This chapter outlines the arguments created and challenges faced by the Communist party for a bourgeois-democratic revolution, particularly in opposition to the CNT's plans for the libertarian socialization of industry. Socialization would impinge upon the property of the middle classes, whose support the Kremlin needed for the success of its foreign policy. Hence, the Spanish Communists argued that the attempts to further the revolution at the expense of the middle classes were due to the workers' lack of political understanding, among other things. To argue along these lines in the prevailing state of revolutionary exultation was for the Communists a heavy task; for they had to contend not only with the libertarian movement, but also with the more radical members of the UGT, the Socialist party, and of the Juventudes Socialistas Unificadas (JSU).

Keywords:   bourgeois-democratic revolution, nationalization, socialization, Russia, middle classes, Communists
