Transcript THE HISTORICAL ROOTS OF LENINISM 13 Such, in general, are the principal contradictions of imperialism that have transformed the old, "flourishing" capitalism into moribund capitalism. The significance of the imperialist war that broke loose ten years ago lies, among other things, in the fact that it gathered all these contradictions into a single sheaf and threw them onto the scales, thus accelerating and facilitating the revolutionary battles of the proletariat. In other words, imperialism has not only brought it about that revolution became a practical inevitability; it has also created favourable conditions for a direct attack on the citadels of capitalism. Such is the international situation that gave birth to Leninism. This is all very well, some may say, but how does Russia fit into this picture—Russia, which was not and could not be the classical land of imperialism? In what way is Lenin, who worked above all in Russia and for Russia, concerned with this? Why did Russia of all countries become the home of Leninism, the birthplace of the theory and tactics of the proletarian revolution? Because Russia was the junction point of all these contradictions of imperialism. Because Russia more than any other country was pregnant with revolution and she alone was therefore in a position to solve these contradictions in a revolutionary way. To begin with, tsarist Russia was the home of oppression of every kind—capitalist, colonial and militarist—of oppression in its most inhuman and barbarous form. Who does not know that in Russia the omnipotence of capital was merged with the despotism of tsarism, the aggressive character of Russian nationalism with the rule of the tsarist hangmen over non-Russian peoples, the exploitation of whole regions—Turkey, Persia and China—with the seizure of these regions by tsarism, with wars of conquest?
