True, this perspective does not harmonize with the pedantic and schematic conceptions concerning the inter-relations between economics and politics. But the responsibility for this disharmony which disturbs the newly adopted prejudice must not be blamed on "Trotskyism" but on the law of UNEVEN DEVELOPMENT. In the given case it is exactly in place. It would be unwise pedantry to maintain that the Chinese Communist Party, had it pursued a Bolshevik policy in the revolution of 1925-1927 would surely have come to power. But it is pitiful Philistinism to maintain that this possibility was entirely out of the question. The mass movement of workers and peasants was absolutely sufficient for it, as was also the collapse of the ruling classes. The national bourgeoisie sent its Chiang Kai-sheks and Wang Chin-weis to Moscow, and through its Hu Han-mins was knocking at the door of the Comintern; precisely because it was hopelessly weak in face of the revolutionary masses, it realised its weakness and sought to insure itself somehow. Neither the workers nor the peasants would have followed the national bourgeoisie if we ourselves
