Transcript then the Soviets began to flourish again; and they soon acquired a prominent position in the country. 4. The history of the German and the Austrian revolutions shows the same situation. When the popular masses revolted, when the revolutionary wave rose so high that it washed away the strongholds of the monarchies of the Hohenzollerns and the Hapsburgs, in Germany and in Austria, the Soviets or Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies were formed with gigantic rapidity. At first the real force was on their side, and the Soviets were well on the way to become practically the power.

But to proceed to a direct organization of Soviets in the absence of the above three conditions is impossible. 7.
