The draft employs the same method elsewhere by "alluding" to Lenin's words as a confirmation. Such is the "methodology of the draft." Of the great wealth of Marxian literature and the treasure of Lenin's works—directly ignoring everything that Lenin said and wrote and everything that he did, ignoring the Party program and the program of the Young Communist League, ignoring the opinions expressed by all Party leaders, without exception, in the the entire epoch of the October Revolution, when the question stood categorically (and categorically to what extent!) ignoring what the authors of the program themselves, Stalin and Bucharin, said up to 1924 inclusive—altogether • two quotations from Lenin, one from his article on the United States of Europe written in 1915 and another from his unfinished posthumous publication on cooperation written in 1923, have been used in defense of the theory of national socialism which was created to meet the exigencies of the struggle against so-called "Trotskyism" at the end of 1924 or the beginning of 1925. Everything that disproves these two quotations of a few lines—the whole of Marxism and Leninism—is simply set aside. These two artificially snatched
