Transcript REMINISCENCES OF LENIN But that won't help you. If the tactics to be decided upon by the Congress are agreed upon as quickly as possible, and with no great friction, becoming the guiding principle for the activity of the Communist Parties, our dear leftists will go back not too mortified and not too embittered. We must also—and indeed first and before all—consider the feelings of the real revolutionary workers both within and outside the Party. You once wrote to me that we Russians should learn to understand western psychology a little and not thrust our hard, rugged methods upon people all at once. I took notice of that." Lenin smiled contentedly. "Well, we shan't deal roughly with the leftists, we shall put some balm on their wounds instead.

"The basis of the tactics to be followed was clearly stated in the resolution which you placed before the Central Committee. The resolution was not in the least negative, like Paul Levi's pamphlet, its criticism was positive throughout. How could it have been rejected, and after what discussion and on what grounds ? And what an unpolitical attitude ! Instead of using the difference between positive and negative to separate you from Levi, you were forced on to his side." I interrupted him : "Perhaps, dear Comrade Lenin, you think that you must give me, too, a few crumbs of consolation, because I've got to swallow the compromise. I can do it without consolation or balm." "No," Lenin parried, "I don't mean it so. And to prove that, I am going to give you a well-deserved thrashing. 28
