For the proletariat of every European country, even to a greater extent than for the U.S.S.R.—the difference is only of degree —it will be of the most vital necessity to carry the revolution to the neigbouring countries and to support insurrections in them with arms in hand not because of abstract international solidarity, which is in itself unable to move the classes, but because of the vital considerations which Lenin has formulated hundreds of times—namely, without TIMELY aid from the international revolution we will not be able to hold out. The slogan of the Soviet United States corresponds with the dynamics of the proletarian revolution which does not
