Arm the hundred? I don't know where you're going off with that. Which is worse- one bourgeois with a gun or a hundred mobsters with a gun?

I love this, I wish I had a T-shirt like that.
And it is true what it is said, if you have the right speech and enthusiasm to the people, they will follow you and believe in and you. But what you say, must also be done. Empty words, would never win.

That, in my opinion, is a true statement.

Applies on how the borgousie controls people.
I wish this guy was alive... or a new person like him showed up.

Although I wish he was alive, too, it would be hard to believe there would ever be anyone as awesome as him :)
And I don't even like politics.

Hehehehe, it is interestin' to know a Lenin appreciator that is NOT into politics.
And yes. I think that, unlike Che Guevara (wich was also awesome, but was more of a legend), he managed to combine both the "legendary" part with his real life deeds.
You will see anti-communists attackin' Stalin and Mao often, but only a few of them have a argument against Lenin - and even so, they are absurd.

Actually, not been interested in politics is an advantage for me when I find articles about Castro, Lenin or Guevara on the Internet. The naive joyousness of discovering a hidden world is always more pleasant than searching something about which you already know a bit (at least I think so).
I agree with you. I read on Wiki that poor man sometimes worked 16 hours a day, and he even did so when he was sick. I really respect this, and the fact that, unlike Stalin, his purpose was to build a fair society. I also love his written piece/ declaration (I don't know, and although I could care less, I could also care more about it) about Jews as a part of the community. It is nice that, in a Anti-Semitic society, he DID consider Jewish population to be at the same level with the Russians.
I'm glad that Stalin is often attacked; I read somewhere on dA that Lenin himself thought of him as a dangerous person. I really think that Lenin can't be really criticised with a solid argument, too. He was an influence of Che Guevara's after all :heart:

PS. I hope I didn't say anything stupid, I only did a bit of research about Lenin and Russian society in the early XXth century, and I'm quite afraid I kept telling white lies.
I also hope I haven't made any grammar mistakes. ^^;

Nah, you didn't say anythin' stupid.
And yes: Communism IS about equality of rights. No matter culture, "race" (so far, we only know ONE race: Human, I don't find colour or traces as "race") or beliefs. So, Lenin did nothin' more than try his best to enforce that. Wish he lived longer...
Stalin was a necessary evil: He was a inspirational leader in times of war, my russian uncle says. But when he tried to resign (accordin' to him, he tried twice), people should had let him go.

Suddenly, I feel like I seriously want to study politics and history.
Thank you.

And, honestly, I really hope the contemporary Communist society will change when I grow up. It used to be so cool; now, people are afraid of even thinking about standing up for their rights.

Thank you again :hug:

Exactly. I think contemporary communists AND people's views on politics (so, both sides) need to change. Communists nowdays are seen (and sometimes ARE) corrupt, don't believe truly in their ideals or too lost on stupid infights to prove wich of their "messiahs" (Stalin, Mao, etc) are right or wrong (I am not sayin' ALL are), when communism should be all about UNION and COMRADESHIP. They shouldn't forget communist's objective is the same, no matter thier influence.
And, on other hand, people are afraid to claim their rights or, like here in my country, just too lazy to do so.
Politics IS somethin' interestin' to research, but can be frustratin' at times.

About the Messiah thing, I guess we're actually talking about two opposing things: the real communism, in its glorious purity, and the corrupt communism during Stalin's leadership, and Putin's etc. (again, please remind me if I made any mistakes- I don't study Russian history at school, and, last year, when we studied Modern and Contemporary history, our teacher almost forgot about Russia.) ^^;
You're quite right. This newer communism doesn't even deserve to be named the same way as Marx and Engel's ideas of the utopian society.
WHOA. I didn't know that happened in Brazil.
Yes. I'll try to learn more politics. :D

i think this image will explain the relation of the bourgouise and the military, those who hold the arms: [link]

We do require a Leninist to come. The people have lost faith, and we need a man or woman to rise from obscurity and energize the proletariat with renewed passion.

Exactly.
I don't mean a Lenist, I mean someone who was a natural leader like him, to rise. Many people have the right ideas, but don't have the charisma and personality Lenin had, a personality good enough to move the people.

So true. it is one of the ways the bourgouise have kepp their dominance on the population, Which leaves us to wonder how can we prevent this one man from controlling the hundred. Do we disarm the one, or arm the hundred? personaly, i prefer the latter.
