Transcript 74 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF not be realized by national means or within national boundaries, constitutes the heart of revolutionary internationalism. If, however, the final aim has been realized within national boundaries by the efforts of a national proletariat then the backbone of internationalism has been broken. The theory of the possibility to realize socialism in one country destroys the inner connection of the patriotism of the victorious proletariat with the defeatism of the proletariat of the bourgeois countries. The proletariat of the advanced capitalist countries is still on the road to power. How and in what manner it will march towards it depends fully and entirely on the question as to whether it considers the building up of socialist society a national or an international task. If it is at all possible to realize socialism in one country then one can believe in that theory not only AFTER the conquest of power but also "prior" to it. If socialism can be realized within the national boundaries of backward Russia, then there is the more reason to believe that it can be realized in advanced Germany. Tomorrow the leaders of the Communist Party of Germany will surely bring forward this theory. The Draft Program empowers them to do so. The day after tomorrow the Fench Party will have its turn. That will be the beginning of the downfall of the Corn' intern along the lines of social patriotism. The Communist Party of any capitalist country which will have become imbued with the idea that its | particular country possesses all the "necessary and sufficient" prerequisites for the independent con' struction of a "complete socialist society" will in substance in no respect differ from the revolution' ary social democrats who also began not with Noske but who definitely stumbled on August 4> 1914, on this very same question.
