Transcript from all the responsible posts in the labor movement (Party or- o-anizations, editors, labor unions, parliamentary factions, co-oper- atives, municipalities, etc.), all reformists and followers of the "centre," and to have them replaced by Communists, even at the cost of 'replacing at the beginning "experienced" men by rank- and-file working men. 3. The class struggle in almost every country of Europe and America is entering the phase of civil war. Under such conditions the Communists can have no confidence in bourgeois laws. They should create everywhere a parallel illegal apparatus, which at the decisive moment should do its duty by the party, and in every way possible assist the revolution. In every country where, in consequence of martial law or of other exceptional laws, the Communists are unable to carry on their work law, fully, a combination of lawful and unlawful work is absolutely necessary. 4. A persistent and systematic propaganda and agitation is necessary in the army, where Communist groups should be formed in every military organization. Wherever, owing to repressive legislation, agitation becomes impossible, it is necessary to carry on such agitation illegally. But refusal to carry on or participate in such work should be considered equal to treason to the revolutionary cause, and incompatible with affiliation with the Third International. 5. A systematic and regular propaganda is necessary in the rural districts. The working class can gain no victory unless it possesses the sympathy and support of at least part of the rural workers and of the poor peasants, and unless other sections of the population are equally utilized. Communist work in the rural districts is acquiring a predominant importance during the present period. It should be carried on through Communist working- men of both city and country who have connections with the rural districts. To refuse to do this work, or to transfer such work to untrustworthy half reformists, is equal to renouncing the proletarian revolution. 6. Every party desirous of affiliating with the Third Inter- national should renounce not only avowed social patriotism, but also the falsehood and the hypocrisy of social pacifism; it should tematically demonstrate to the workers that without a revolutionary overthrow of capitalism no international arbitration, no talk of disarmament, no democratic reorganization of the League [ 28 ]
