Transcript THE HISTORICAL ROOTS OF LENINISM 15 his intention really was not only to smash tsarism but to extirpate it without leaving a trace. Thus the revolution against tsarism approximated to and had to grow into a revolution against imperialism, into a proletarian revolution. Meanwhile, in Russia, a popular revolution was rising, a revolution headed by the most revolutionary proletariat in the world, which could count upon the revolutionary peasantry of Russia as its sturdy ally. It is self-evident that such a revolution could not come to a halt midway; that in case of success it was bound to advance further and raise the banner of revolt against imperialism. It is for this reason that Russia had to become the junction point of the contradictions of imperialism not only in the sense that these contradictions were exposed more easily in Russia than elsewhere in view of their especially repulsive and intolerable character, and not only because Russia was the most important bulwark of Western imperialism, uniting as it did Western finance capital with the Eastern colonies, but also because only in Russia did the real power exist capable of solving the contradictions of imperialism in a revolutionary way. From this it follows that in Russia the revolution could not but become a proletarian revolution, that it could not but assume an international character from the very first days of its development and that, therefore, it could not but shake the very foundations of world imperialism. Under such circumstances, could the Russian Communists have confined their operations within the narrow national limits of the Russian revolution? Certainly not! On the contrary, the whole situation, internal (profound revolutionary crisis) and external (war) pushed them beyond these confines in their work, compelled them to transfer their struggles to the international arena, expose the ulcers of imperialism to full view, demonstrate the inevitable collapse of capitalism, defeat social-chauvinism and social-
