Transcript Lennin's Testament By the stability of the Central Committee, of which I spoke before, I mean measures to prevent a split, so far as such measures can be taken. Forj, oi course, the White Guard in Russkaya Mysl (I think it was S. E. Oldenburg) was right when, in the first place* in his play against Soviet Russia he banked on the hope of a split in our party, and when, in the second place, he banked -lor that split on serious disagreements in our party. Our party rests upon two classes, and for that reason its instability is possible, and if there cannot exist an agreement between such classes its fall is inevitable. In such an event it would be useless to take any measures or in general to discuss the stability of our Central Committee. In such an event no measures would prove- capable of preventing a split. But I trust that is too remote a future, and too improbable an event, to talk about. I have in mind stability as a guarantee against a split in the near future;, and I intend to examine here a series of considerations of a purely personal character. I think that the fundamental factor in the matter of stability—from this point of view—as such members of the Central Committee as Stalin and Trotsky. The relation between them constitutes, in my opinion, a big half of the danger of that split, which might be avoided, and the avoidance of which might be promoted in my opinion by raising the number of members of the Central Committee to fifty or one hundred. Comrade Stalin, having become General Secretary, has concentrated an enormous power in his hands; and I am not sure that he always knows how to use that power with sufficient caution. On the other hawty comrade Trotsky, as was proved by his struggle against the Central Committee in connection with the question of the People's Commissariat
