Transcript THEORY 31 of workers were sent to their death. But is anybody guilty? Did anybody betray the working class? Oh, no! Everything was as it should have been. In the first place, the International is an "instrument of peace," and not of war. Besides, in view of the "level of the productive forces" which then prevailed, it was impossible to do anything else. And so the "blame" is thrown on the "productive forces." This is precisely the explanation vouchsafed "us" by Mr. Kaut- sky's "productive forces theory." Whoever does not believe in this "theory" is not a Marxist. The role of the parties? Their part in the movement? But what could a party do against so decisive a factor as the "level of the productive forces"? A host of similar examples of such falsification of Marxism could be quoted. It is hardly necessary to prove that this spurious Marxism, which is intended to hide the nakedness of opportunism, is only a European adaptation of that theory of "tailism" which Lenin fought even before the first Russian revolution. It is hardly necessary to prove that the elimination of this theoretical falsification is a prerequisite for the creation of truly revolutionary parties in the West. (3) The Theory of the Proletarian Revolution The Leninist theory of the proletarian revolution is based on three fundamental theses. First Thesis: The domination of finance capital in the advanced capitalist countries, the issue of stocks and bonds as the principal operation of finance capital; the export of capital to the sources of raw materials, which is one of the bases of imperialism; the omnipotence of a financial oligarchy, a consequence of the domination of finance capital—all these reveal the crudely parasitic character of monopolist capitalism, make the yoke of the capitalist trusts and syndicates a hundred times more burdensome, increase
