Open Polemic Question

The purpose of my questions was to try and
move the debate here from what struck me as
a rut - continual debates over
a) Stalinism versus trotskyism
b) What is the correct form of the vanguard
c) What is meant by proletarian dictatorship

The problem with questions like these is that
they get you no further forward in developing
a political movement. One has to pose the questions
on which splits in the movement, when they
do occur, occur on matters of real substance
with respect to practical politics.
