Transcript gle against the two-class parties in the name of the party of the proletariat; the exposure of the emptiness and falsehood of the Krestintern [Peasants' International], the Anti-Imperialist League, and other Potcmkin villages*—all these were given the name of "Trotskyism". Begining with the turn of 1928, the masks were repainted but the masquerade did not cease. The proclamation of an armed uprising and Soviets in China at a time of counter-revolutionary triumph; the ad- venturistic economic tempos in the U. S. S. R. under the administrative whip; the "liquidation of the kulak as a class" within two years; the rejection of the united front Avith reformists regardless of time and place; the rejection of the slogans of revolutionary democracy for historically backward countries; the proclamation of the "third period" at a time of economic ascent—all this was now called Leninism. On the contrary, the demand for realistic economic plans, adapted to the forces and needs of the workers; the rejection of the program of the liquidation of the kulak on the basis of the peasant inventory; the rejection of the metaphysics of the "third period" in the name of a Marxian analysis of the economic and political processes throughout the world and in each country—all this was now declared to be "counter-revolutionary Trotskyism". The ideological connection between the two periods of the bureaucratic masquerade remains the theory * Potemkin was the prime minister under Catherine the Great. Prior to a tour by the czarina of a section of the country, Potemkin would have "model villages" erected along the road so as to demonstrate the excellent conditions under which the Russian peasantry was supposed to be living. Hence the popular phrase: "Potemkin villages".—Ed. 22
