Have to disagree here. The Soviets organized themselves in 1905, Trotsky  and 
Lenin saw the opportunity provided by their formation and thereafter sought  
to exert influence over them. Too, in 1917 Lenin advocated the leadership of 
the  Party as a counter to the Provisional Government, until Trotsky was able 
to  persuade him that the Soviets should take the lead.
