Adolfo attacks Gina and her ideas of a "cutural revolution" to get a jump on
the capitalist roaders or whatever. I will not go into Ginas ideas as she
has gone off line.

But Aldolfo,s line i find extremely interesting. It is the classical line of
the mensheviks between February and October of 1917. After the siezure of
power the mensheviks wanted to hand over the power to the "national"
bourgeoisie". They wanted to carry out the "democratic" revolution in other
words a bourgeois revolution and behead the proletariat there revolution.
Lenins line counter posed this with "all power to the Soviets" and a
dictatorship of the proletariat.

I just can,t see the PCP handing over power to the "national" bougeoisie
after and armed rebellion takes power and a dictatorship of the proletariat
is installed. It was the deviding line between the Bolsheviks and the
Mensheviks. So why is Aldolfo clearly staking out a Menshevik line in the
future for Peru?

Gina who at least wants to get a handle on the class enemies who she
realises are the enemy. However Aldolfo even before taking power is offering
the bourgeoisie posts in the government..

Ever since i came on this list i said that line of the PCP presented by
Aldolfo means making a deal!  A deal with the "national bougeoisie" means
stabbing the revolution in the back. The dictatorship of the proletariat is
just that. It surpresses that counter-revolutionary bourgeoisie in a period
of tranforming the society from capitalist to socialist and finally
communist norms. You can not mix the two and be a Leninist!
