John Sendy’s article, “Democracy and the Communist Party” (ALR No 1) was thoughtful and refreshingly candid in its treatment of a subject which has in the past notoriously been regarded as sensitive and even dangerous. My main complaint about the article is that, having opened the gate on some radical views, he was rather shy of deciding his attitude to his guests. Thus he quotes four steps to improve Party democracy proposed by K. S. Karol and adds: “These views are quoted here, not because the writer necessarily agrees with them, but because they are widely held in one form or another.”
