Michael, I don't agree with this. The German left had millions of members 
in the 1920s but was divided along the very same ultraleft/reformist lines 
as represented in the competing coalitions. I guess you can say that the 
German left was weak because it had lost its way politically but on raw 
numbers, you don't get much more powerful than the CP and SP combined 
forces. Trouble was, of course, they wouldn't combine.
