From left to right: Jean van Heijenoort, Albert Goldman, Trotsky, Sedova, Jan Frankel. Mexico, 1937


A contradiction in Trotsky’s policy: reform of a degenerated workers’ state vs. destruction of the old party and proclaiming the course to build a new one, in 1933. And he was aware of the contradiction.

The party, or the International organization, is essentially the state.
