Transcript THE HISTORICAL ROOTS OF LENINISM 17 The same—only to a still greater degree—must be said of Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century. Russia at that time was on the eve of the bourgeois revolution; she had to accomplish this revolution under more advanced conditions in Europe, and with a more developed proletariat than Germany had, not to mention England and France. Every indication pointed to the fact that this revolution would serve as a ferment and act as a prelude to the proletarian revolution. It was not a mere coincidence that Lenin as early as 1902, when the Russian revolution was still in an inchoate state, wrote the following prophetic words in his pamphlet What Is to Be Done?: "History has now confronted us (i.e., the Russian Marxists—J. S.) with an immediate task which is more revolutionary than all the immediate tasks that confront the proletariat of any other country. The fulfilment of this task, the destruction of the most powerful bulwark, not only of European, but also (it may now be said) of Asiatic reaction, places the Russian proletariat in the vanguard of the international revolutionary proletariat." (Collected Works, Vol. IV, Book II, p. 112; also Little Lenin Library, Vol. 4, p. 30.) * In other words, the centre of the revolutionary movement was to be transferred to Russia. The course of the revolution has, as we know, more than vindicated Lenin's prediction. Is it surprising after all this that a country which has accomplished such a revolution and possesses such a proletariat should be the fatherland of the theory and tactics of the proletarian revolution? Is it surprising that Lenin, the leader of this proletariat, should also become the creator of this theory and of these tactics and the leader of the international proletariat? * Unless otherwise stated, references are given to available English translations.—Ed.
