Transcript 76 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM past. Leninism laid bare this shocking incongruity, tore down the wall between whites and blacks, between Europeans and Asiatics, between the "cultured" and "uncultured" slaves of imperialism and thus linked the national question with the question of the colonies. By this the national question was transformed from a specific question, affecting the internal policies of a particular state, into a general and international question, into a world question of the emancipation of the oppressed people in the dependencies and colonies from the yoke of imperialism. Formerly, the principle of self-determination of nations was wrongly interpreted, and not infrequently it was narrowed dowrn to the right of nations to autonomy. Certain leaders of the Second International went so far as to convert the right of self-determination into the right to cultural autonomy, i.e., the right of oppressed nations to have their owTn cultural institutions while the dominant nation retains all political power in its own hands. The result was that the idea of self-determination was in danger of becoming a means for justifying annexations rather than a means of fighting against annexations. Now we can say that this confusion has been cleared up. Leninism has broadened the conception of self-determination and interprets it as the right of the oppressed peoples in dependent countries and colonies to complete separation, as the right of nations to independent state existence. This has precluded the possibility of justifying annexations on the grounds that the right of self-determination merely means the right to auton- onry. The very principle of self-determination was thus changed from a means to deceive the masses that it undoubtedly was in the hands of the social-chauvinists during the imperialist war, into an instrument for exposing all imperialist aspirations or chauvinist machinations, a means for the political education of the masses in the spirit of internationalism.
