The Fourth International and party building II 1

In this lecture, Bensaïd covers the history of Fourth International from the post-WWII to the split, the reunification process, the Ninth World Congress and finally the Eleventh World Congress. In this part of the lecture, Bensaïd starts with a discussion of the line of argument which contends that the project of building the FI was based on a prognosis of the Second World War and its outcomes. Trotsky believed that, just like WWI, WWII would trigger a strong set of revolutions.
