Transcript FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM I. THE HISTORICAL ROOTS OF LENINISM Leninism grew up and assumed definite form under the conditions of imperialism, at the time when the contradictions of capitalism had reached a most acute stage, when the proletarian revolution had become an immediate practical question, when the old period of preparation of the working class for the revolution had reached and grown into a new period of direct onslaught against capitalism. Lenin used to call imperialism "moribund capitalism." Why? Because imperialism carries the contradictions of capitalism to their last bounds, to the extreme limits, beyond which revolution begins. Of these contradictions, three are the most important. The first contradiction is the antagonism between labour and capital. Imperialism denotes the omnipotence of the monopolist trusts and syndicates, of the banks and of the financial oligarchy in the industrial countries. In the fight against this omnipotence, the customary methods of the working class—trade unions and co-operative organisations, parliamentary parties and parliamentary struggle—proved quite inadequate. Either place yourself at the mercy of capital, linger in misery as of old and sink lower and lower, or adopt a new weapon—this is the alternative imperialism puts before the vast masses of the proletariat. Imperialism brings the working class to revolution. The second contradiction is the antagonism between the various financial groups and the imperialist powers in their struggle for sources of raw materials, for foreign territory. 11
