Transcript as experience has shown, has far from invariably been fulfilled with satisfaction. An example is the sabotage of engineers and technicians in industry. In spite of having discovered many counter-revolutionary organisations for sabotage, we have still not yet properly cleansed our state machinery of saboteurs. The latter continue to maintain their group solidarity, and are headed by prominent ideologists, irreconcilable enemies of the soviet government, drawn from the old scientific and technical forces. We still have to deal with individual acts, overt and covert, of these people. In their person the soviet order has relentless enemies, always dreaming of the return to power of the landlords and capitalists. Characteristically enough, these wrecking organisations noticeably increased their activity at the sharpest moments of the Trotskyist struggle against the Party. The ideologists of counter-revolution were banking on the disintegration of the Party. The open demonstrations of the Right opposition were also of importance to them. Thus the academician Platonov, one of the most prominent ideologists of monarchism, frankly declared in his evidence : "I consider the most politically far-sighted people to be the Right elements in the ruling parly, since their outlook, taken in perspective, is correct." The enemies of the working class interpreted the political position of the Right elements in the Party after their own fashion. Naturally, we cannot expect that the ideologists of counterrevolution and active participants in sabotage should abjure their own cause. The workers' dictatorship takes decisively repressive steps against them. But this counter-revolutionary group plays the part of a tiny minority even amogst the old experts. Up to the most recent date the most prominent part in the Union Academy of Science at Leningrad and the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences at Kiev was played by anti-soviet elements. In spite of this, we cannot consider these counter-revolutionaries to be representative of the main body of the old intellectuals. At all events they did not succeed and could not succeed in rallying round themselves an\ considerable proportion of the intellectuals. At the same time we must recognise that the work of sifting out the intellectuals, particularly amongst the engineers and technicians, continues to be extremely unsatisfactory. Our trade unions have not been able to cope with the task. Yet this task must be classed amongst our most important obligations. When historic events, such as the turning of the middle peasant towards socialism and the liquidation of the kulaks as a class, are taking place, there is no room for neutrality in politics. The whole mass of the old intellectuals, and the technical personnel in particular, must realise this. 1930 is the last date for choosing the road. Either with the proletariat and the peasant masses to socialism, 38
