MEMOIRS OF A TIBETAN MARXIST
Middle Ground Between Mao and the Dalai Lama?
by William Wharton, WW4 Report
"Some people profess to see a 'contradiction' in the fact that while point 4 of this resolution, which recognizes the right to self-determination and secession, seems to 'concede' the maximum to nationalism (in reality, the recognition of the right of all nations to self-determination implies the maximum of democracy and the minimum of nationalism), point 5 warns the workers against the nationalist slogans of the bourgeoisie of any nation and demands the unity and amalgamation of the workers of all nations in internationally united proletarian organizations. But this is a 'contradiction' only for extremely shallow minds, which, for instance, cannot grasp why the unity and class solidarity of the Swedish and the Norwegian proletariat gained when the Swedish workers upheld Norway's freedom to secede and form an independent state."
—V.I. Lenin on Clause 9 of the 1913 program of the Conference of Russian Marxists, in "The Right of Nations to Self-Determination," 1914
