The article has been finished two days before the Chilean generals took over. The author begins with an attack on certain dogmatic positions, rightist and leftist, which don't allow to analize or even to understand the origins and characteristics of the growing class struggle in Chile. Class struggle is seen as a learning process in which certain relations — as f. e. the relation between legality and revolution or between economic and political development — are more complicated than is normally assumed. Indicating the most important stages of the Chilean process in the last three years, the author comes to some conclusions that could be generalized: Imperialism and bourgeoisie always use any means to stop working class from gaining even part of economic and political power. Class struggle is not hindered but deepened when revolutionary parties dominate a coalition government in a democratic system. And finally, there are no bureaucratic solutions for conflicts in a situation of open class struggle.
