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.

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....

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.

How can anyone thinks Lenin is A Hero or something like this. He was just a garbage, it wasn't his plan, it was Alexander's Parvus plan funded by the Germans. And Trotsky were funded by the banker Jacob Schiff and the rest of the Rothchilds.

"he created a regime that erased politics"

That is actually the exact opposite of what the people who invented the term totalitarianism say about it. Totalitarianism = politicisation of all aspects of life.

He looks like Stewie.

I'm sure you know this.

And Lenin was quite different from Pol Pot, Stalin, etc

did you know that in 1916, the Ruble was worth more than the english pound?

(Thanks to the initial non-industrial agrarian reform).

Many movements today are Marxist-Leninist, few are Stalinist.

Damn the beaurocracy, damn communism, damn capitalism and damn globalization. Damn the United States too, for being like a trap. I make good money there, but the bad part is that I'm surrounded by prats and pricks.

Too bad I don't beleive in Hell, so all of those damns are literally meaningless.
