Transcript Without the Party, Socialist Construction Is Not Possible in the Transitional Epoch Politics is concentrated economics, and the politics of the dictatorship—the most concentrated of any politics conceivable. The economic plan of perspectives is not a dogma given at the outset, but a working hypothesis. The collective checking up of the plan must take place in the process of its execution, in which the elements of the check are not only bookkeeping figures but also the muscles and the nerves of the workers and the political disposition of the peasants. To feel the way, to check up, to summarize, to generalize all this, can only be done by an active party, acting of its own free will, sure of itself. The Five Year Plan would be inconceivable without the certainty that all the participants in the economic processes, the managements of the factories and trusts, on the one hand, and the factory committees on the other, submit to party discipline, and that the nonparty workers do not slip away from the leadership of the nuclei and the factory committes. Party discipline, however, is completely fused with administrative discipline. The apparatus showed itself—and still shows itself even today—as all-powerful, to the extent that it has the possibility of expending the basic capital of the Bolshevik party. This capital is large, but not unlimited. The overstraining of bureaucratic command reached its highest limits at the moment of the crushing of the Right wing. One can go no further on this road. But by that is also prepared the bursting of administrative discipline. 28
