Transcript arising on firm socialist ground. This is indeed an epoch the like of which was never known in human history. Never before have social changes penetrated so deeply into the broad masses of the people. To remain in such an epoch a mere onlooker, an "objective and dispassionate" investigator of facts, is tantamount to failing to understand the real majesty and significance that should inhere in scientific pursuit, which should be based upon studying and satisfying the requirements of life. Generally speaking, science detached from life is defunct science, rank scholasticism, which in our generation and country is doomed to perdition. Life will rise above the concept "science for science's sake" and will if necessary create new seats of learning where the pulse of life will throb, where science will become the handmaid of life's complex purposes, where the scientists will not form an exclusive caste of wizards, but an organic part of the great family of toilers, and where all artificial barriers between mental and physical labour will be obliterated. Both kinds of labour should be exerted by every member of that great family to the full extent of his strength and ability. Then only will we see the real dawn of science, and emancipated human society, each member scientifically equipped and in possession of such resources and forces of nature as we cannot even conceive now, just as our remote ancestors could have had no idea of the marvels of contemporary technical achievement. Natural wealth sounds the keynote in developing of forces of production, and these forces can attain their highest development only in a communist order of society. Onward then along the road mapped out by our great teachers, Marx and Lenin, to a land of true liberty and real brotherhood of all men! Hail, the intimate union of science and labour! 72
