Someone on Reddit pointed this out: "Duncan is incorrect about the Bolsheviks in the Duma elections of 1907. They actively participated, won 3 of the 6 RSDLP seats. Lenin explained the elections were an important tool for popularizing the revolutionary Bolshevik program with the workers, as opposed to the Mensheviks (called "Liquidators") who favored a more symbolic, less aggressive approach." Someone else provided some primary sources: https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1906/jan/00.htm https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1906/may/10.htm https://resistantstrain.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/battle-no-6.pdf It's probably just nitpicking, but what is the point of talking about Lenin if you're not going to nitpick? People have been debating his legacy for a century, and they won't stop any time soon. https://www.reddit.com/r/RevolutionsPodcast/comments/l46mvt/the_coup_of_1907/
