U., concentrated economic control and all channels of opinion in . its' absolute power. But Its chief strength lies In the capacity to win confidence and co-operation from the masses. The Communists do mt seek mandates from the pDoph. They decide what Is bes! tor the people and educate them—that is. propagandize (htm—to the point of supporling and even demanding those very things. • The party regards itself as th» expression rn an organized flghUvt:< form of the "dictatorship of the proletariat.'' "Tho PO77CY belongs to the proletariat," it 'dedans hi effect, "only we hold It in rtuct." Amateur Opinion No self-respecting trustee will guided by t>ie amateur opinion of the widow to whom the money belongs; Ire will use his own ex per. Judgment hi Investing it. The Communist Party likewise uses its own judgment, btit it always convince the widow of its wisdom—with pros 1 ., radio, schools, everything in its control this is relatively simple.

Tne party, however, has beon wise enough to draw Additional millions into direct participation: not in framing policies but hi putting them into life. The manual laborers and to some extent the lest o! the working class has a direct stake In the success oi the Kremlin. No effort Is spared to keep them <•?:> stantly conscious of this fact. TV 7.000.000 farmers—a total of some 25,000,000 people—who are in collectives have a similar stake. Thsn there arc millions in ."shock brigades." "enthusiast circle;." social work of a hundred kinds.
