My previous post on this topic contained an error.  Where I wrote:

The key element we identified was socialist democracy, and the
resolute defence and extension of bourgeois democracy prior to the
revolution.

I  should have written:
The key element we identified was socialist democracy, and the
resolute defence and extension of bourgeois _democratic rights_ prior to
the revolution.

Even that isn't quite right, as the key bourgeois democratic right is of
course the right to own private property...
