Transcript — HTHE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 23 ance of the fundamental error which the draft program, submitted to the Sixth Congress, has failed to avoid. * Right after the one-sided characterization of the law of uneven development pointed out by us, the draft program says: "From this it follows that the international proletarian revolution must not be regarded as a single simultaneous and universal act. The victory of socialism is at first possible in a few or even in one capitalist country." That the international revolutions of the proletariat cannot be a simultaneous act, of this, it goes without saying, there can in general be no" dispute among grown up people after the experience of the October Revolution effected by the proletariat of a backward country under pressure of historical necessity, without having in the least waited for the proletariat of the advanced countries "to even out the front." To that extent the reference to the law of uneven development is absolutely correct and quite in place. But matters stand quite differently with the second half of the deduction—namely, the meaningless statement that the victory of Socialism is possible "in one capitalist country." To prove its point the draft program simply says—"From this it follows." One gets the impression that it follows from the law of uneven development. But it does not follow at all. "From this follows" something quite the contrary. If the historical process would be such that some countries develop not only unevenly, but even INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER, isolated from each other, then from the law of uneven development would no doubt follow the possibility of the building up of Socialism in one capitalist country—at first in the most advanced country
