Transcript 54 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM wrorld, in the sense of the absence of militarism and bureaucracy, have today plunged headlong into the all-European dirty, bloody morass of military bureaucratic institutions to which everything is subordinated and which trample everything underfoot. Today, both in England and in America, 'essential for every real people's revolution' is the break-up, the shattering of the 'ready-made' state machinery (brought in those countries, between 1914 and 1917, to general 'European' imperialist perfection)."
