Abstract

In 1936 J. Sen wrote to Andre Gide suggesting that ‘the time is opportune for criticism to be directed against the USSR’. Amongst his reasons was one we share:

A communist cannot refuse to examine realities, for that would be the negation of Marxism. Communists … have not the right, on the pretext of not discouraging the proletariat, to conceal from it the errors of a revolutionary experiment. On the contrary, their duty, their task is to examine the path followed by the Russian Revolution … (cit. Gide, 1937: 141–2)
