Transcript 12 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM Imperialism is the export of capital to the sources of raw materials, the frantic struggle for exclusive monopoly of these sources, the struggle for redivision of the world that has already been divided, a struggle conducted with particular fury by new financial groups and powers seeking a "place in the sun" against the old ones which tightly cling to their prey. This frantic struggle between various groups of capitalists is remarkable in that an inevitable element of it is imperialist war, war for the annexation of foreign territory. This fact in its turn is remarkable in that it leads to the weakening of the imperialists by one another, to the weakening of the position of capitalism in general; it accelerates the advent of the proletarian revolution and makes this revolution a practical necessity. The third contradiction is the antagonism between the handful of ruling, "civilised" nations and the hundreds of millions of colonial and dependent peoples of the world. Imperialism means the most shameless exploitation and the most inhuman oppression of hundreds of millions of the population of vast colonies and dependent countries. The purpose of this exploitation and oppression is to squeeze out super-profits. But in exploiting these countries imperialism is compelled to construct railways, factories and workshops there, and to create industrial and commercial centres. The appearance of a class of proletarians, the rise of a native intelligentsia, the awakening of national consciousness, the strengthening of the liberation movement —are all the inevitable results of this "policy." The strengthening of the revolutionary movement in all colonies and dependent countries without exception manifestly testifies to this fact. This circumstance is of importance to the proletariat in that it radically undermines the position of capitalism by transforming the colonies and dependent countries from reserves of imperialism into reserves of the proletarian revolution.
