Transcript 42 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OFrH] Here is what Bucharin wrote on the subject in c 1917: "Revolutions are the locomotives of history. The irreplaceable engineer of that locomotive can even in backward Russia be only the proletariat, but the proletariat cannot stay within the limits of the property relations of bourgeois society. It marches to power and towards Socialism. However, this mission which is being 'put on the order of the day' in Russia cannot be fulfilled 'within national bound aries.' Here the working class meets with an insur Di mountable wall"—(Take note: "an insurmountableforo wall."—L. T.)—"which can be broken through onl)gfn ( by the battering ram of the INTERNATIONAL^.^ WORKERS' REVOLUTION."—(Bucharin, "Class8 Struggle and Revolution in Russia," page 34, Rus*-nc sian edition). of i One could not express himself more clearlyalso Such were the views held by Bucharin in 1917,of tl two years after Lenin's alleged "change" in 1915who Perhaps the October Revolution taught Bucharinread differently? We shall see. ical In 1919, Bucharin wrote on the subject of theimoi "Proletarian Dictatorship in Russia and the Worldpres! Revolution" in the theoretical organ of the Comin-idea. tern, saying: Fi: "Under existing WORLD economy and the con-:han nections between its parts, with the simultaneousR^vc inter-dependence of the various national bourgeois [___ groups, jr STANDS TO REASON" (our em-^ phasis) "that the struggle in one country cannot end;0- ^ without a decisive victory of one or the other sideBucr in SEVERAL civilized countries." At that time this was even "self-evident." Further: "In the Marxian and quasi-Marxian pre-war literature, the question was many times raised as to whether the victory of Socialism is possible in one country. Most of the writers replied to this question in the negative" (And what about Lenin in 1915?— L. T.) "from which one does not at all conclude that it is impossible or inadmissible to start the revolution and to capture power in one country."
