Transcript THE NATIONAL QUESTION 79 tirely out of the question. The question of the rights of nations is not an isolated question, complete in itself; it is a part of the general question of the proletarian revolution, a part which is subordinate to the whole and must be dealt with from the point of view of the whole question. In the forties of the last century, Marx supported the national movement of the Poles and the Hungarians and was opposed to the national movement of the Czechs and the Jugo-Slavs. Why? Because the Czechs and the Jugo-Slavs were then "reactionary nations," "Russian outposts" in Europe, outposts of absolutism; whereas the Poles and the Hungarians were "revolutionary nations," fighting against absolutism; because support of the national movement of the Czechs and Jugo-Slavs at that time would have been equivalent to giving indirect support to tsarism, the most dangerous enemy of the revolutionary movement in Europe. "The various demands of democracy," writes Lenin, "including self-determination, are not an absolute, they are particles of the general democratic (at present socialist) world movement. In individual concrete cases, a particle may contradict the whole; if it does, then it must be rejected." (Collected Works, Vol. XIX.) That, then, is the position in regard to the question of certain national movements, of the possibly reactionary character of these movements, that is, of course, if they are examined concretely, from the point of view of the interests of the revolutionary movement and not from the formal point of view, from the point of view of abstract rights. The same must be said of the revolutionary character of national movements in general. The unquestionably revolutionary character of the overwhelming majority of national movements is as relative and peculiar as the possibly reactionary character of certain national movements. The revolutionary character of a national movement in the condi-
