Summary of the Book 'A Police Patriotic Demonstration Made to Order':

In the April Theses therefore Lenin called for a struggle for a socialist program based on the independent action of the working class. Its main elements were: No Support for the Provisional government. Fight for the Soviets to take power. End the war. Confiscate the big estates. Nationalize the banks. Establish workers control of industry. Replace the police and army with a workers militia. Replace the old state bureaucracy with workers administration. Proclaim a Communist Party establish a new international. A program on these lines with the strategy and tactics also spelt out was an essential pre-requisite for the success of the October revolution. In April it was opposed by the leaders castigated by Lenin as Old Bolsheviks. However by appealing to the leading Bolsheviks at rank and file level Lenin won a majority for his ideas. The new upsurge of workers and peasants which provokes a new crisis for the Provisional government confirmed Lenins position in a few stormy months. Without the April Theses 1917 would have ended quite differently. Underlying Lenins strategy and tactics was a clear perspective. This provided a clear guide to action during the ebbs and flows of the revolution. On the other hand it was precisely because they were working on the basis of a confused perspective derived from a misinterpretation of Lenins previous position that the Old Bolsheviks adopted a policy which prefigured the disastrous Popular Frontism of the Stalinist leaders in the 1930s and since.
