The united front strategy was developed in the era immediately after the Russian Revolution as a tool for revolutionaries to win over in and through struggle the majority of the working class, which still held reformist views, to a revolutionary perspective. The strategy entailed revolutionaries proposing joint struggles with reformist working-class organizations for purposes of immediate demands beneficial to the class as a whole. In a united struggle, revolutionaries could prove in practice the superiority of a their perspective and the limitations of the reformists. There are obviously huge differences between that time, when socialist revolution was a real, near-term possibility, and today, but the method at the heart of the united front is still relevant.
