Ruano había llegado a París dos años antes, alcoholizado, y por primera vez en su vida dejó de escribir y trabajar. ¿De dónde sacaba el dinero para tanto viaje y tanto champán? Cruzó como un pícaro del Siglo de Oro l. a. Europa más oscura del siglo XX, y lo más inquietante no es lo que hizo, sino l. a. cantidad de gente que hizo lo mismo que él. Españoles turbios en el París ocupado, de derechas e izquierdas, ciudadanos de un régimen amigo de Berlín en l. a. antesala de Auschwitz.
Son muchos los periodistas, poetas y editores que han apuntado l. a. gran sospecha: en París, Ruano se habría lucrado engañando y robando a judíos desesperados. Se rumoreaba en El Chiringuito de Sitges, donde se escondió huyendo de los angeles Resistencia francesa. Se lo comentaban unos a otros entre las tazas del Café Gijón. Hubo quien lo relacionó con otra sospecha todavía más negra: l. a. matanza y expolio de judíos que huían por Andorra. Pero no había una sola prueba. Y Ruano, con sus medios silencios, gozaba en secreto de su intrigante leyenda. «París en plena ocupación period más divertido que dramático», recordaba. ¿Qué hizo él en ese París tan «divertido»?

A sceptical Social Democrat, Elena Kuskova, wrote in 1899 that the actual results of capitalist industrialization in Russia were indeed ‘depressing and capable of plunging the most optimistic Marxist . . 10 These very understandable doubts were the reason that the Petersburg strikes of 1896 were so exhilarating for the Social Democratic praktiki. Their impact can best be gauged by remarks made by the liberal historian and party leader Paul Miliukov, writing less than a decade after the event: ‘In June, 1896, St Petersburg was roused by a startling movement of workingmen, the like of which it had never before seen.
Worker movement’ in this slogan means a militant, anti-capitalist, self-protection movement of worker protest. ‘Socialism’ means the socialist message, as spread by committed propagandists and agitators. Social Democracy happens when the two sides realize that they need each other. The worker movement acknowledges that only socialism can truly end worker exploitation and misery. The socialists acknowledge that socialism can only be established when the workers themselves understand its necessity and are ready to fight for it.
In Lenin’s mind the main ‘democratic elements’ were the urban workers and the narod. The emotional meaning of this episode is shown in a later poster by Walter Crane, created specifically at the request of Russian Social Democrats in London – just as Lenin’s Act Two concerns a specifically Russian task not faced by Social Democracy in Europe. In contrast to the worker in the previous poster, the central figure here has awakened and filed through the chains that kept him from acting. He looks with grim determination at the crowned eagle of tsarism that has dug its claws into him.
