Transcript which would very soon fling aside both steps, even should it not succeed in leaping over them right away. The Mensheviks and Social Revolutionists would form a bloc with the Praetorian wing of Centrism and cover up the imperialists on the precipitous decline of the revolution as they sought to cover them in 1917 during the sharp ascent. In the opposing camp, a no less decisive regrouping of forces would take place under the banner of the struggle for the October. The revolutionary elements of the Soviets, the trade unions, the cooperatives, the army, and finally and above all, the advanced workers in the factories, would feel, in the face of the threatening danger, the need to join together closely under clear slogans around the tempered and tested revolutionary cadre which is incapable of capitulation and betrayal. Not only the Centrist faction but also the Right wing of the party would produce not a few revolutionists who would defend the October revolution with arms in hand. But for this they would need a painful internal demarcation, which cannot be carried out without a period of confusion, vacillations and the loss of time. Under these decisive circumstances, the faction of the Bolshevik- Leninists, sharply marked out by its past and steeled in difficult tests, would be called upon to play the role of a crystal dipped into a saturated solution. All around the Left Opposition would take place the process of the unification of the revolutionary camp and of the rebirth of the true Communist party. The presence of a Leninist faction would double the chances of the proletariat in the struggle against the forces of the counter-revolutionary overthrow. 32
