Transcript In a revolutionary epoch one must employ primarily the means of revolutionary struggle of the masses (demonstrations, strikes, general strikes, armed uprisings). At the same time the proletariat cannot reject in.principle other political resources, such as parliaments. The entry into parliament depends upon the political situation of the moment, and must be decided in each case seperately by the organizations of each country. (2) If the position of the adult workers under the rule of capitalism is exceptionally hard, the position of the working youth is quite intolerable. Low wages, a long working day, barbarous treatment from the employer and immediate superiors characterize the position of the young workers. Conditions are even worse in those trades where the apprentices are wholly within the power of their trade masters. Such an unlimited exploitation of young workers hinders their intellectual and physical development. The bourgeois governments allow the working class youth only so much education as is necessary for them to possess in the capacity of industrious and useful cattle. The bourgeoisie strive to imbue the youth with their own ideology. School, confessional and bourgeois young people's organizations, as well as militarism, have but one object - to alienate the proletarian youth from the struggle for Socialism and to make of them devoted soldiers for capitalism. The world war aggravated this situation considerably. Millions of young proletarians were sent to the front to serve as cannon dodder; millions AUhoIT.h1'^/nt0 the ammunition P^nts. the voiW+h?e ♦ fe* and th£ empl0*ers *xnaust the strength ° hem onfv on I w^ P°litical and P™al rights are permitted ftTwtw dZy m°^S; SCale- Such a stat* of affairs has incited imperiahsm Y° * t0 take UP a ™™less struggle against youth'is dIt/Sl3'1 (a^°Th?arav or^izati°ns of the proletarian production ancTin sod"tv ll ^ °f Ule ^ ta the "^ fense of their own Tntet*>l T™ f°rCCS them t0 fight "£ ming the school system ^' ""^^rganization of labor; ttg of youth (the prevalent ,{) The Penological characteristics cooperation, greaf eceSv , SCntlment °Ver rcason' aptitUdC r ideas, readiness fwSS?
