Transcript holocaust, a new partition of the world with its natural resources, or wealth. Notwithstanding the presumptuous twaddle of many high priests of science declaring that we are witnessing a period of tremendous activity in scientific research, man has far from mastered the resources of nature. There is still a long road of struggle with nature ahead. Only after he has gained real liberty, and overthrown the yoke of his oppressors, when he has abolished class society and done away with the struggle for existence, only when every one is working according to his ability and receiving according to his needs, will mankind have secured the necessary leisure to engage in intensive collective creative activity, to become even more intimately acquainted with nature and make greater efforts to wrest from nature her hidden forces and treasures. Only then will man gain control over the energy within the atom and the sun, the power of radiation and the might of the ocean. It is quite obvious that the natural wealth and the natural resources of the established communist system will be far different from those we now possess. They will constitute the function of an unprecedented development of the forces of production. Now we are growing, like the giant in the fable, not only day by day, but hour by hour. We accomplish in one year what it used to take decades to bring into being; in a decade what would have taken a century under different circumstances. We are determined to overtake and outstrip our "civilised" neighbours. We are building. We are erecting the glorious edifice of Socialism, realising the dream of the noblest of human minds that sacrificed their lives for this dream. Our entire country is in the process of reconstruction; our workers, engineers, technicians and producers of every kind are working, millions of them, vying with each other, spurred on by supreme enthusiasm 10
