Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the articles published in the newspaper Pravda in September-December 1920. It includes the articles of 'The Average Communist', the article of 'The Social Basis of the October Revolution', and the article of 'A Straw for the Drowning White Guards'. The psychological isolation of average Communists from the leading partygroups, and the isolation of leading groups from the proletarian masses - these are unquestionable facts. There are several causes. Besides what was said at the outset, it is necessary to point to the inattention of responsible comrades to the education of rank-and-file Communists, the difference in living conditions, the penetration into leading posts (mainly in the soviets) of careerist elements who are intrinsically alien to us, and the beginnings of psychological degeneration among a certain part of the old Communists.
