Transcript THE NATIONAL QUESTION 85 great oppressing nations and in small oppressed nations, in annexing nations and in annexed nations? "Obviously not. The way to the one goal: to complete equality, to the most intimate friendship and to the subsequent amalgamation of all nations, obviously proceeds by different roads in each concrete case—in the same way, let us say, as the direction to a point in the middle of this page is towards the left from one side, and towards the right from the other. If a Socialist, belonging to a great, oppressing, annexing nation, in advocating the amalgamation of nations in general, were to forget even for one moment that 'his' Nicholas II, 'his' Wilhelm, George, Poincare, etc., also stands for amalgamation with the small nations (by means of annexations)—Nicholas II being for 'amalgamation' with Galicia, Wilhelm II for 'amalgamation' with Belgium, etc.— such a Socialist would prove to be a ridiculous doctrinaire in theory and an abettor of imperialism in practice. "The weight of emphasis in internationalist education for the workers in the oppressing countries must necessarily be concentrated upon preaching and getting them to demand the right of secession for the oppressed countries. Without this there is no internationalism. It is our right and duty to condemn every Socialist of an oppressing nation who fails to conduct such propaganda, as an imperialist and a scoundrel. This is an absolute demand, even if the chance of secession being possible and 'feasible' before the introduction of socialism is only one in a thousand. . . . "On the other hand, a Socialist belonging to a small nation must concentrate the weight of his agitation on the second word of our general formula: 'voluntary amalgamation' of nations. Without violating his duties as an internationalist he may be in favour of either the political independence of his nation or its inclusion in the neighbouring state X, Y, Z, etc. But in all cases he must fight against small-nation narrow-mindedness, insularity and aloofness, he
