Transcript DICTATORSHIP OF THE PROLETARIAT 47 and easy life and whom now the 'common herd' is condemning to ruin and destitution (or to 'common' work). . . . In the wake of the capitalist exploiters will be found the broad masses of the petty bourgeoisie, to whose vacillation and hesitation the historical experience of every country for decades bears witness; one day they march behind the proletariat, the next day they will take fright at the difficulties of the revolution, become panic-stricken at the first defeat or semi-defeat of the workers; they become irritable, they run about, snivel and rush from one camp to the other." (The Proletarian Revolution and Renegade Kautsky.) Now the bourgeoisie has reasons for making attempts at restoration, because for a long time after its overthrow it remains stronger than the proletariat which has overthrown it. If the exploiters—Lenin says—are vanquished in only a single country, which, of course, is the typical case since a simultaneous revolution in a number of countries is a rare exception, they still remain stronger than the exploited. (Ibid.) Wherein lies the strength of the overthrown bourgeoisie? First, "In the strength of international capital, in the strength and durability of the international connections of the bourgeosie." ("Left-Wing" Communism, p. 9.) Secondly, in the fact that "for a long time after the revolution, the exploiters will inevitably retain a number of enormous and real advantages: they will have money left (it is impossible to abolish money all at once), some movable property, often of considerable value; there remain their connections, their organising and administrative ability and the knowledge of all the secrets of administration (of usages, of procedure, of ways and means, of possibilities) ; there remain their superior education, their kinship to the highest ranks of the technical personnel (who live and think like the bourgeosie) ; there remains their immeasurable superiority in the
