Transcript 90 THE DRAFT PROGRAM OF "In the interests of the workers, the decrees of the Canton Soviet proclaimed. . . workers' control of industry through the factory committees, the nationalization of big industry, transport and the banks." Then, measures are mentioned such as the "con' fiscation of all dwellings of the big bourgeoisie for the benefit of the laborers.. ." Thus the Canton workers were in power and the government was actually in the hands of the Communist Party. The program of the new government was not only to confiscate the feudal lands inasmuch as such exist in Kwantung in general; not only to establish workers' control of industry; but also to nationalize big industry, the banks and transport, and to confiscate the bourgeois dwellings and all property for the benefit of the laborers. The question arose, if such are the methods of a bourgeois revolution what should the proletarian revolution in China look like? Notwithstanding the fact that the instructions of the E. C. C. I. said nothing about the proletarian dictatorship and Socialist measures, notwithstanding the fact that Canton when compared with Shanghai, Hankow and other industrial centers of the country, has more of a petty-bourgeois character, the revolutionary upheaval effected against the Kuomintang led automatically to the proletarian dictatorship which, at its very first steps, found itself compelled by the entire situation to take more radical measures than those with which the October Revolution began. And this fact, notwithstanding its external paradoxical character is quite a normal outcome of the social relations of China as well as of the whole development of the revolution. Large and middle scale land ownership is most closely intertwined with urban, including foreign capital. There is no land owning caste in China
