Transcript REMINISCENCES OF LENIN * I of the Congress with regard to him ? " This question had been on the tip of my tongue for a long time. "Paul Levi,'" Lenin answered. "Unfortunately that has become a case in itself. The reason for that lies principally in Paul himself. He has isolated himself from us and run obstinately into a blind alley. You must have become aware of that in your work of propaganda among the delegations. There is no need to try and convince me. You know how highly I value Paul Levi and his capacity. I got to know him in Switzerland and placed great hopes in him. He proved true in the times of worse persecution, was, brave, clever, unselfish. I believed that he was firmly bound to the proletariat, although I was aware of a certain coolness in his attitude to the workers. Something of a "please keep your distance.' Since the appearance of his pamphlet I have had doubts of him. I am afraid that there is a strong inclination towards solitariness and self- sufficiency in him, and something of literary vanity. Ruthless criticism of the ' March action ' was necessary. But what did Paul Levi give ? He tore the Party to pieces. He did not criticise, but was one-sided, exaggerated, even malicious ; he gave nothing to which the Party could usefully turn. He lacks the spirit of solidarity with the Party. And it is that which has made the rank and 51e comrades so angry, and made them deaf and blind to the great deal of truth in Levi's criticism, particularly to his correct political principles. And so a feeling arose—it also extended to non-German comrades—in which the dispute concerning the pamphlet, and concerning Levi himself, became the sole subject of this contention, instead of the false theory and bad practice of the ' offensive theory ' and the ' leftists.' They have to thank Paul Levi that up to the present they have come out so well, much too well. Paul Levi is his own worst enemy." 3i
