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.
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
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.
