Lenin was the first to discover that capitalism 'inevitably' caused war; and he discovered this only when the First World War was already being fought. Of course he was right. Since every great state was capitalist in 1914.

列宁是第一个发现资本主义“不可避免地”引起战争的人;他是在第一次世界大战已经打响的时候才发现这一点的。他当然是对的。因为每个伟大的国家在1914年都是资本主义国家。
