A peasantry that has been schooled in three revolutions, that has fought against the tsar and the power of the bourgeoisie side by side with the proletariat, under the leadership of the proletariat, a peasantry that received land and peace at the hands of the proletarian revolution and by reason of this became the reserve of the proletariat—such a peasantry must necessarily be different from a peasantry which during the bourgeois revolution fought under the leadership of the liberal bourgeoisie, which received land at the hands of that bourgeoisie and in view of this became the reserve of the bourgeoisie. It hardly requires proof that the Soviet peasantry, which is accustomed to appreciate political friendship and political collaboration with the proletariat and which obtained its freedom because of that friendship and collaboration cannot but serve as exceptionally favourable material for economic collaboration with the proletariat. Engels said that "the conquest of political power by the Socialist Party has become a question of the near future," that "in order to capture power the Party must first go from the city into the country and become strong in the countryside." (Engels, The Peasant Question.) He wrote this in the nineties of the last century, having the Western peasantry in mind.
