Transcript DICTATORSHIP OF THE PROLETARIAT 57 What are the main characteristics of the Soviet power? They are that the Soviet power has a most pronounced mass character and is the most democratic of all state organisations possible while classes continue to exist; for, being the arena of the bond and co-operation of the workers and exploited peasants in their struggle against the exploiters, and basing itself in its work on this bond and co-operation, the Soviet power by this very fact represents the rule of the majority of the population over the minority, it is the state of that majority, the expression of its dictatorship. That the Soviet power is the most international of all state organisations in class society, for, by extirpating every kind of national oppression and basing itself on the cooperation of the toiling masses of the various nationalities it facilitates the amalgamation of these masses into a single union of states. That the Soviet power by its very structure facilitates the leadership of the oppressed and exploited masses by the vanguard of these masses, i.e., the proletariat—the most compact and most class conscious nucleus of the Soviets. "The experience of all revolutions and of all movements of the oppressed classes, the experience of the world socialist movement teaches us," says Lenin, "that only the proletariat is able to unite the scattered, backward strata of the toiling and exploited population and to lead them." (Collected Works, Vol. XXIV, p. 14, Russian edition.) The structure of the Soviet power facilitates the practical application of the lessons to be drawn from this experience. That the Soviet power, by combining the legislative and executive functions in a single state body and replacing territorial electoral divisions by units of production, i.e., factories and workshops, thereby directly connects the workers and the labouring masses in general with the apparatus of state administration and teaches them how to administer the country.
