Transcript What, then, is going on in the U.S.S.R.? Let us turn to the facts and draw the conclusions. I will deal \vitb three features. First, the most important of all is what is going on in the sphere of production. Until quite recently, until the definite turn of the tide in collectivisation, it was only in industry that we had the predominance of the socialist type of production, and the importance of the consistently socialist elements in production and transport growing year by year. In agriculture, however, the socialist elements played an insignificant part. The decisive factor in recent, months is the conversion of the main body of petty peasant farms to large-scale agricultural production of the socialist type, which is bound up with the liquidation of the capitalist elements in the villages. Socialist industry is now being reinforced by agriculture, which is reconstructing itself on socialist lines. In this way the U.S.S.R. takes its stand firmly on the basis of socialist production. Secondly, in the sphere of trade and credit, the dominant position of state and co-operative trading has been firmly established. By the end of this year, even in retail trade, the private sector will represent only one-tenth. The reorganisation of the credit system finishes off, as it were, the adjustment of the economic apparatus with its "super-structures" to the period of reconstruction. Thus, the totality of changes in the economic apparatus, productive, commercial, and credit, gives a clear idea of the difference between the present stage of the New Economic Policy and its first stage. Thirdly comes the question of the state apparatus as a whole. Here the reconstruction is proceeding much more slowly. But the changes now taking place in the productive basis, and also in commerce, particularly in connection with the development of the preliminary conditions for establishing planned exchange between town and country, are bound to reflect themselves in the whole machinery of the state. The motive force in the reconstruction of the state machinery is the participation of the mass of workers in the administration of the state. Through various channels the masses are to-day being drawn more and more into this work. Substantial achievements in the improvement of state administration as a whole are bound up with successes of the cultural revolution, the genuine beginnings of which are the rapidly increasing cultural requirements of the mass of workers and peasants. The features I have enumerated which characterise the processes now at work in the U.S.S.R. make it possible to come to a general conclusion. The conclusion is that in the Soviet Union to-day are being laid the foundations of socialist society. We have set about
