This week, Matt and Cameron dive into Love of the Worker Bees by Alexandra Kollontai, a major figure of early Soviet Union Bolshevik politics. Though she would later fall out of favor due to her outspoken opposition to the changing Bolshevik party, Kollontai remained a USSR official, Marxist feminist theorist, and author until her death. I know, I know, more Soviet political theory—some day you will find this as interesting as we do. It’s just a matter of time.
Major themes: Adultery, *Our* kid, New Economic Policy = Capitalism?
