Transcript —whose characteristic features are the formation of trusts, syndicates, and cartels, and the domination of finance capital. To find new markets for its products and fresh sources of raw material, to open new investment possibilities for its capital, the imperialist bourgeoisie subjugated most of the industrially backward and undeveloped nations outside of Europe and took possession of those countries, at the same time bringing others under its disguised rule. Through their governments the various national capitalist cliques fight each other bitterly for the division and domination of the world, for colonies, for European markets, and for sources of raw materials and fuel. This economic war leads inevitably to armed conflicts, to imperialist wars. The imperialist world war of 1914-1918 cost more than ten millions of dead and maimed; it disrupted finance, industry, and transportation everywhere; it brought hunger and misery to the workers. Capitalism cannot repair the fatal consequences of that war. Its various attempts at economic reconstruction have been in vain; the disruption of its economic basis proceeds without interruption and capitalism is faced with complete collapse. The political differences between the nations have not been removed but have been made more acute by the peace treaties. Due to a widespread, bitter, and constantly increasing class antagonism all the attempts to reconstruct capitalist economy and establish a social balance lead to nothing. Capitalism has brought humanity into a blind alley and the only way out is—the world revolution. The emancipation of mankind from the yoke of capitalism has become the immediate task of the international proletariat. The proletariat must overthrow the bourgeoisie, erect the proletarian dictatorship and the Soviet system, take from the capitalists the land, the banks, the industries, and the means of transportation, and proceed in this manner until the complete abolition of private property and classes has been attained; until the final establishment of a communist economic system and a communist society. The essential economic conditions for the world revolution are present. Its success depends upon the will, the strength, and the fighting power of the proletariat. The proletarian revolution can be successful only if the working class definitely frees itself from reformist illusions; breaks away from the Second International—the lackey of the bourgeoisie —and places itself under the leadership of the Communist Parties and the Third International, the revolu- 27
