Chapter Summary

A little more than half a century has elapsed since the revolutionary struggle of the March Days. The great transformation that has occurred since that time demonstrates even more clearly, perhaps, the relation between the Slavs and the revolution. The Slavs appeared to be nations of slaves and peoples born to vegetate in servitude. The time has long passed, therefore, when the Slavs could be thought of as the embodiment of servile obedience: they have now joined the ranks of peoples with their own revolutionary classes, and there is now taking place among them a great cultural struggle for the emancipation of the working class and with it the whole of humanity. The Russian revolutionaries might have dealt with the tsar long ago if they had not been compelled to wage a simultaneous struggle against his ally - European capital.

Keywords: European capital; Russian revolution; servile obedience; Slavs
