Transcript 16 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM pacifism, and finally overthrow capitalism in their own country and forge a new weapon of struggle for the proletariat, the theory and tactics of the proletarian revolution, in order to lighten for the proletariat of all countries the task of overthrowing capitalism. The Russian Communists could not act otherwise, for this was the only path along which such changes in the international situation as would ensure Russia against the restoration of the bourgeois order could be expected. That is why Russia became the home of Leninism; and that is why Lenin, the leader of the Russian Communists, became its creator. The same thing more or less "happened" with Russia and Lenin as happened with Germany and Marx and Engels in the forties of the last century. Like Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century, Germany was then pregnant with the bourgeois revolution. In The Communist Manifesto, Marx wrote: "The Communists turn their attention chiefly to Germany, because that country is on the eve of a bourgeois revolution that is bound to be carried out under more advanced conditions of European civilisation and with a much more developed proletariat than what existed in England in the seventeenth and in France in the eighteenth century, and because the bourgeois revolution in Germany will be but the prelude to an immediately following proletarian revolution." (Manifesto of the Communist Parti/ [International Publishers], p. 44.) In other words, the centre of the revolutionary movement Mas being transferred to Germany. There can hardly be any doubt but that this circumstance, noted by Marx in the above-quoted passage, explains the fact that Germany came to be the fatherland of scientific socialism and that the leaders of the German proletariat, Marx and Engels, were its creators.
