The main thing in Leninism: ""Peace program" of the socialists, and their programme of "struggle for the end of the war", must proceed from the exposure of the lies about the "democratic peace", the peace-loving intentions of the belligerents, etc., which apply now to the people the demagogic Ministers, pacifist bourgeois, social-chauvinists and kautskians all countries. Every "peace programme" is a deception of the people and a hypocrisy if it is not based first and foremost on figuring out the masses of the necessity of revolution and to support the promotion, development beginning everywhere the revolutionary struggle of the masses (fermentation, protests, fraternisation in the trenches, strikes, demonstrations, letters from the front to relatives – for example, in France – that they do not subscribe to the war loan, etc., etc.). Support, expansion and deepening of any people's movement for the end of the war is the duty of the socialists. But in reality, this duty is performed only by those socialists who, like Liebknecht, from the parliamentary rostrum call on soldiers to lay down their arms, preach revolution, turning the imperialist war into a civil war for socialism." V. I. Lenin.
