The next chapter shows that while substantial philosophical differences did emerge on the Left in this period, they in fact centred on the extent to which egalitarians should aim to foster a new spirit of fellowship and social solidarity. It could be said that the revisionists neglected the importance of community and therefore ‘attacked socialist ideology at its heart’. This chapter argues that this reformulated criticism does indeed provide a useful diagnosis of the basic ideological difference between certain revisionists and other socialists in this period.
