Transcript tatorship from unexpected attacks by the bourgeoisie, to have recourse to arms and to fight against bourgeois militarism. For the arming of the proletariat! For the Red Army! That is the cry of the communist youth. (7) The struggle for the amelioration of the economic situation of the proletarian youth is one of the principal problems of the Leagues. A practical reform of the conditions of labor is possible only in a communist community. In the present period of capitalist domination it is possible to attain a partial amelioration of the situation of the young only through the revolutionary class struggle, but in no wise by collaborating with the compromisers and the bourgeois governments. (8) One of the elementary problems of the Young Communist Leagues is the training of proletarian leaders and future builders of the communist society. Communist judgement and readiness for action are attained not only by taking part in the political struggle, but also through theoretical socialist instruction which is a sharp weapon in the fight against bourgeois ideology. Socialist education combined with active participation in the political struggles — these are the true methods of training young proletarian champions. (9) The Young Communist Leagues, moreover, set themselves the task of a universal education of the working class youth in the Marxian spirit, thereby raising their cultural level. The working class youth must extort from the bourgeoisie the treasures of knowledge which are indispensable to the workers as a guide in the movement for the emancipation of the proletariat. They must conquer the paths to science, literature, and art. Besides honest workmen and brave soldiers of the Red Army, the working class youth must supply scholars technical experts, organizers, philosophers, poets, and artists for the new communist society. It is the mission of the proletarian youth and its organizations to be in the front ranks of the constructors of a new culture conceived in the spirit of communism. r <10) The communist organizations must turn the proletarian youth into a healthy people - healthy bodily and mentally. Therefore, the Young Communist Leagues are also concerned with the physica development of the young. This work, to which we can give only a part of our activity at the present time, is also of great importance for the young workers. 24
