All these are strictly incidental factors. The lnter national collapsed during the days oi peace when it. made its first compromise with Capitalism. It collapsed because the majority that doruinated it compromised with the menace of war.
and accepted the fact of war; hoollapsed because it placed nationalfinterests shore international interests: it collapsed because it fuscd to fight aggressively in peace the conditions latent with the rnenice of war. In Ilksr the. International collapsed because it abandoned the class struggle.
nationally and internationally an abandonment that. begun in peace. was ccnplcted during war.
Socialist policy. whatever apparently startling changes it may show. is not at all lrrealting with the past: the break with the revolutionary traditiorts of Socialism was made many years ago. Socialist policy today is a direct result of our policy oi yesterday. and can be considered only in that light. We may crutch our criticism oi the majority in diaerent language. and cite dilerent facts: the fundamental issue has not changed. The revolutionist. accordingly. must reject a civil peace within the party.
As the lrnpeeialist seeks to put through his plans by pleading national nnity.
so Ilse Socialist majority seeks to perpetuate its policies and control by.
pleading party unity. The revoltstionist rejects both our principles are supreme. and alone vital.

Naturally the latter was the belief of the.
churchmen and their supporters. for it meant that whatever happened to the people. whatever were their lot in life.
whatever was done or not done for them by the chnrels. it mattered very little so.
