Transcript essence of Trotskyism was its denial of the possibility of a stable alliance with the petty proprietor, the middle peasant, and its lack of faith in the possibility of the successful building of socialism in the U.S.S.R. Without exposing this defeatist essence of Trotskyism and fighting all its variations, the working class of our country would be unable to overcome the obstacles in its path with indomitable persistence and enthusiasm. The rout of Trotskyism .and the consolidation of the alliance with the middle peasant were the most important preliminary conditions for the successful progress of socialist construction. Our resolute struggle against the Right opportunists was also of tremendous significance for the principle at stake. It was essential in order to transform the alliance with the middle peasant into a weapon wherewith to fight the capitalist elements for the socialist reconstruction of agriculture. Right waverings made their appearance in the Party with particular force just at the time when the working class was to enter upon a policy of decisive offensive against the capitalist elements, particularly in the villages, which was bound to add to the waverings of the petty bourgeois elements. Nor is it an accident that the capitulation of the right- wingers in our Party coincided with the drastic swing in the attitude of the middle peasantry towards socialism. The struggle against the right-wingers means the struggle against petty bourgeois waverings in the working class, not to speak of pro-kulak waverings amongst the peasantry. Without exposing the liquidatory essence of the Right opportunists' policy, without overcoming the Right waverings in the ranks of the Party, we could not have carried out the mobilisation of the working class, and the mass of peasantry likewise, for the successful application of the policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class. Such was the tremendous principle at stake in the struggle against the Right deviation and the conciliatory attitude towards it. However, the struggle against Trotskyism and the Right deviation cannot only be regarded as a stage passed through. In new forms, variations of these moods are still with us and we shall meet them again in the future. The struggle on two fronts has not been removed by the Party from the order of the day. Lapses in the application of the Party's policy are still far from rare. There is still, even in the ranks of the Party, not a little of the petty bourgeois spinelessness and hysteria so characteristic of the Trotskyist frame of mind. They show themselves in instances of "Leftism," like the substitution of administrative pressure for real mass work in carrying through collectivisation, like the expropriation as "kulaks" of some middle peasants who have not as yet entered the path of collectivisation, or closing churches by administrative decree, etc. Here, too, must be 45
