(from Communist Voice, vol. 10, #2, #34, August 25, 2004)
About working class trends in literature: Trotsky's exaggeration of the struggle against Proletcult; his theory that there supposedly can't be working class art; working class art and literature exists!; Trotsky's fawning on the bourgeois intelligentsia.
Trotsky vs. dialectics: he recognizes materialism in theory, but overlooks it in practice; Trotskyist difficulty in recognizing internal contradictions; their failure to appreciate the importance of intermediate forces and situations; Trotsky vs. "algebraic" formulas.
