Amadeo Bordiga

Bordiga versus Pannekoek - Antagonism

Texto que trata da questão da relação contraditória entre os revolucionários - que são uma pequena minoria, quer queiram quer não - e o restante do proletariado. Contradição que não é superada trocando nomes, por exemplo, nomeando-se, no lugar de "partido", como "movimento", "organização autônoma", "rede", "federação", ou até "não-organização". Para tratar essa questão, o texto analisa as obras de Amadeo Bordiga e Anton Pannekoek, que, ao expressarem as lutas de classes de seus tempos e lugares, paradigmaticamente apreenderam, cada um, os dois polos dessa contradição, levando a teorização desses polos até o fim de suas consequências.

Here, for the first time in English, is Camatte’s introduction to the 1974 edition of Bordiga’s, and the Italian Left’s, long study on the nature of the Russian revolution. Camatte provides a very brief outline of the perspective that Bordiga took on in order to answer this question. Camatte also provides his own commentaries on the nature of capital today, not all of which we fully agree with.

Dialogue with Stalin - Amadeo Bordiga

Dialogue with Stalin, Amadeo Bordiga, 1952

In the 1950s, the International Communist Party undertook a world-historic task: unravelling the Russian enigma. Through a series of articles they attempted to grapple with the nature of the Russian revolution. We present to you for the first time Bordiga’s “Dialogue with Stalin”. A one way conversation with Stalin and his “Economic Problems of the USSR”. Through a careful textual analysis, reference to Marx and Engels and the Marxist method, Bordiga systematically reveals what is left unsaid but implied, by the admissions of the Stalinist bureaucracy: That capitalism had triumphed over the revolution.
