Transcript THEORY 43 Let us continue. Formerly, the victory of the revolution in a single country was considered impossible, on the assumption that the combined action of the proletarians of all, or at least of a majority, of the advanced countries was necessary in order to achieve victory over the bourgeoisie. This point of view no longer corresponds with reality. Now we must start out from the possibility of such a victory, because the uneven and spasmodic character of the development of the various capitalist countries in the conditions of imperialism, the development of catastrophic contradictions within imperialism, leading inevitably to wars, the growth of the revolutionary movement in all countries of the world— all these lead, not only to the possibility, but also to the necessity of the victory of the proletariat in individual countries.

In this connection it need only be borne in mind that the overthrow of the bourgeoisie can be successfully accomplished only when there are certain indispensable prerequisites, in the absence of which the proletariat cannot even dream of seizing power. This is what Lenin says of these prerequisites in his pamphlet, "Left-Wing" Communism: "The fundamental lawr of revolution, confirmed by all revolutions, and particularly by all three Russian revolutions in the twentieth century, is as follows: It is not sufficient for revolution that the exploited and oppressed masses understand the impossibility of living in the old way and demand changes; for revolution it is necessary that the exploiters should not be able to live and rule in the old way. Only when the 'lower classes' do not want the old, and when the 'upper classes' cannot continue in the old way then only can revolution be victorious. This truth may be expressed in other words :, revolution is__ impossible withjmt-Ji^Jiational crisis affecting both the exploited and the exploiters. [My italics.—J.iS.] It follows that for revolution it is essential
