Example text

The strikes of the nineties represented the class struggle in embryo, but only in embryo. Taken by themselves, these strikes were simply trade union struggles, but not yet Social-Democratic struggles. , theirs was not yet Social-Democratic consciousness. In this sense, the strikes of the nineties in spite of the enormous progress they represented as compared with the "riots," remained a purely spontaneous movement. We have said that there could not yet be Social-Democratic consciousness among the workers.

The national tasks of Russian Social-Democracy are such as have never confronted any other socialist party in the world. . The role of vanguard fighter can be fulfilled only by a party that is guided by the most advanced theory. . . . The strikes of the nineties represented the class struggle in embryo, but only in embryo.
