is this pamphlet online in English?

I don't seem to find this pamphlet online in English.

As regards mcolome's comment, there are major differences between Stalin and Trotsky, for instance precisely about the above-mentoned Chinese question.

Also, I would say there are even not so "smal" differences between the consolidated state power of Stalin and Mao. To my knowledge there was no comparabe massacre in Mao's China like on the scale of the 1937-38 Stalinist terror against the own revolutionary party.

I don't think the scale of a

I don't think the scale of a massacre is any kind of meaningful difference. It's more important that in the Cultural Revolution the main massacre wasn't executed in a planned way and carried out by trained and well organized repressive organs, it was more a pogromist chaos which Map was able to more or less control to his own means. I don't have any important insight in the meaning of this, but it's possible that it sheds some light in the difference between a State emerged from the defeat of a proletarian revolution and a stalinist State emerged from a bourgeois conflict. But a discussion about numbers doesn't seem very productive.

on Chinese question



You're saying that socialism was impossible in a backward country like China (and seem to think that Stalin thought the opposite), but would not this position lead to support of Stalin's policy of working with bourgeois parties like the KMT (since the socialist revolution was not on the agenda in your view)?

huh?

Quote:
Trotsky theory of the permanent revolution and most Bolsheviks including Stalin adopted

Nope, Stalin didn't adopt the theory of permanent revolution. This is pretty uncontroversial.

Someone tell me  What is

Someone tell me  What is difference of Trotsky theory of the permanent revolution with Marx concept?

Bolsheviks was the leftwing of second international so you could say second international was oppose to concept of Marx and Marx concept of  socialism was post capitalist society. Therefore Marx method is wrong

Some explanations about the comments

Some explanations about the comments of this thread:

  1. Those who have read the pamphlet, see that the pamphlet is critical of Trotsky's position in this context.
  2. Comparing Stalin (Communist Murderer) with Trotsky is similar to comparing Hitler with Pannekoek. Both Trotsky and Pannekoek were great revolutionaries who made big mistakes special in later parts of their lives, but both died as revolutionaries.
  3. In contrast to Trotsky, Trotskyism belongs to the left of capital.
  4. On other things, I comment on the correct thread.

Hello, mcolome, do you

Hello, mcolome, do you consider yourself a Marxist? So you could give a Marxist critique of Trotsky.

What class did Trotsky represent? Because accusing someone of "despotism" is meaningless from a Marxist point of view: Communists are for dictatorship, the question is which class it is. You mean that Trotsky was a representative of capitalists or big landowners? Or a part of them only?

When you accuse Trotsky of killing "anarchists", you mean he was mean? You know, "anarchism" is a very vague word and there were "anarchists" in the Red Army and the White Guards. After all, we have statist anarchists, militarist anarchists, democratic anarchists, terrorist anarchists, anarchist looters and even Stalinist anarchists.

You look for bad guys to explain the story: this is historical Manichaeism, not historical Materialism.

Is it online at all?

If it is not online in English, does it at all exist in English print? Or if not, is it at least online in Farsi (which people can put into Google-translate)? Otherwise there is no point to announce/advertise this pamphlet here.

Well, it's nice to get a reminder every now and then that IV exists and is active. And I don't think it does any real harm.
