Transcript A State Blunder The Stalinite dictatorship has taken its revenge. The shooting of sixteen prisoners is no more than a drop in the bucket of terrorism, but it is different from any of the previous mass executions in Russia since 1921. Stalin has got rid of two men whose careers in the Bolshevist party were as long as his, who had been joint actors in the October Revolution, who had shared with him the confidence of Lenin, and who with him succeeded to the leadership of the State after Lenin's death. It had been thought that their part in making the Soviet State would have preserved these old colleagues. That they should have been shot after such a farcical trial and that the occasion should be taken to institute a new purge against the remaining members of the old guard of the Revolution suggests that there is a strong element of vindictiveness in Stalin's character. He surrounds himself with men of his own making and devotes all the power of the State to removing those who, however, remotely, might become rival centers of authority. It could have been argued a year or two ago that the so-called "Trotskyists" represented a real opposition movement, that they were the heirs of the aggressive internationalism of the first phase of the Revolution as against Stalin's refusal to consider the export value of Communism and his concentration on domestic policy. But the opposition has been pretty firmly repressed, especially since the last purge eighteen months ago. Whatever the reasons, whether to encourage the others, or to feed a scare against Germany (the intervention of whose secret agents is one of the few probabilities in the affair), or to rouse a wave of popular feeling for Stalin in order to cover up the burdens of new sacrifices for armaments, or to prepare the way for the new (democratized!) Constitution, the trial and its result are a bad business. The Russian Government has given itself an evil name and weakened its influence for peace in the world. August 28, 1936. 10
