The inner doubts of the opposition concerned the destination of the course which Russia had followed since 1923. Some were anxious lest the course were wrongly set to the map and to the compass, others lest progress on the course were too slow; and since some took the bearings differently from others, while some even used a map which was differently drawn, discussion inclined to be complex and diffuse.
