonisms have become extremely acute. The victory of the Revolution depends entirely upon the will and the energy of the international proletariat. The way to Socialism leads through the dictatorship of the proletariat, which is characterized by a government of the revolutionary Soviets. The first task of the working class is the struggle for the overthrow of the political, economic, and intellectual domination of imperialism, and to establish a proletarian dictatorship. This struggle can come to a victorious end only when the proletariat decisively breaks away from the Second International, which is reformist to the core and compromises with bourgeois society, betraying thereby the whole working class. Only then will the working masses unite under the standard of the Communist International — the leader of the proletariat in the revolutionary struggle. 21
