Possible answers:

• Bernstein is saying that the practical accomplishments of better living conditions for proletariats and the dominance of the current democratic political system by the working class are more important to Bernstein than the achievement of a proletariat revolution and the establishment of a society without private property.

• He also believes that the conquest of political power and the seizure of the property of capitalists are not ends in and of themselves, and that the real purpose of the socialist movement is to accomplish certain aims in improving the economic lives of the working class and in securing the working class’ influence on the existing political system.

Q. Why would some of Marx’s followers have considered Bernstein a virtual traitor to the socialist cause?
