Transcript make a move or apply the smallest decision without first consulting the secretary of the corresponding Party committee and soliciting his approval. Similarly no manager of a factory or an enterprise and no functionary of a trade-union will be appointed or "proposed" by the higher government organs without previously getting the approval of the secretary of the Party committee. All conflicts of decision are judged by the higher authorities of the Party in accordance with a single criterion: the general line of the Party. The secretary of the Party committee is the all-powerful governor of his territory in social, moral, political, economic matters. He is answerable for his actions only to the higher rank of the Party. Locally he has absolute power. The Central Committee and Its Political Bureau In the center of Moscow rises a huge, imposing edifice. All its doors are carefully guarded by G.P.U. agents in uniform. Inside there are vast offices with immense files. These contain, carefully numbered and classified, information about all the political and economic "responsibles" in the country.

It is he who has chosen them and is their unquestionable master. Stalin! Stalin is the secretary general of the Central Committee of the Party. In this position, he has succeeded, as a result of long, detailed effort, to make of the Party apparatus a sure and modern instrument of domination —his domination. All the high functionaries of the Party owe him their positions. They have sought their jobs and obtained them thanks to their fidelity and devotion to him, their master. Little by little, all functionaries, even those of the third order, who appeared to be doubtful in the slightest degree, have been eliminated. All now owe everything to Stalin, who has the patient and minute talent of feeding the flame of gratefulness owed him; who—which is more important—has a remarkable flair for discovering in time all those capable of opposition to him.
