Transcript THE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 19 break out simultaneously in all countries, but passes on from country to country and requires closest class contact among them, especially on European territory, both with the object of defense against the most powerful foreign foes, and with economic objects. One may, it is true, try to object, declaring that since the period of the Ruhr crisis which was the very last impulse for the adoption of that slogan, the latter has not played a big role in the agitation of the Communist Parties of Europe and has, so to speak, not taken root. But this is fully true also ■of the slogans of a Workers Soviet Government, -etc., i. e., of all slogans to be used ON THE VERY EVE OF REVOLUTION. This may be ^explained by the fact that since the end of 1923, notwithstanding the mistaken political expectations of the Fifth Congress, the revolutionary movement jon the European continent has been on the decline. jBut that is exactly why it is detrimental to build a program, or some of its parts, under the impressions received only in that period. It was not by mere accident that, despite all prejudices, the filogan of a Soviet United States of Europe was accepted precisely in 1923 when a revolutionary outburst was expected in Germany and when the question of State inter-relationships in Europe assumed an exceedingly burning character. Every new accentuation of the European, and, particularly, the world crisis, is grave enough to be able to raise the main political problems, and to advance again the slogan of the United States of Europe. It is therefore fundamentally wrong to keep silent over the slogan without having rejected it, that is, to keep it somewhere in reserve, to be used "in emergency." On questions of principle the keeping in reserve policy does not hold good.
