>What is Soviet power? What is the essence of this new power that is not wanted or can not be understood yet in most countries? The essence of it, which attracts workers of each country more and more, is that before the state was ruled, in one way or another, by rich men or capitalists, and now for the first time the state is ruled, withal in mass quantities, by classes that capitalism oppressed. Even in most democratic, even in most free republic, as long as the domination of capital remains, as long as land remains in private ownership, the state is always ruled by a small minority, nine-tenths of which consists of capitalists or rich men. > >For the first time in the world, the power of the state is built, here in Russia, in such a way that only workers, only working peasants, excluding exploiters, make up mass organizations – Soviets, and all state power is transferred to these Soviets. That is why, no matter how the representatives of the bourgeoisie in all countries slander Russia, everywhere in the world the word “Soviet” has become not only understandable, it has become popular, it has become a favorite for workers, for all labourers. And that is why, whatever the persecution of supporters of communism in different countries, the Soviet power is imminent, inevitable and in the near future will win all over the world. > >We are well aware that we still have many flaws in organization of Soviet power. Soviet power is not a wonderful talisman. It does not immediately heal from the faults of the past, from illiteracy, from lack of culture, from the legacy of savage war, from the legacy of predatory capitalism. But on the other hand, it makes it possible to move to socialism. It gives an opportunity to rise to those who were oppressed, and to take more and more into their own hands all the management of the state, all the management of the economy, all the management of production. > >Soviet power is the path to socialism, found by the masses of workers, and therefore true and therefore invincible.
