Transcript THE PARTY 113 a subject of repeated attacks by wavering elements who accuse us of "bureaucracy," "formalism," etc. It hardly needs to be proved that systematic work of the Party, as one whole, and the leadership of the struggle of the working class would have been impossible without the enforcement of these principles. On the organisational question, Leninism stands for the strict enforcement of these principles. Lenin terms the fight against these principles "Russian nihilism" and "gentleman's anarchism" which deserve only to be ridiculed and thrown aside. This is what Lenin has to say about these wavering elements in his book entitled One Step Forward, Two Steps Backward: "The Russian nihilist is especially addicted to this gentleman's anarchism. To him the Party organisation appears to be a monstrous 'factory,' the subordination of the part to the whole and the submission of the minority to the majority appears to him to be 'serfdom' . . . the division of labour under the leadership of a centre evokes tragi-comical lamentations about people being reduced to mere 'cogs and screws' . . . the bare mention of the Party rules on organisation calls forth a contemptuous grimace and some disdainful . . . remark to the effect that we could get along without rules. ... It seems clear, however, that these outcries against the alleged bureaucracy are an attempt to conceal the dissatisfaction with the personnel of these centres, a fig leaf. . . . 'You are a bureaucrat because you were appointed by the Congress without my consent and against my wishes: you are a formalist because you seek support in the formal decisions of the Congress and not in my approval: you act in a crudely mechanical way, because your authority is the "mechanical" majority of the Party Congress and you do not consult my desire to be co-opted; you are an autocrat because you do not want to deliver power into the hands of the
