Adelaide Journal (Newspaper) - November 24, 1920, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia Tea you cannot help liking realities of red Russia. British Labourie s. Views. Despotic Rule by fanatics. Or. L. Haden guest joint Secretary of the British labour delegation to Russia writes in the times one of the worst features of the to tide of Rossi by been tie making of that country into a mystery 3nd inhabited either by Angels or by devils. The troth is much More humdrum. The great differences Between Russia and England Are not moral differences at. The marvellous red legend of a country on which the Sun of communism is rising is As untrue a the White legend of a. Country in which civilization is drowned in blood and horror. The reason for the bolshevism Eoa Cem toot the superiority of their theory but the superiority of tiie discipline of their organization. The so called communist party is a military brotherhood of believers in a certain set of dogmas. Their tre Lgth is in the Nixa Natation which took Power by Foroe and Las ruthlessly used poorer end Tenor based on Power to preserve it. The difficulty in understanding the situation in Russia is to difficulty of penetrating behind the camouflage of fac Aust Aad communist wording of bolshevism statements to the crude and naked verities of the struggle for Power behind that screen. The reality is that a Small group of men with certain fanatically held materialist beliefs held with Oil the Intel Ity of religious conviction have seized Power and imposed on their adherents a nominal allegiance to their theories. Crude materialist fatalism. These men have made out of the theories of Karl Marx a new religion a religion of a crude sort of materialism Wirich excludes Ordinary scientific theories As it does religious and spiritual theories. The bolshevik its insist that biological conceptions must Toive place to their economic determinism that Art and music must be taught on marxian lines. Metaphysics they do not Low to be taught just a they do not allow Tho word of god to be mentioned in their schools. Lenin is Best understood if lie is thought of As a Central Asiatic Mahomed sending out the a of his new materialist religion from his High Tower of the Kremlin in Moscow and calling to the Bullions of the russian and siberian peasants Tii work fight and die for the new Conception or against the errors and evils of the Western democratic world. And this new Conception is already hopelessly old in the Western world. It is the kind of materialism that up cases of mind As an excretion of the brain a bile in an excretion of the interview with Lenin. Lenin sent a message lie would Reoe ivc w to 1.30 p., and at that time we had climbed up the Many stairs to his High up office. Past sentries with a sergeant s guard at Call on each Landing and assembled in a waiting room. There was no one with us and so noose of talking or movement outside. The whole place had a quiet chill effect morally and physically while a dampening on Chr interests of a. Small group of people who have got Power to their hands. Soviets i vice out. Meanwhile the soviet organizations Are dying out. Soviets assemble rarely and irregularly their sittings Are More lie a Public meeting than a business Assembly. The highest soviet institution the Central executive Cje does not meet for half a year or More. Soviet Russia is ruled ill fact by the so called political five Lenin Trotsky. Stalin. Kaveney and Kristu Uky its decision is absolutely final. These five Hariper a neither by the control of any representative institution nor by any acion of Independent democratic organization nor by criticism of free press or free word Are indeed omnipotent. But such revolutionary absolute Power shares the general sad Fate of every absolute Power. Omnipotent As far As the Mamm Are concerned omnipotent with respect to the Workman or peasant As Well As any bourgeoisie it is impotent As car As bureaucracy goes and again particularly its military and police services in which the five Are forced to rely for the fulfilment of its dictatorship. None of the Best intentions of the men in Power can be Here of any Avail absolute Power at the top automatically creates absolute Power of the worst kind at he Bottom. And one must acknowledge that All kinds of arbitrariness violence bribery and. Simple robbery Bloom in soviet Russia. Desperate efforts to separate groups of honest True communists Are drowned in this endless sea of militaristic and police corruption. Bolshevism Chiefe. Whether the tendency towards concentration of Power will go further still Only the future can say. We Are at any rate a Long Way off from the bout eos superstitions of Liberty constitutional democracy and workers control. How near we Are to a Napoleonic Era is a matter of speculation but not one of great importance for the people of Russia As it would probably not much change the present method and effects of bolshevism Rule. I was interested in the Nei tonalities of the commanding men. Only one of them is described As a to rids and the nearest touch with the peasantry is in two agricultural engineers.
