Problems of the Organisation of Labour

I F, i~1 the first period of the Soviet revolution, the principal accusa-tions of the bourgeois world were direCl:ed against our savagery and blood-thirstiness, later, when that argument, from frequent use, had become blunted, and had lost its force, we were made responsible chiefly for the economic disorganisation of the country. In harmony with his present mission, Kautsky methodically translates into the language of pseudo-Marxism all the bourgeois charges against the Soviet Government of destroying the industrial life of Russia. The Bolsheviks began socialisatioll without a plan. They socialised what was not ready for socialisation. The Russian working class, altogether, is not yet prepared for the administration of industry; and so on, and so on.
