Liquidating Lies

May 7, 2012

by Pham Binh

I have to unbend the stick yet again  since comrades in the 
Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) mischaracterize where I 
stand on parties and party-building efforts. First Mike MacNair 
claimed  I advocated a “process by which dissent is recuperated 
into the bourgeois political game” and now Ben Lewis accuses  me 
of drawing “movementist” and “liquidationist” conclusions. 
Unfortunately, Lewis cannot be right about my position against 
MacNair since Macnair acknowledged that I favor multi-tendency 
socialist parties over single-tendency “Leninist” organizations. 
If that is liquidationism, then I am as guilty of it as Lenin was 
in 1912 because he advocated  just such a model for the Russian 
Social-Democratic Party (RSDLP) at that time.
