There is no force like Lenin, who, at the remark, in 1917, that no one Soviet party is ready to take power from the hands of the Provisional government, replied: "There is such a party!" Of course, we can not consider different "Trotskyist", or Stalinist, or anarchist groups now in existence as ready to take power.
