Transcript I gained a victory over the bourgeoisie, of making the greatest national sacrifices for the overthrow of international capitalism. ■'■ In the countries in which fully developed capitalist states &3st, the labor parties, comprising the vanguard of the proletariat, must consider it as their primary and most important task to combat the opportunist and petty bourgeois pacifist confusion of the ideas and the policy of internationalism.
