Transcript for the acquisition of power under the form of a dictatorship of the -roups and parties that recognize the dictatorship of the proletariat. This work has not been sufficiently subjected to the dical reformation, the radical renovation, which are necessary for it to be recognized as Communist work, and as corresponding] to the tasks of the eve of proletarian dictatorship. 6. The conquest of political power by the proletariat does not put a stop to its class struggle against the bourgeoisie; on the contrary, it makes the struggle especially broad, acute, and pitiless. All the groups, parties, leaders of the Labor movement, fully or partially on the side of reformism, the "center," and so on. turn inevitably, during the most acute periods of the struggle, either to the side of the bourgeoisie or to that of the wavering ones, and the most dangerous are added to the number of the unreliable friends of the vanquished proletariat. Therefore the eparation of the dictatorship of the proletariat demands not only an increased struggle against all reformists and "centrist" tendencies, but a modification of the nature of this struggle. The struggle should not be limited to an explanation of the 'lacy of such tendecies, but it should stubbornly and mercilessly denounce any leader in the Labor movement who may be manifesting such tendencies; otherwise the proletariat \\ ill not know whom it must trust in the most decisive struggle against the bourgeoisie. The struggle is such, that the slight- t hesitation or weakness in the denunciation of those who show themselves to be reformists or "centrists," means a direct se ol' the danger that the power of the proletariat may be D by the bourgeoisie, which will on the morrow utilize in favor of the counter-revolution all that which to short-sighted people appears only as a "theoretical difference of opinion" to-day. 7. In particular one cannot stop at the usual doctrinaire refutat on of all "collaboration" between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie: The simple defense of "liberty and equality," under the condition of preserving the right of private ownership of the means of production, becomes transformed under the conditions of the dictatorship of the proletariat-which will never be able to sup- s completely all private ownership-into a "collaboration" th the bourgeoisie, which undermines directly the power of ho T wt ^ ?e dictatorshiP of the proletariat means the stiengthenmg and defense, by means of the ruling power [ 14 ]
