What basis would the ICC envision as the foundation of any future world party of the proletariat? Obviously such a formation could not come about mechanically through the schemes of one or another socialist group. It would necessarily entail the coming together of several groups, many of which may only have formed in the immediate situation which led to the reformation of the party, and which may not be entirely clear on various questions. There may be some groups who still have illusions in 'revolutionary parliamentarianism' or reconquering the trade unions. Following the experience of the Communist International, there will also probably be various anarchist and syndicalist groups formed as a reaction against the opportunism of Social-Democracy, Official Communism and Trotskyism. How would it be possible to avoid the party sliding into various fatal errors whilst uniting all revolutionary elements under a common banner?
