Transcript splitters but which result in a revelation of the theoretical sterility and unscrupulousness of their authors. The most zealous of these attorneys-at-law for the right wing is the editor of the Socialist Call, who has emptied more than one ink bottle in an effort to prove that the Trotskyists are not at all different from the Stalinists and that both currents are incompatible with what he calls "a united revolutionary party, rejecting sectarianism and reformism".

"The Trotskyites refuse to be in a party with those who are not 'consistent revolutionists'. And all those who are not Trotskyites are not such 'consistent revolutionists' ...
