Bordiga does say that the Proletarian state should be lead by the revolutionary party, but that doesn't mean he's against structures like the councils where the whole class asserts its dominance.
This is a massive contradiction, and through that very quote it's blatantly obvious. Lenin and the Bolsheviks destroyed all power in the soviets as soon as it became convenient to do so. A dictatorship of party and a dictatorship of class is completely incompatible.
your assumption that it will lead to bureaucracy is I assume dependent on some metaphysical belief in "human nature" and how it tends to corruption and greed
I'm telling you it will lead to bureaucracy because it's the only logistically possible way a party dictatorship can survive, both militarily and if it wants to centrally plan an economy.
The Bolsheviks did what they did because it was necessary to hold onto power, and they wanted to hold on to power not because they were power hungry or greedy, but because they genuinely believed in their cause. No one is so cynical to think even Stalin did everything for personal gain.
mainly you think like a liberal, from that stems your support for democracy understandably.
And you think like an idealist, from that stems your support for party despotism.
These superstitions about "human nature" were ridiculed by Marx a long time ago when he wrote in a short, pithy sentence: Monsieur Proudhon ignores that all history is nothing but a continuous transformation of human nature.
Wow you're really getting into this strawman argument.
it isn't a number of fixed individuals. as he put it
Does it matter to the workers if their dictators change every so often, it certainly doesn't now. And yes, he's literally advocating for left-elitism, sometimes he even starts to sound like Burke.
what matters to bordiga is the party program.
Suddenly the question of the dictatorship of the proletariat has nothing to do with the actual power of the working class, but with the magic words written on a pamphlet.
the party are just the most advanced part of the proletariat
this is the biggest meme I've ever heard.
*whether they are grouped into a formal party or not*, who are most conscious of the historical mission of the proletariat.
You're literally just using the abstraction of the most advanced part of the proletariat to justify the rule of the formal party. Fuck off.
this party can't be seperated from the calss, it has a dialectical relationship to it, it is an revolutionary *organ* of the class.
You know, except for all the times that it openly betrayed the working class's interest and destroyed institutions of its power.
if the formal party abandons that historical mission, it is no longer the real party.
<if that real party does something I don't like it wasn't real organic centralism.
when the mass movement degenerates, formal parties degenerate too.
<it wasn't the Bolshevik's fault, it was the masses' fault!!
the proletarian state could not sustain itself as it governs a capitalist system
There was never a proletariat state, they destroyed all proletarian power in the very act of creating a one party state, all in the name of revolution and logistics.
The problem with the Russian revolution is that it was occurring in a backwater pre-capitalist economy which needed to industrialize beyond all else. The necessity to do so contradicted proletarian power and so it was crushed. I'm not asking you to try to judge the russian revolution by some ideal, I'm telling you your ideal blatantly contradicts the reality, that organic centralism in the same situation would have just as easily created the bureaucracy and potential for consolidation that lead to Stalin. I'm telling you, that if you want to see actual proletarian power in action, you WILL see disagreements, and you will see the free thought and you will need all the institutions that make such disagreements possible.
The word democracy, in the context of ancient athens, literally meant the rule of the poor. They did this without any concept of liberalism, and the ideology of this democracy was that of freedom and dignity. That was the ideology of working class power.
Rosa Luxemburg was a liberal
