within just about three weeks, millions of people came into activity with a
common purpose and demonstrated what this could produce. The general strike
was no longer a romantic dream, it was there. And if it was there, this
meant that the western working class was not a spent corrupted force, as it
had been portrayed for so long, and that the prospect of the proletarian
revolution was still valid, even if it was not there yet, in any shape or
form.
