Transcript THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF 1.—GENERAL STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAM In our epoch which is an imperialist epoch, i. e., an epoch of WORLD economics and WORLD politics, under the hegemony of finance capitalism, not a single national Communist Party can build its program wholly or chiefly on the conditions and tendencies of national develpment. This fully holds good also for the Party that holds sway in the U. S. S. R. The death knell for national programs was definitely sounded on August 4, 1914. The revolutionary Party of the proletariat can rely only on an international program corresponding to the nature of the present epoch as an epoch of the apex and destruction of capitalism. An international Communist program is by no means a summary of national programs or of their common features. An international program is based directly on an analysis of the conditions and tendencies of the world economic and world political system as a whole with all its points of contact and antagonism, i. e., with all the antagonistic interdependence of its parts. In the present epoch the national orientation of the proletariat must and can, to a larger extent than in the past, be based only on a world orientation, and not vice versa. Therein lies the basic and fundamental difference between the Communist International and all shades of national socialism. Based on this, we wrote in January of this year the following: "It is necessary to start to draw up a Program of the Comintern (Bucharin's program is a bad program of a national section of the Comintern; it is not a program of a world Communist Party)."— (Pravda, January 25, 1928).
