Transcript 14 Manifesto,* which exposes the change of front by the leaders of Socialism, which can only be designated bv one word—treason. The Basle resolution does not speak of a national or of a people's war. We have examples of such wars during the period 1789-1871. The Basde resolution does not speak of a revolutionary war, which has never been repudiated by Social democrats. It deal* with, wars such as the present one, waged by both groups of the warring powers in the interest of capitalist imperialism and dynasties.

More than tW* representatives of the working class patties in everv land unanimously and formally expressed th^ir fi y viction that the impending" war wou^e "fTn" imperialistic character, and accordingly drew ™ 1 * tactical deductions therefrom. g V V certs»h We must reject, therefore ic ,.„ t.- ments to the effect that ffSS^t K^naSonl] and international tactics has not hPPn «,. «• nfti0nai cussed by the Socialist movement This ifw"^' dis' a mere sophism A many-sided and scientific discus' s,on of impenahsm had begun.
