  • To what extent was the Communist Party ideologically divided in the period 1924-28?
    • New Economic Policy - BIG DIVISIONS
      • Bukharin wanted to keep the NEP - it was providing food   and work for the proletariat - wanted to create an alliance with peasants and workers. - also allowed peasants to make money on free market (ECONOMY GROW WITH NEP)
        • SOCIALISM AT 'SNAIL PACE' - alliance of worker & peasants disrupted with taxes. industry will grow, but slowly.
        • STALIN AGREED WITH BUKHARIN - that NEP was good but more concerned with industrilatsation
          • SOCIALISM AT 'SNAIL PACE' - alliance of worker & peasants disrupted with taxes. industry will grow, but slowly.
          • STALIN NOT INVOLVED IN DEBATE OF NEP - meant he could win support from both parties!
      • Trotsky wanted to ABOLISH the NEP - hated that much of the industry wasnt under the gov control ALSO that communism wasnt wide spread & wanted to end inequality with kulacks and peasants WANTED COLLECTIVE FARMING
        • WANTED A FULLY SOCIALIST PARTY - NEP was a compromise fo capitalism - trostky did not want this! he wanted to impose a 'dictorship industry' (meant imposing high taxes on peasants to fund indutrilisation)
      • STALIN NOT INVOLVED IN DEBATE OF NEP - meant he could win support from both parties!
    • WORLD REVOLUTION?
      • TROSTKY -  permanent revolution, wanted other countries to provide resources to fund socialism.
      • BUKHARIN - 'socialism in one country' (BACKED BY STALIN) thought this was view Lenin held. thought it would be successful over alliance wit workers & peasants. - appealing as it played Russian nationalism
    • FUTURE REVOLUTION?
      • TROTSKY - wanted party beauracy (lenin critical of this)
      • STALIN shared fear of seeing trostky as potential dictator - like french revolution which lenin did not like.
