User: What was the main difference between the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks? A. the political and economic groups they belonged to B. the Bolsheviks representing the upper and middle classes C. the Mensheviks representing the upper and middle classes D. their beliefs about the means for bringing about political change

Weegy: he main difference was that the Bolsheviks revised Marxist doctrine and the Mensheviks didn't. The main revisions were: 1) Marx claimed that history was marked by changed in the economic relationships of the classes, i.e. [ history marched on an "inevitable" path from hunter-gatherer to slavery, to feudalism to capitalism to imperialism to socialism and finally to communism. He stated that each of these stages morphed into the next stage when they were fully mature and through a process he called class struggle. Lenin believed that, although Russia had only just shaken off feudalism, and was barely capitalist (although it was imperialist) this stage could be "telescoped" - shortened - allowing for a socialist revolution. 2) His other major revision was that Marx claimed that the peasantry was always conservative and would support the existing regime; the workers would be the motor of the socialist revolution. Lenin realised that because in Russia the working class was so small then the peasants also had to be part of the socialist revolution. The Mensheviks were "gradualists" believing that as the capitalist revolution had only just begun in Russia, they should work within a capitalist political system until the working class was large enough to instigate a gradual move towards communism. They also agreed with Marx about the peasantry - believing that they would be too conservative to take part in the socialist revolution. ]
