Transcript THE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 41 and the putting up of a proletarian government in one country does not yet guarantee the complete victory of Socialism. The main task of Socialism— . the ORGANIZATION OF SOCIALIST PRODUCTION—still remains ahead. Can this task be accomplished, can the final victory of Socialism in one country be attained, without the joint efforts of the proletariat of several advanced countries? No, this IS IMPOSSIBLE. To overthrow the bourgeoisie, the efforts of one country are sufficient—the victory of our revolution bears this out. For the final victory of Socialism, FOR THE ORGANIZATION OF SOCIALIST CONSTRUCTION. THE EFFORTS OF ONE COUNTRY, PARTICULAR- I LY OF SUCH A PEASANT COUNTRY AS RUSSIA, ARE INSUFFICIENT. For this the efforts of the proletarians of several advanced countries are necessary . .. "Such, on the whole, are the characteristic features of Lenin's theory of the proletarian revolution."— (Stalin, "Lenin and Leninism," Russian 1924 edition, pages 40-41). One must admit that the "characteristic features of Lenin's theory" are outlined here quite correctlv In the later editions of Stalin's book this passage was altered to read in just the opposite way and the "characteristic features of Lenin's theory" were developed within a year as. .. Trotskyism. The Seventh Plenum of the E.C.C.I, passed its decision, not on the basis of the 1924 edition but of the 1926 edition. That is how the matter stands with Stalin. It could not be any sadder than that. One could, it is true, reconcile himself with this, were it not for the fact that matters are just as sad with regard to the Seventh Plenum of the E.C.C.I. There is one hope left and that is that at least Bucharin, the real author of the draft program, "always proceeded" from the possibility of the realization of Socialism in one country. We shall see.
