P. s, lawyers, and others is nowhere to be seen on so wide a scale as in the bourgeois parliament), we Communists are in duty bound.   So while much of Lenin’s book is commentary upon numerous quotes from Marx and Engels and contrasting his interpretation to the then orthodox position, he fails to mention that he, like all Marxists before , were “opportunists” in the sense of after having read Marx and Engels they concluded that “political action” would be used. It was, after all, Lenin who threw overboard Marx's theory that revolution would come at the hands of the workers in capitalist society and was an historical inevitability; Lenin's own Russia would have to skip the capitalism, of which it had little at the turn of the century, and move straight to the revolution, forced onto the nation by Lenin.   Lenin’s contributions turned the communist movement around on the national question, awakened the communist movement.
