Transcript 20 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF 'HI 3. THE CRITERION OF INTER NATIONALISM The draft, as we already know, is making an effort to proceed in its construction from the viewpoint of world economy and its inner tendencies— a thing which deserves recognition. The Pravda is absolutely right when it says that therein lies the basic and fundamental difference between us and national patriotic Social Democracy. Only by taking world economy, which dominates over all its parts, as a basis can a program of the international proletarian Party be built. But precisely in analyzing the main tendencies of world development the draft displays not only an incompleteness, which depreciates its value, as has already been pointed out above, but also falls into gross one- sidedness leading to grave blunders. The draft refers many times, and not always in the proper place, to the law of uneven develop' ment of capitalism as to the main and almost all- determining law of that development. Many mistakes in the draft including the fundamental error, are theoretically based on the one-sided and mistaken non-Marxian and non-Leninist interpretation of the law of uneven development. In the first chapter the draft says: "Uneven economic and political development is an absolute law of capitalism. This unevenness becomes still more accentuated and intensified in the epoch of imperialism." This is true. This formula in part condemn? Stalin's formulation of the question, according to which Marx and Engels did not know the law of uneven development and that it was first discovered by Lenin. On September 15, 1925, Stalin wrote that Trotsky has no reason to refer to Engels vhc slO ine )eli he hei ve :>ec :his ibo :>ne I say by fin< of in ion of in PC an an on st< tn or vi ar th ex cc le at at t\
