Transcript 62 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM was decided by the period of the Dumas, for the period of the four Dumas served as an object lesson for the peasantry, and this lesson brought home to them the fact that they would never receive land or liberty at the hands of the Cadets, that the tsar was wholeheartedly on the side of the landlords and that the Cadets were supporting the tsar; that the only force on which they could count was the city workers, the proletariat. The imperialist war merely confirmed the lessons of the Duma period by completing the desertion of the peasantry from the bourgeoisie and by completing the isolation of the liberal bourgeoisie. For the years of the war brought out the utter futility and the absolute frustration of all hopes of obtaining peace from the tsar and from his bourgeois allies. Without these object lessons of the Duma period, the hegemony of the proletariat would have been impossible. In this way the alliance of the workers and peasants during the bourgeois-democratic revolution took shape; in this way the hegemony (leadership) of the proletariat arose in the common struggle for the overthrow of tsarism, the hegemony which led to the February Revolution of 1917. We know that the bourgeois revolutions of the West (England, France, Germany and Austria) proceeded along a different road. There the hegemony during the revolution belonged not to the proletariat, which did not, and by reason of its weakness could not, represent an independent political factor, but to the liberal bourgeoisie. Emancipation from serfdom was bestowed upon the peasantry not by the hands of the proletariat, which was numerically weak and unorganised, but by the hands of the bourgeoisie. The peasantry marched against the old regime side by side with the liberal bourgeoisie. The peasantry acted as the reserve of the bourgeoisie. In view of this, the revolution in those countries resulted in a tremendous increase in the political influence of the bourgeoisie.
