Transcript by comrades who themselves were guilty of a tendency towards Right ideology, the exposure of the true menshevik substance of Rubinism was retarded. It was only quite recently, and not without the intervention of the Central Committee, that there was a sharp break in this respect. Both Rubinism and the mistakes of its former critics have been fundamentally exposed. Materials on this question can be found in the last issue of the Bolshevik.* Much that is similar to the situation in the region of political economy prevails in some other spheres of scientific work. The task of independently mastering- science and technique faces the bolsheviks as a militant problem of the day. Without definite successes in this direction we cannot move ahead with certainty. This is how matters stand with the problem of personnel. 3. HIE RE( ONSTRUCTION OK THE W;ORK OV OUR ORGANISATIONS. I will now deal with a third group of problems : problems of the reorganisation of the work of all the organisations of the proletariat in keeping with the new conditions and the transition to the period of reconstruction. The increase of activity amongst the masses and the new practical tasks dictate the most sweeping changes in the machinery of the proletarian dictatorship and the methods of its work. However, the reorganisation very often takes place too slowly. Let us take trade unions. This is the second year that the Party has been struggling for decisive readjustment of the unions to their new problems. "Eyes on production" is their new watchword. But its application up to this very day encounters tremendous obstacles in the union apparatus. Again and, again the leading bodies in the trade unions lag behind the masses, as is shown, for example, in their inability to take the lead of the shock brigade movement. The absence of proper checking of the work of the shock brigades leads to a large number of show resolutions and formal declarations, the unjustified assumption of the title of shock workshops, etc. The most advanced shock brigades frequently have no proper guidance, and therefore do not receive the requisite support. Yet the latter is one of the most important conditions for ensuring that the watchword of "Eyes on production" should in practice become the watchword of the trade unions, beginning with the works committee and ending with the highest trade union bodies. It stands to reason that to turn towards production cannot mean any forgetfulness of so-called "defensive" work. Concern for the every-day and petty requirements of the workers, sensitiveness to the workers' demand for better living conditions, closeness to the masses, have always been the first * Bolshevik, No. 2, January, 1930. 42
