Transcript 46 THE DRAFT PROGRAM ( T one hand recognize in their holiday articles that c< italism, particularly in Europe, has outlived its u fulness and has become a brake on historical de\ opment, and who on the other hand express t conviction that the evolution of Soviet Russia tni itably leads to the triumph of bourgeois democra fall into the most pitiful and flat contradiction which these stupid and conceited confusionists I worthy. THE NEW ECONOMIC POLICY CALCULATED ON CERTAIN DEFINITE CO DITIONS OF TIME AND SPACE. IT IS MANOEUVER OF THE WORKERS' STA WHICH EXISTS IN CAPITALIST SURROUN INGS AND DEFINITELY CALCULATES C THE REVOLUTIONARY DEVELOPMENT ; EUROPE .. . Such a factor as time cannot be i out of consideration in political calculations. If admit that capitalism will really be able to - in Europe for another hundred or fifty years i that Soviet Russia will have to adapt itself to it its economic policy, then the question solves its automatically because, by recognizing this, we p suppose the crushing of the proletarian revoluti in Europe and the rise of a new epoch of capital revival. On what basis? If Otto Bauer has ( covered in the life of present-day Austria a miraculous signs of capitalist revival then all tt can be said is that the fate of Russia is pre-deti mined. But so far we do not see any miracles, a we do not believe in such. From our viewpoint, the European bourgeoisie will hold power in t course of several decades, it will under the prese world conditions signify not a new capitalist bloo: but economic stagnation and the cultural decline Europe. That such a process might be able draw Soviet Russia into the abyss can, general speaking, not be denied. Whether she would ha1 to go through a state democracy, or adopt soc other forms, is a question of secondary important But we see no reason whatever, for the adoptic of Spengler's philosophy. We definitely look f' ward to a revolutionary development in Europ THE NEW ECONOMIC POLICY IS MEREL AN ADAPTATION TO THE RATE OF TH^ DEVELOPMENT." (L. Trotsky. Five Years the Comintern, Social Democratic Criticism).
