Like a cyclone, imperialism spins across the globe; militarism crushes peoples and sucks their blood like a vampire.
Capitalism is war; socialism is peace.
Imperialism is not the creation of any one or any one group of states.
In the present imperialistic milieu there can be no wars of national self-defense.
Just as invasion is the true and tried weapon in the hands of capital against the class struggle, so on the other hand the fearless pursuit of the class struggle has always proven the most effective preventative of foreign invasions.
