Transcript the proletariat's leading the peasant masses is the ability to reckon with the special conditions of their existence, which implies the proper recognition of the force of habit and the backwardness of the toiling masses in the country. The task of leadership is not only to determine the proper objective, but to be able to find the cornet way to attain it. In present conditions this means rallying the poor peasants and the agricultural labourers around the Party as a nucleus and at the same time strengthening the alliance with the middle peasant in order to carry out the policy of liquidating the kulaks. Not to drag at the tail of the masses, but not to run ahead of them—this is the proper combination of means and end in the struggle to build socialism. Without stubborn and patient work in consolidating our successes in collectivisation, without resolute and systematic struggle against any scramble for purely showy rates of development, and against other forms of "Left" gymnastics, we shall not make our achievements stable and shall not be able to ensure our further progress.

The emphasis in the struggle has, however, to be laid according to the peculiarities of the moment. , IV.—Conclusions. To sum up, What is going on in the U.S.S.R.? I will reply to this question first in the words of politicians in the bourgeois camp. I will begin by quoting the opinion of Lloyd George, according to the "Neue Freie Presse" of December 28th, 1929. "Bolshevism has not perished, and, it would seem, stands stronger on its feet than ever before. The future of bolshevism depends to a great degree on the success or failure of the Five Years' Plan. The main idea of the Five Years' Plan is as courageous as it is wise. In carrying out the Five Years' Plan, bolshevism is ruthlessly consistent. The bolshevik dictatorship is making heroic efforts to reorganise agriculture and industry. With the limited resources at its disposal, the Soviet Union is purchasing abroad the most up-to-date machines. If the Five Years' Plan succeeds, the Soviet Union will become an extremely important factor in the sphere of transport, commerce and finance." In the last phrase, of course, Lloyd George attempted to narrow down the importance of our successes. We have no reason to be surprised at this. Here is what Vandervelde, one of the leaders of the Second International, writes about the U.S.S.R. : "One cannot shake off the impression that gigantic efforts are being made there, that these efforts have led at all events to a 47
