No, you don,t get it! Try reading the very first page of the TP. It is
called "The Objective Prerequisites for a Socialist Revolution"..
IT ends up like this!
"All talk to the effect that historical conditions have not yet 'ripened'
for socialism is the product of ignorance or concious deception. The
objective prerequisites for the proletarian revolution have not only
'ripened'; they have begun to get some what rotten..."The historical crisis
of mankind is reduced to the crisis of the revolutionary leadership."
But for our fake Trotskyists Phillips arguements are in reality anti-marxist
and anti-Trotskyist. In fact a new slogan shall now be brought to the list.
"Trotskyist in name, Mensheviks in deed!"
That is the bottom line of the Militant group and the USec liquidationist
politics they stand for..
