Title: cardinal question

ZACK - March 24, 2009 04:34 PM (GMT)
A cardinal question in communist usage means a question that is so decisive that a wrong answer to the question puts you on the wrong side of the fence. Historically, recognition of the need for a revolutionary communist party, the need for the dictatorship of the proletariat and the necessity for the overthrow of the bourgeois state were taken as “cardinal questions” of this kind — as the historically established dividing lines between Marxism and revisionism i.e. counterrevolutionary bourgeois politics disguised as communism.
