Transcript 40 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF TRIES HAS NOT ARRIVED."—(Lenin, Vol. 18, part 1, pages 137-138. Our emphasis). We hope that this passage is sufficiently instructive. Firstly, Lenin himself emphasizes in it that the ideas which he advanced have developed "in many of our works, in all our speeches, and in the whole of our press"; secondly, this outlook was uttered by Lenin not in 1915, two years before the October Revolution, but in 1921, the fourth year after the October revolution. As far as Lenin is concerned, we venture to think that the question is clear enough. One only has to ask now—what was formerly the opinion of the authors of the draft program as to the basic questions now in hand?

We already know that the Party NEVER TOOK THIS AS A STARTING POINT. On the contrary "in many of our works, in all our> speeces and in the whole of our press," the Party proceeded from the contrary position which found its highest expression in the program of the C.P.

What Stalin thought of this question in 1905 and 1915 we have absolutely no means of knowing as there are no documents on the matter whatever. But in 1924 Stalin gave an outline of Lenin's views on the building up of Socialism, as follows: "The overthrow of the power of the bourgeoisie
