Transcript -- The Kremlin in Moscow — Citadel of World Communism capable of it. The masses had to be driven back to their erstwhile status of serfdom. A new ruling class was formed, composed of the technological ancl management intelligentsia, led by the new political elite, the Communist Party. The latter included many of the more able- workers, but the mass of workers refused to accommodate themselves to the new subservient status, ancl by the end of the blood purge* (1938) the social composition of the Party had shifted almost entirely away from the workers and into the new ruling class, headed by Stalin. Outwardly the Party remained more or less the same, and Stalin methodically fostered that fiction; but a new class had been enthroned, and it was not the working class. In Moscow, back in the late twenties, when I represented the faction of the Communist Party coming to power in the American Party, I wrote a thesis dealing with the rise of the "new middle" or managerial class in American society. On orders from Stalin it was translated into Russian and (abbreviated) appeared in the- Bolshevik, theoretical organ of the Communist Party. It also appeared in two installments (1930 ) in the American Communist. Stalin saw in the mid- twenties the rise to power of managerial strata in Soviet society, and he used my article to say it indirectly. Page 30 Stalin rose to power on the backs ol that new managerial class,** while the defeated working class slid clown, down to a servitude worse than any under the Czars. The Managerial Class and the State In the course of shifting its power base from the working to the managerial class, the Communist Parte underwent drastic changes. From a collectivist party with some internal democracy, it grew into a militarized, police-like enforcement instrument over the masses, with functions spearheaded by the political police (OGPU). After reorganization, only the facade of the Parte as inherited from Lenin remained. Stalin continued to speak in the name of that facade, but authority was vested in three- power apparatuses, as follows: 1. The Political Police (OGPU), which commanded all police forces "The managerial class includes all directors, managers, .superintendents, etc., of fac- turis-s. mines, mills, commercial .hie! transport enterprises, communication services, offices, theatres. It includes also technicians, engi- neers, scientists', artists, ev-riti-rs, doctors, pro- fessors, and other professionals.
