Transcript REMINISCENCES OF LENIN I had to admit the truth of the last remark, but I hotly contested Lenin's other remarks. "Paul Levi is not a vain, complacent literateur," I said.

He wrote his pamphlet in the spirit of the legendary Roman, who willingly threw himself into the yawning abyss to save the Fatherland by the sacrifice of his life. Paul Levi's intentions were the purest, the most unselfish." "I won't argue with you about that," Lenin replied. "You are a better advocate for Levi than he is for himself. But you surely know that in politics we are not concerned with intentions, but with effects. Haven't you a saying which runs ' the road to hell is paved with good intentions ' ? The Congress will condemn Paul Levi, will be hard on him. That is unavoidable. But his condemnation will be only on account of breach of discipline, not of his basic political principles. How could that be possible at the very moment when those principles will be recognised as correct ? The way is open for Paul Levi to find his way back to us, if he j •Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht and Leo Jogisches. < 32
