Transcript THE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 11 disturbances for Europe as well as for the whole world. From here we draw the not unimportant con' elusion that there will be no lack of revolutionary situations within the next ten years any more than in the past. That is why it is so important to understand the mainsprings of development so that we may not be caught by their action unawares. If in the past decade, the main cause of revolutionary situations lay in direct consequence of the imperialist war, in the second post-war decade the main causes of revolutionary situations will be in the relations between Europe and America. A big crisis in the United States will give rise to new wars and revolutions. We repeat: There will be no lack of revolutionary situations. It is all a question of an international proletarian Party, the ripeness and fighting ability of the Comintern, the correctness of its strategical positions and tactical methods. This trend of thought has found absolutely no expression in the draft program of the Comintern. The mentioning of a fact of such great importance as the fact that "the economic center of the world has shifted to the United States of America," appears as a mere superficial newspaper remark and no more. It is of course absolutely impossible to say in justification of this that there was lack of space, for what are the questions that must find place in a program if not the principal questions? Besides, it should be added that too much space is given in the program to questions of secondary and third-rate importance—let alone the general literary looseness and the numerous repetitions, by a reduction of which the program might be condensed at least one-third.
