Transcript The Path of the Left Opposition in the U. S. S. R. Remains the Path of Reform The analysis given above of the possibilities and chances of a counter-revolutionary overthrow shoula in no sense be understood that the present contradictions must absolutely lead to the open explosion of the civil war. The social sphere is elastic and— within certain limits—opens up various possibilities, in accordance with the energy and the penetration of the battling forces, with the internal processes depending upon the course of the international class struggle. The duty of the proletarian revolutionist consists under all circumstances of thinking out every situation to the end and also of being prepared for the worst outcome. The Marxian analysis of the possibilities and chances of the Thermidorian-Bonapartist overthrow has nothing in common with pessimism, just as the blindness and bragging of the bureaucracy has nothing in common with revolutionary optimism. The recognition of the present Soviet State as a workers' state not only signifies that the bourgeoisie can conquer power in no other way than by an armed uprising but also that the proletariat of the U. S. S. R. has not forfeited the possibility of submitting the bureaucracy to it, of reviving the party again and of mending the regime of the dictatorship—without a new revolution, with the methods and on the road of reform. It would be sterile pedanti^ were one to under- take to calculate in advance the chances of proletarian reform and of the attempts of the bourgeois upheaval. It would be criminal light-heartedness to contend that the former is assured, the latter excluded. 36
