Sidney: The Workers' Party of Australia, 1936. — 14 p.

And of the plans recently put forward, none appears so simple, so plausible, so effective as the one now so vociferously advanced by the Stalinist parties, following the 7th Congress of the Communist International, for virtually all the countries of the globe. But only appears!
