Transcript adopted the program of the "Five Year Plan in four years" and the "liquidation of the kulak as a class". The Right wingers demonstrated their complete inability for a revolutionary orientation and Marxian foresight, coming forward at the same time as the advocates of the Stalinist regime in the U. S. S. R. The characteristic feature of opportunism—to bow before the power of the present day—determines the whole attitude of the Brandlerites to the Stalinists: "We are prepared to acknowledge uncritically everything you do in the U. S. S. R., permit us only to carry out our policy in our Germany." The position of the Lovestoneites in the United States, of the Right opposition in Czecho-Slovakia, and their related semi- social democratic^ semi-Communist groups in other countries, bears a similar character. The Left Opposition conducts an irreconcilable struggle against the Right wing camp-followers of the Centrists, especially and principally on the basis of the Russian question and at the same time endeavors to liberate from the disintegrating influence of the Brandlerite leaders those worker-revolutionists who were driven into the Right opposition by the zig-zags of Centrism and its worthless regime. The Principle of the Left Opposition: To Speak Out What Is The petty bourgeois camp-followers, the "friends" of the Soviet Union, in actuality friends of the Stalinist bureaucracy, including also the officials dependent upon the Comintern in the various countries, light-heartedly close their eyes to the contradictions in the development of the Soviet Union, in order later, at the first serious danger, to turn their backs upon it. 38
