Transcript 15 imperialism and its relation to capitalism is as endless as the general discussion upon any scientific phenomena. But the discussion regarding the foundation of Socialist tactics against capitalist imperialism is a different matter, because such tactics had already been explained and stated in millions of copies of Socialist .newspapers and in the decisions of the International. The Socialist parties are not mere glorified debating clubs, but are the fighting organisations of the proletariat. When a number of battalions pass over to the enemy we cannot term them anything else than traitors. We must not be misled with fallacy that everyone views imperialism from a different standpoint. It is only jingoes like Kautsky and Cunow who can write learned volumes on the subject and plead that "the question has not yet been sufficiently discussed." The study of capitalism in all the ramifications of its historic development, and its national peculiarities, will never be exhausted. Learned men, and particularly pedants, will never cease to discuss the present mode of production in all its little details. But it would be more than ridiculous for Socialists to renounce their struggle against capitalism because many details of the system are capable of standing further discussion. Nevertheless, so far as imperialism is concerned, that is exactly what Kautsky, Cunow and Axelrod are doing. And sincere war began, none of the critics have attempted to critically analyse the Basle resolution, or to show wherein it errs.
