Transcript 110 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM goes without saying that without these intangible moral ties connecting the Party with the non-Party masses, the Party could never become the decisive force of its class. The Party is an inseparable part of the working class. "We are the party of a class," says Lenin, "and therefore almost the entire class (and in times of war, during the period of civil war, the entire class must act under the leadership of our Party, must link itself up with our Party as closely as possible. But we would be guilty of Manilov- ism * and "khvostism" if we believed that at any time under capitalism nearly the whole class, or the whole class, would be able to rise to the level of the class consciousness and degree of activity of its vanguard, of its socialist party. No sensible Socialist has ever yet doubted that under capitalism even the trade union organisations (which are more primitive and more accessible to the intelligence of the undeveloped strata) are unable to embrace nearly the whole, or the whole, working class. To forget the distinction between the vanguard and the whole of the masses gravitating towards it, to forget the constant duty of the vanguard to raise these increasingly widening strata to this advanced level, only means deceiving oneself, shutting one's eyes to the immensity of our tasks and narrowing them." (Collected Works, Vol. VI, pp. 205-06, Russian edition.) (2) The Party as the Organised Detachment of the Working Class The Party is not only the vanguard of the w-orking class. If it desires really to lead the struggle of the class it must at the same time be the organised detachment of its class. Under the capitalist system the Party's tasks are huge and * From the name Manilov, the hero in Gogol's Dead Souls, who typifies a person filled with good intentions, a sentimental dreamer, but one completely lacking in strength of will and capacity to do things.—Ed.
