Transcript 24 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM beginning of the war, the Basle resolution was pigeonholed and the workers were supplied with a new watchword—the extermination of each other for the greater glory of the capitalist fatherland? Is it not clear that revolutionary watchwords and resolutions are not worth a farthing if they are not supported by deeds? It suffices to contrast the Leninist policy of transforming the imperialist war into civil war with the treacherous policy of the Second International during the war to understand the absolute banality of the opportunist politicians and the full grandeur of the method of Leninism. I cannot refrain from quoting at this point a passage from The Proletarian Revolution and Renegade Kautsky, in which Lenin severely lashes the opportunist attempts of Kautsky, a leader of the Second International, to judge parties not by their deeds but by their paper slogans and their documents: "Kautsky follows a typical petty-bourgeois, philistine policy; he imagines . . . that putting forward a slogan alters matters. The whole history of bourgeois democracy exposes this illusion; to deceive the people, the bourgeois democrats have always advanced and will continue to advance all sorts of 'slogans.' The point is to test their sincerity, to compare their actions with their words, not to be content with idealistic or quack phrases but to dig down to class reality." (The Proletarian Revolution and Renegade Kautsky, Little Lenin Library, Vol. 21.) I refrain from speaking of the fear of self-criticism which exists within the parties of the Second International; of their habit of hiding their mistakes, of glossing over thorny problems, of covering up their shortcomings by falsely pretending that all is well, which blunts living thought and hinders the revolutionary training of the Party by learning from mistakes—that habit which was ridiculed and pilloried by Lenin. This is what Lenin wrote about self-criticism in
