"The Daily Worker"

March 1956
New Republic;3/26/56, Vol. 134 Issue 13, p6
The article presents information on the reaction of several workers of the periodical "The Daily Worker," to the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party. Alan Max, the Daily Worker's leading political commentator, writes that the Congress "jolted" him and other American Marxists." Max acknowledges that Communists "went over board" defending Joseph Stalin's infallibility, the lack of civil liberties in the Soviet Union and its cultural authoritarianism. The reaction of the American Communist movement to the 20th Congress is noteworthy not because it will have any significant political influence here, but because it is symptomatic of what may be happening in Communist ranks all over the world, including the Soviet Union.
