No to Trotskyism

This is Part 2 of a summary of the major inner-Party struggles between the Bolsheviks led by Lenin, on one hand, and Trotsky and his followers and allies, on the other hand. It covers the inter-imperialist war, the 1917 revolution, and the conclusion of peace through the Brest-Litovsk treaty. Again, the various episodes during which Lenin and Trotsky directly clashed on matters of principle and policy during this period will show the falsity of claims that Trotsky and Lenin had convergent or even parallel views and positions until Lenin’s death in 1924.

It will show that the flawed theories held most dearly by Trotskyites had long been criticized by Lenin and the Bolsheviks.
