Transcript THE PARTY 111 varied. The Party must lead the struggle of the proletariat under the exceptionally difficult circumstances of inner as well as outer development; it must lead the proletariat in its attack when the situation calls for an attack; it must withdraw the proletariat from the blows of a powerful opponent when the situation calls for retreat; it must imbue the millions of unorganised non-Party workers with the spirit of discipline and system in fighting, with the spirit of organisation and perseverance. But the Party can acquit itself of these tasks only if it itself is the embodiment of discipline and organisation, if it itself is the organised detachment of the proletariat. Unless these conditions are fulfilled it is idle to talk about the Party really leading the vast masses of the proletariat. The Party is the organised detachment of the working class. The conception of the Party as an organised whole has become firmly fixed in Lenin's well-known formulation of the first point of our Party Constitution, in which the Party is regarded as the sum total of the organisations and the Party member as a member of one of the organisations of the Party. The Mensheviks, who had objected to this formulation as early as 1903, proposed to substitute for it a "system" of self-enrolment in the Party, a "system" of conferring the "title" Party member upon every "professor" and "high school student," upon every "sympathiser" and "striker" who gave support to the Party in one way or another, but who did not belong and had no inclination to belong to any one of the Party organisations. We need not stop to prove that had this odd "system" become firmly entrenched in our Party it would have been inundated with professors and students, it wrould have degenerated into a widely diffused, amorphous, disorganised "body" lost in a sea of "sympathisers," that wrould have obliterated the line of demarcation between the Party and the class and would have
