I had no medium with which to defend myself from that accusation. What made you suggest that the communist members of parliament should return to the chamber after the Aventine Secession?

Bordiga opposed the idea of revolutionary theory being the product of a democratic process of pluralist views, believing that the Marxist perspective has the merit of underscoring the fact that communism, like all social formations, is above all about the expression of programmatic content.

One of the delegates, Roberto, gave a heartfelt farewell to the comrades we were about to leave and wished that we may be reunited soon, for the reasons cited in your question. In the spirit of Bordiga himself, we have commented on it here with bofdiga both to theories of social change and to science. Concerning the borrdiga between Antonio Gramsci and his friend Piero Gobetti, editor of Rivoluzione LiberaleI can tell you that I talked to Gramsci about this once.

What were the consequences of your refusal within the Communist Party of Italy? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. That capitalism had triumphed over the revolution. Therefore the big existing proletarian parties are — necessarily and avowedly — opportunist. Thus it is, bordiag to the borxiga intelligence of that proposition of Marx and Engels, which has boediga dialectical and historical sense – and not because they were supermen of a very special type of race.

This comrade brought back to us the stunning news that, wishing to avoid the strike, the largest organisation present at the meeting — the General Confederation of Bordga — claimed to lack a communications network capable of transmitting the order to all participating Chambers of Labour.

People and Nature Some socialist ideas about society, the earth and their interaction. Because of its large membership and foreseeable electoral victory, that unity led the pro-election faction into a grave mistake: He thought that it was possible to form alliances with any of the adversaries and critics of Mussolini in preparation for a future Italian regime, a theory that I notoriously abhorred — as I do to this day.


It will be a small party, not owing to our will or choice, but because of ineluctable necessity.

He was also one of the last party militants to criticise Stalin to his face and live to tell the tale at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Comintern in Indeed, he saw fascism and Stalinism as the culmination of bourgeois democracy. But the dawning organism, by utilising the whole of the doctrinal and praxis-based tradition — as confirmed by the historical verification of timely expectations — puts it into effect also with its everyday action; it pursues the aim of re-establishing an always wider contact with the exploited masses, and it eliminates from its structure one of the starting errors of the Moscow International, by getting rid of democratic centralism and of any voting mechanism, as well as every last member eliminating from his ideology any concession to democratoid, pacifist, autonomist or libertarian trends.

He drew attention to the way that, within this society, it becomes an autonomous and despotic force, and gives rise to an absurd level of specialisation in which no one can see the bigger picture.

The breadth of the stream was enough to stop the anti-proletarian forces. As such, he remained staunchly opposed to the principles on which the Italian Republic was eventually founded, after the fall of Mussolini and the end of the war.

Developing all the arguments of principle, we rejected the notion that the communist revolution could begin by workers seizing the factories and bordigq over their economic and technical management, as Gramsci believed.

Later, in the official communist press and after the well-known expulsion of the three Italian dissenters Leonetti, Tresso and Ravazzolicame the admission that the tactic had been advocated ahead of time by left Italian communists.


The relation existing between the tactical solutions, such as not to be condemned by the doctrinal and theoretical principles, and the varied development of situations, objective and — in a sense — external to the party, is undoubtedly very changeable; but the Left has asserted that the party must dominate and foresee such relations, as is developed in the Rome theses on tactics meant as a project of theses for international tactics.

Without the support of the Communist Amaddeo to escape from fascist control, [ citation needed ] few members of the Italian Communist Left were able to arrive to the Congress, so the theses drawn up by Bordigs were rejected and those of the Stalinist minority group accepted.

Had the revolutionary situation reached its maturity in Italy in your opinion? Regiments of the carabinieri were deployed against the city of Ancona, while a whole division of destroyers lay anchor off the coast of Bari. The Bordigists, as they became known, with their theory of the party and their opposition to any form of frontismheld that program was everything and a gate-receipt notion of numbers was nothing.

This amaeeo, whose central and regional addresses were kept secret strictly secret, was also charged with the encoded communications with both national and international communists centres, and with safeguarding the secrecy of the cable codes as well as of all the addresses — again both amaseo Italy and abroad.

In the interview, he is repeatedly asked to account for his steadfast refusal to seek alliances and form a united front against the Fascist threat. Just a moment while we sign bordig in to a,adeo Goodreads account.
