An examination on the standpoints of Trotsky, Pannekoek and Bordiga.
There are too many legends about those who tried to resist, and to keep alive the revolutionary tradition during the long counter-revolution we have experienced since the beginning of the 1920's. Since theory is a necessary and indispensable part of subversion (any social movement wants to understand what it is doing), and since the Marxist tradition is the most accurate one, and in fact the only valid one, it is useful to come to terms with the tendencies represented by Trotsky, Pannekoek and Bordiga.
