Transcript has a tremendous appetite, but it is necessary to bring the workers back, in part, to private factories, partly to government factories, which will probably be in condition of severest competition with private capital. This means that a sharp worsening of the conditions of the working class will take place. In the villages-, the struggle of the poor and middle peasants will begin again. And then to hold power, a strong government will be needed, independently of what forms it will have.'" This must have been strong medicine even to a Trotskyite like Radek. So, to sweeten the pill, Trotsky explained to Radek further: "If you want historical analogies, said Trotsky, take that of Napoleon I. Napoleon's government was not restoration; the restoration came latter. But this government was an attempt to preserve the chief gains of the revolution, to preserve everything possible from the revolution." Incredible? Hard to believe that Trotsky would think of himself as another Napoleon, plotting with fascism "to preserve everything possible from the revolution"? Not at all. Ten years, or so, ago, Trotsky declared that he was preparing himself for the role of Clemenceau (war premier of France), to save the Soviet Union when the enemy was at the gates of Moscow. And for this he had to overthrow the "Stalin government" which, according to himself, was leading the country to defeat. The present Napoleon scheme of Trotsky is a development and variation of the old Clemenceau scheme. Jl
