Transcript "Trotskyism" entered the body of the S.P., that Party passed through three splits, carried out in such a demoralizing way that they resulted neither in numerical growth or consolidation, nor in political clarification? And is it not also a fact that the Centrists in the Socialist Party, who have had but one audible war-cry— "Unity at all costs!"—have followed a policy which has left only a broken shell of the old Socialist Party? More than sixty years ago, Engels reminded us: "We must not let ourselves be influenced by all this noise for unity. The greatest artisans of discord are those who have this word most often on their lips, as at this moment the Bakuninists of the Jurasian Switzerland, the artisans of all the splits, that do not stop the clamor for unity. These fanatics of unity are either narrow spirits who would mix all and make of it a shapeless dough, which when no longer stirred will bring out still more sharply the differences that now find themselves in the same pot:—(in Germany we have a very fine example of these people who preach the reconciliation of the workers with the middle class)—or they are the people who consciously or unconsciously want to deviate from this movement. That is why the greatest sectarians, the greatest braggarts and fakers demand at certain moments with the greatest violence, Unity. In our existence, nobody has done us greater harm, nobody has shown us greater falseness than these braggarts of Unity." The final count in the indictment against the Marxists is that their policy leads to bureaucratism "after a successful revolution". Indeed! But we look in vain through all the anaemic theoretical elucubrations of the eminent editor (and all his co-thinkers) for an explanation of how it was possible for "sectarians" and systematic "splitters" to bring about a successful revolution. Their very failure to deal with this decisive point is refutation enough of the author's puerile identification of Bolshevism with Stalinism. Bolshevism—the doctrine and movement through which Lenin continued 6
