Abstract

The social and political pressures that caused the breakup of the Brazilian left during the first government of Lula and the Workers' party raised strategic questions on an international level for all anticapitalist movements. When grassroots labor and popular parties take power, should the socialist forces be on the side of government or in opposition? Similar challenges presented themselves 100 years ago, although of course with numerous differences, in Germany for the left of Rosa Luxemburg and the Social Democratic party and in Russia for Lenin and the Bolsheviks, when the problems were first to separate themselves from the Second International and then to identify themselves with respect to the governments of Ebert/Scheidermann in Berlin and Kerensky in Petrograd.
