This IL* fbameless exaggeration, for Kautsky knows well that the men of the Left had put forward a different alternative: that the party should either join in the imperialist plunder and deception or preach, and prepare for revolutionary action. Kautsky also knows tnat only the German censorship prevents the men of the Left from exposing this idle talc which he spreads in order to pander to the Suedekums. As regards the relation between the "proletarian masses and the "handful of parliamentarians," Kautsky here puts forward one of the most hackneyed objections: A*Lf£t me lefVe thl German* aside, that we may not be defending ourselves. But who would asert in all seriousness •,nHPU^S IT? SUch aa Vai!1™t and Guesde, Hyndman and Plekhanov had become imperialists and betrayed Socialism! JLFa- ? lSlde -h?

But who will dare to assert that it sufficed for a handful of parliamentarians to give an order to four million class-conscious German pre- letarians for them to veer right round within 24 hours and ga against their former aims? If this were true, it would prove, ot course, that not our Party alone, but also the masses, had *r,nrfi,^a.'!tShk,J i? heT mnti,.n*' obviously, at the Internationale, th* paser de^rv.1.w.™??
