Transcript increased in the labor movement it sought to bring the proletarian youth under its control. Where it attained a certain degree of success it devoted its efforts to withdrawing the young workers from the class struggle and to transforming their organizations into mere educational societies. But the reformists found it difficult to control the revolutionary elements of the youth so that even before the war the young socialist organizations—or at least their best elements—were a strong support of the revolutionary left wing of the labor movement. At the outbreak of and during the war a majority of the members of the young proletarian organizations of most of the capitalist countries remained true to the principle of the revolutionary class struggle and unlike the socialist parties who placed themselves beside the bourgeoisie, became constantly clearer in their aims. As the working class had, at that time, no revolutionary parties, the young socialist organizations were forced to break with the policy of the socialist parties and to undertake an independent political struggle against the bourgeoisie, its social democratic accomplices, and the war. Thus they contributed much to the preparation of the ground for new revolutionary parties of the proletariat. With the formation of the Communist International and the Communist Parties and their growing strength, the Young Communist Leagues were able to define their particular role as youth organizations within the general revolutionary movement and to devote themselves to their special tasks among the proletarian youth. Since the working class youth is a part of the working class it does not require any further organization than the Young Communist Leagues for the various activities of the working class, such as political, economic, athletic, and others, as the proletariat as a whole has already organizations for these purposes. The Young Communist League is the mass organization of the working class youth and that part of the labor movement which represents the interests of the young workers in all matters. It is the mass school for the communist education of the working class youth where they can obtain practical education by their organized participation in the struggles of the proletariat. This practical education is supplemented by theoretical teaching. The Leagues are at present the most devoted assistants to the Communist Parties and the reserve force of these for the future. 32 ill
