INTRODUCTION TO COMMUNIST ESCHATOLOGY

"As Lenin once said: 'No dark force will withstand the alliance of science, the proletariat and technology.' Those prophetic words have become living reality. We have smashed and destroyed the evil force of the exploiters. We have wiped out for good all forms of economic and spiritual oppression. And now we are concentrating more and more of our effort on eliminating man's dependence on the elements, on subjugating them to man's will. Man will thereby take the last hurdle on his road to the realm of true freedom."
