Transcript fHE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 65 ithout entering "the arena of the world-wide proletarian revolution" then the International is jartly a subsidiary and partly a useless institution, ie Congresses of which can be held once in four fears, once in ten years or perhaps not at all.

Without a victorious proletarian revolution we will not be able to build up Sialism. The European workers and the workers ie world over must clearly understand this. [he lever of economic construction is of tremend- is significance. Without proper guidance, the jictatorship of the proletariat would be weakened jut its downfall would be such a blow to the inter- lational revolution from which it would take many |ears to recover. But the main historical differ- ice between the socialist world and the world of
