‘Neither workerphilia nor workerphobia’

I have recently re-read this particular essay by Lars Lih and revisited the debate between Lars Lih and John Marot (among a few other things) – so I wanted to post a link to this text. Enjoy!

In the essay presented below, I describe a consensus view shared among a variety of revolutionary Social Democrats (Lenin, Bogdanov, Kautsky), one that persisted over a rapidly changing political environment (pre-1905, 1905 revolution, post-1905), and one that was equally opposed to one-sided extremes (neither workerphilia nor workerphobia).
