- Political Statement
- Some objects (phenomena) are confined easily within boundaries according to logical classification, others present us with difficulties: they can be put here or there, but within a stricter relationship - nowhere. While provoking the indignation of systematizers, such transitional forms are exceptionally interesting to dialecticians, for they smash the limited boundaries of classification, revealing the real connections and consecutiveness of a living process. - Trotsky, Notebooks: 1933-1935.
- We are monopolists in the field of politics. We can't stand any competition. We can tolerate no rivals. The working class, to make the revolution, can do it only through one party and one program. This is the lesson of the Russian Revolution...Ours is the only correct program that can lead to revolution. Everything else is deception, treachery. We are monopolists in politics and we operate like monopolists. - Morris Stein, Socialist Workers Party Convention, 1944.
