Transcript THE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 91 in opposition to the bourgeoisie. The most widespread, generally-hated exploiter in the village is the wealthy peasant, the usurer, the agent of urban bank capital. The agrarian revolution has therefore just as much of an anti-feudal as it has of an anti- bourgeois character in China. The first stage of our October revolution in which the wealthy peasant marched hand in hand with the middle and poor peasant and frequently in the lead against the landlord will not, or as much as will not, take place in China. The agrarian revolution there will be from the very beginning, and also later on, an uprising not only against the few landlords and bureaucrats, but also against the wealthy peasants and usurers. If in Russia the poor peasant committees acted only in the second stage of the October revolution, in the middle of 1918, in China they will, in one form or another, appear on the scene as soon as the agrarian movement will revive. The breaking up of the rich peasants will be the first and not the second stage in the Chinese October. The agrarian revolution, however, is not the only meaning of the present historical struggle in China. The most extreme agrarian revolution, the general division of land, will naturally be supported by the Communist Party to the very end. But in itself this will not be a way out of the economic blind alley. It is now essential for China to have national unity and economic independence, that is, customs autonomy, or more correctly, a monopoly of foreign trade. And this means the EMANCIPATION FROM WORLD IMPERIALISM, for which China remains in perspective the MOST IMPORTANT SOURCE OF WEALTH, a means of livelihood and as a safety valve against internal explosions of capitalism in Europe today
