Solemn proclamations regarding "equal rights of nationalities" and innumerable declarations about the "equality of nations" were the staff of life of the parties of the Second International, which gloss over the fact that "equality of nations" under imperialism, while one group of nations (a minority) lives by exploiting another group of nations, is sheer mockery of the oppressed nations. We can consider this bourgeois juridical point of view on the national question as having been exposed. Leninism brought the national question down from the lofty heights of high-sounding declarations to solid ground and declared that pronouncements about the "equality of nations" which are not reinforced by the direct support of the proletarian parties to the liberation struggle of the oppressed nations are meaningless and false. In this way the question of the oppressed nations became a question of rendering support and assistance, real and continuous, to the oppressed nations in their struggle against imperialism, their struggle for real equality of nations and for their independent existence as states. Formerly, the national question was regarded from the reformist point of view; it was regarded as an independent question entirely separated from the general question of capitalist rule, of the overthrow of imperialism and the proletarian revolution. It was tacitly understood that the victory of the proletariat in Europe wras possible without a close alliance with the liberation movement in the colonies, that the national colonial question could be solved quietly, "automatically," off the beaten track of the proletarian revolution, entirely separate from the revolutionary struggle with imperialism. To-day we can say that this anti-revolutionary outlook has been exposed. Leninism has proved, and the imperialist war and the revolution in Russia have confirmed it, that the national question can be solved only in connection
