Transcript THE MEANING OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION 21 debts, growing armaments, and cruel, stupid wars. More than that, they would be deprived, like the Western nations, of their chief, blessing—their accustomed, beloved, agricultural life, apd would drift into hopeless dependence on foreign labour; and this under the most disadvantageous conditions, carrying on an industrial and commercial struggle with the Western nations, with the certainty of being vanquished. Destruction awaits them on this path and on that. IX. What, then, is the Russian nation to do ? The natural and simple answer, the direct outcome of the facts of the case, is to follow neither this path nor that.

It would be just as strange, or even stranger, if such agricultural peasants, living their peaceful, independent life without any need of a Government, and wishing to be rid of the burdens they endure at the hands of a violent and to them unnecessary power, instead of sjmply ceasing to submit to it, were, by qm-
