Transcript I. THE FORMATION OF THE CENTRAL BOURGEOIS COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY ORGANISATION OF THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS (MENSHEVIKS). THE party of the Russian Mensheviks—after being defeated in the open political struggle which it carried on against the Soviet power during the first years of the civil war, and after having finally arrived at the denial in principle of any possibility of Socialist construction in the Soviet Union, and at a programme of the restoration of capitalism—formulated in 1924 its tactical and programmatic line as follows in the " Platform of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party " :— Taking as a starting point that "the conditions of production in Russia are being re-shaped more and more on a capitalist basis by the course of objective developments and that, in consequence of Bolshevist economics, both Russian and foreign capital will inevitably conquer one position after another " (page 52 of the' " Platform "), that in general " the real Socialist re-organisation of society .... for the proletariat «... is possible only within the confines of a consistently democratic state system " (page 47), the Menshevist platform demanded :— (a) In the sphere of inner politics, a republican-democratic order based on " free " re-elections of the Soviets, the Soviet system being only permissible as a transition stage; (b) In the sphere of industry, the State to retain only the undertakings of a monopolist character and the great undertakings of the most important branches of production, with the reservation "in so far as the State is able to conduct these undertaking," whilst the remainder of the undertakings are to be restored to their former owners; (c) In the sphere of agriculture, the actual de-nationalisation of the land on the basis of " granting the individual owners the right to dispose freely of their land," whilst " the local organs of self-administration are only to have the right to dispose of the sold land "; (d) The de-nationalisation of trade on the basis of free private inland trade; the foreign trade monopoly to be simultaneously abolished and replaced by State regulation and a system of protective duties.
