Transcript 70 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM facilitates the organisation of economic co-operation between the working class and the peasantry of Russia? The sceptics maintain that the small peasantry is a factor incompatible with socialist construction. But listen to what Engels has to say about the small peasantry of the West: "And indeed we stand decidedly on the side of the small peasant; we will do everything in any way admissible to make his lot more bearable, to facilitate his transition to the co-operative, if he decides to take this step, and even, if he cannot as yet bring himself to this decision, to give him plenty of time to ponder over it on his holding. We do this not only because we regard the small peasant who does his own work as virtually belonging to us, but also in the direct interest of the Party. The greater the number of peasants whom we can save from actual downfall into the proletariat and win for ourselves while they are still peasants, the more rapidly and easily will the social transformation take place. It cannot be to our advantage if we had to wait with this transformation until capitalist production has developed everywhere up to its final consequences, until the last petty artisan and the last peasant has fallen a victim to capitalist large-scale production. The material sacrifices which will have to be made out of public funds in this direction in the interests of the peasants can only appear as money thrown away from the point of view of capitalist economy, but they are nevertheless an excellent investment for they will save perhaps ten times the amount in the costs of social organisation in general. In this sense, therefore, we can afford to deal very liberally with the peasants." (F. Engels, The Peasant Question in France and Germany.) This is what Engels said, having the Western peasantry in mind. Is it not clear that nowhere can what Engels said be realised so easily and so completely as in the land of the dictatorship of the proletariat? Is it not obvious that only
