Transcript REMINISCENCES OF LENIN of the affair, was and is quite another matter. It was and is a 'putsch '-ist fall from grace and no theoretical, historical, or political soap will wash away the reality of that fact." "Of course the defensive action of militant workers and the attack of the not well-advised Party, or rather of its leadership, will be diversely criticised," Lenin said quickly and decisively, "You opponents of the ' March action ' are yourselves to blame for not having done that. You only saw the distorted policy of the Centre and its bad effects, and not the militant workers of Central Germany. Moreover, Paul Levi's entirely negative criticism, which lacked that ' feeling of oneness ' with the Party, and embittered the comrades rather more by its tone than by its content, diverted attention from most important aspects of the problem. As far as the probable attitude of the Congress to the ' March action ' is concerned, you must realise that it is essential to have a basis for compromise. Don't look at me with such amazement, and reproach ; you and your friends will have to swallow a compromise. You will have to be content with the lion's share of the Congress spoils. The principles of your policy will triumph, triumph brilliantly. And that will prevent a repetition of the 1 March action.' The decisions of the Congress must be strictly carried out. The Executive will see to that. I have no doubts on the matter. "The Congress will utterly destroy the famous ' theory of the offensive,' will adopt the tactics which correspond to your ideas. But for that very reason it must also distribute some crumbs of consolation to the adherents of that theory. If, in criticising the ' March action ' we emphasise the fact that the workers fought under provocation from the lackeys of the bourgeoisie, and if, in general, we show a somewhat fatherly' historical' leniency, that will be possible. You, Klara, will condemn that as hushing it up and so on. 27
