Transcript "The consequences of this policy are, prior to a working class revolution, splits and splits; and after a successful revolution, as in Russia, bureaucratic suppression. "The sectarian notion that all those without the perfect line are conscious or unconscious counter-revolutionaries, 'Trotsky-Fascists' or 'Spanish assassins', must ultimately lead to the institution of a bureaucratic regime by such a sectarian group in power. "Trotskyism and Stalinism, arch-enemies in program, are nevertheless children born of one womb." (Socialist Call, Sept. 11, 1937). As can be seen, every sentence a flawless pearl, and sometimes two. The "lasting fact" is that the Marxists have been unable to remain in the "other revolutionary, but non- Trotskyite" organizations. Concretely, they could not remain in the Socialist Party of Leon Blum for the simple reason that the People's Front bureaucracy inside the party used its apparatus-control to expel them for their revolutionary views. Nor could they be admitted into the P.O.U.M. in Spain because—incorrigible sectarians—they were against the disastrous policy of supporting the People's Front and of entering a bourgeois government instead of fighting for such sectarian notions as workers' power. Nor could they remain in the Norman Thomas party because they not only repeated the arguments of the Call editor that support of La Guardia was a betrayal of socialism, but they actively fought the betrayers and as a result were expelled. Blum and Thomas could not ask for a better advocate against the criticisms of the left wing than this spokesman for a "united revolutionary party"! It seems, moreover, that our "approach" is wrong because... it leads to splits prior to the revolution. It would have been better if our theorist of "Trotskyism- equals-Stalinism" had remembered the proverb that it is imprudent to speak of a rope in the house of the hanged. Is it not a fact that before the unmentionable virus of
