Neither the WWP nor the PSL can be remotely accused of that sort of thing. As most of the claims of Trotskyists are indistinguishable from other anti-communists, they go a long way into refuting Trotskyist claims about the USSR and Stalin. Historic issues were at stake: not least whether the revolutionary programme was a utopia, and whether Stalinism or even social democracy could perform the historic tasks of social revolution. Also, far from trying to force a split, Trotsky did everything possible to avoid one, including trying to persuade the minority around Max Shachtman and James Burnham to express their views in party publications – provided they did not claim this was the line of the SWP or act against this line.

Trotsky’s reason for believing the Left Opposition could “switch the points” in Germany in 1931 was related to the acuteness of the crisis, the rise of Hitler, the fact that millions of German Communists and Social Democrats knew Trotsky was the organiser of the October Revolution and that the Left Opposition was arguing for the antifascist united front, which many of them already realised was vital. However that may be these matters cannot be finally resolved until the shooting starts and that is a ways away. Neither the WWP nor the PSL is guilty of either of those things. Fortunately, it was a harrowing reality the SWP did not face; unfortunately, they divided their forces over it…”. Stalin on the other hand, saw the party itself as a means to promote his won interests and as a tool for the control of the bureaucracy. Trotsky argued “a sharp axe can hew heavy beams”, by which he meant objectively vital slogans argued for skilfully, even by a relatively small nucleus of cadres, can cut through the obstruction of mass bureaucratic parties. In 1956 they gave the bourgeois SLFP government “responsive co-operation” and in 1960 they offered Simaravo Bandaranaike’s Sinhala chauvinist regime “critical support”.

Pham Binh entitles his critique “Trotskyism”, but in fact it would be more accurate if it were called “The Trotskyists” since he hardly criticises the main ideas or practice of Leon Trotsky. The Leninist explanation is that both the false socialist parties and the false communist parties are a result of revisionism, of the influence of bourgeois ideas on the workers movement. So… I am sure neither party is perfect, but it seems to me that both of them have largely, if not completely, shucked off their Trotskyist past. In his speech titled “On Lenin’s Final Struggle against Bureaucratization” He quotes Lenin saying, “Vladimir Ilyich writes about our state machine that it is neither more nor less than very similar to the Tsarist state machine, anointed, as they say, colored in the Soviet style, but if you examine it, it is the same old bureaucratic machine.” Trotsky hoped and saw as Lenin did that the Party itself could hold off this bureaucratization, and develop a new state machinery in coordination with the Soviets which would fed information for the formulation of the plan after the end of the NEP. During the crucial opportunities to make a breakthrough from small groups it is largely the centrist deviations and distortions of the Marxist programme by these propaganda societies that have blocked the route to growth, not the insistence that acceptance of this programme and agreement to fight for it form the basis for membership.

Here it is because the pressure from the ruling capitalist classes is intense and these three erroneous doctrines are a kind of “Pandering” to the US rulers: “we are the good communists the others are bad communists.” These types don’t realize that as far as the caps are concerned there are no good communists and they will kill them all when they get the chance – if we don’t get them first.
