Transcript 66 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF capitalism depends on the second lever, and that is the world proletarian revolution. The gigantic importance of the Soviet Union lies in the fact that it is a pillar of the world revolution and not at all because it is able to build up socialism independent of the world revolution. The economic and political problem enters the world arena. Can the bourgeoisie secure for itself a new great epoch of capitalist growth and power? Merely to deny this, depending on the "hopeless position" which capitalism is in would be simple revolutionary nonsense. "There is no absolute hopelessness" (Lenin). The present unstable class equilibrium in the European countries cannot con' tinue indefinitely precisely because of its instabil' ity. When Stalin and Bucharin maintain that the U.S.S.R. can get along without "State" aid of the proletariat of the other countries, that is, without its victory over the bourgeoisie, because the present j active sympathy of the working masses protects us from intervention, this betrays such blindness as i the entire ramification of the principal mistake inj general. It is absolutely incontrovertible that after the | Social Democrats had disrupted the post-war in' surrections of the European proletariat against the! bourgeoisie, the active sympathy of the working masses saved the Soviet Republic. The European bourgeoisie proved, during these years, powerless in waging war against the Worker's State on a large scale. But to think that this correlation of forces will continue for many years, let us say, until the final establishment of socialism in the| U.S.S.R. means to display the utmost short-sightedness and a judgment of the progress of a long period by the immediate development. Such anl unstable position in which the proletariat cannot
