Transcript 1 I I The young workers of the city and of the country are the first victims of militarism: they are the masses who are called upon to fill the ranks of its armies and to die on the battle fields. From their earliest youth militarism seeks to poison their minds and by ideological and organizational measures to bring them f under its influence. It is therefore the primary task of the Young Communist Leagues to combat militarism relentlessly and to conduct an energetic anti-militarist propaganda among the masses of the young workers both inside and outside the army. During the period of the world revolution bourgeois militarism fights more and more openly against the working class and becomes the instrument of white terror. Thus during this period the Young Communist Leagues and the Communist Parties should take even stronger and more radical action against militarism. To the chauvinism of the imperialists, the petty bourgeois pacifists and the social democrats oppose their petty bourgeois pacifism. Pacifism, as such, is a hopeless Utopia. The bourgeoisie, fighting for the division of the world and trembling before the proletarian revolution, will never lay down their weapons until the workers have disarmed them. But what is worse, pacifism harms the proletariat. It does not alarm or disarm the bourgeoisie but it robs the proletariat of its weapons by illusions which surrender the fostering proletariat psychologically and physically helpless, into the hands of its armed class enemy. No less harmful to the working class are the methods of anti- mil itanst struggle advocated by the anarcho-syndicalist elements; £SU! ?
