Transcript 26 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF position proves that there could not even have been a thought of Socialism in one country at that time. That alone is the reason why the Party program does not condemn this "theory" but merely EXCLUDES it. But the Young Communist League program which was adopted two years later had to issue a direct warning against home-bred illusions and narrow-mindedness on the question of proletarian revolution, with the object of training the youth in the spirit of internationalism. But we will still speak of this later. The matter stands quite differently in the new draft program of the Comintern. In accordance with the revisionist evolution of its authors since 1924, the draft, as we have seen, chooses the directly opposite path. But the solution of the question of Socialism in one country in one way or another determines the significance of the WHOLE draft as a Marxian or a revisionist document. Of course the draft program carefully, persistently and severally puts forward, emphasizes and explains the difference between the Communist and reformist formulation of questions. But these assurances do not solve the problem. We have a situation something like that of a ship which is supplied and even overloaded with numerous Marxian mechanisms and appliances while its mainsail is raised so that it is purposely opened for all revisionist and reformist winds. Those who have learned from the experience of the last three decades and particularly from the marvelous experience of China during the recent years have learned to understand the powerful dialelctical inter-dependence between the class struggle and programatical Party documents, will
