Lenin by juliusbernard Lenin by juliusbernard
Lenin was the initiator of the central drama the tragedy of our era, the rise of totalitarian states. A bookish man with a scholar's habits and a general's tactical instincts, Lenin introduced to the 20th century the practice of taking an all-embracing ideology and imposing it on an entire society rapidly and mercilessly; he created a regime that erased politics, erased historical memory, erased opposition. In his short career in power, from 1917 until his death in 1924, Lenin created a model not merely for his successor, Stalin, but for Mao, for Hitler, for Pol Pot.

it's extremely funny to listen to an amateur artist bloviating about politics.

I added the photo as a favorite, but you need to do more reading regarding Lenin ''influencing'' Hitler. Hitler hated communism, and Stalin hated Nazi facism. Besides, Mussolini was a much larger influence to Hilter, as far as 20th century people goes....

Well, the most obvious thing in the world is that you are an anti-communist. Leave us alone.

The initiator of totalitarian states and the model for Hitler? Were you drunk when you wrote that?
I also like how you threw in "imposing," as if the Russian working classes wasn't almost unanimous in their support for Lenin.

History fail.
