Transcript capitalist restoration, together with their democratic agents, the Mensheviks, could play a leading role in all the economic centers of the Soviet republic! How far, on the other hand, had Centrism slipped down in the direction of the bourgeoisie when the official policy of the party for a number of years could serve as the legal cover for the plans and methods of capitalist restoration! The Left zig-zag of Stalin, an objective evidence of the powerful vitality of the proletarian dictatorship, which turns the bureaucracy around its own axis, in any case created neither a consistent proletarian policy nor a full-blooded Regime of the proletarian dictatorship. The elements of the second power contained in the bui'eaucratic apparatus have not disappeared with the inauguration of the new course, but have changed their color and their arms. They have undoubtedly even become stronger, in so far as the plebiscitary degeneration of the apparatus progressed. The wreckers now invest the tempos with an adventurist scope and thereby prepare dangerous crises. The bureaucrats zealously display the shield of socialism over the collective farms in which the kulaks are hiding. Not onl}T ideological but also organizational tentacles of the counter-revolution have penetrated deeply into the organs of the proletarian dictatorship, assuming a protective coloration all the more easily since the whole life of the official party rests upon lies and falsification. The elements of the second power are all the more dangerous the less the suppressed proletarian vanguard has the possibility of uncovering them in time and of purging its ranks of them. 27
