> In volume 26 of LCW, there is an essay titled "Can the Bolsheviks retain state power." In this article Lenin writes:
> "We are not utopians. We know that an unskilled labourer or a      cook cannot immediately get on with the job of state      administration. In this we agree with the Cadets, with      Breshkovskaya, and with Tsereteli. We differ, however, from      these citizens in that we demand an immediate break with the      prejudiced view that only the rich, or officials chosen from      rich families, are capable of administering the state,      of performing the ordinary, everyday work of administration. We      demand that training in the work of state      administration be conducted by class-conscious workers and      soldiers and that this training be begun at once, i.e., that a       beginning be made at once in training all the working      people, all the poor, for this work."
