Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Of course Lenin believed in the power of the working class, whether they were organised in soviets, factory committees or trade unions. He believed in the power of a government class over soviets, he was for power of a party over people, what he did. He lied when he was suddenly telling the countra...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

You are arguing a Menshevik position here (the same position that the Bolsheviks took prior to Lenin's return to Russia in April 1917), The problem that you have is that this position (the idea that there had to be a long period of capitalism before the creation for socialism could be put on the ag...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

The Bolsheviks, along with the other socialist parties, were demanding a Constituent Assembly BEFORE the October revolution. The Provisional Government refused to let this happen because they wanted to continue the war and did not want to address the question of land reform. But once the revolution...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

It was the bolsheviks who wanted a Constituant Assembly , they had it 2 times, and each time they were not elected, the Socialists won.

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Do you mean the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly here? Because democracy in the soviets definitely did continue after the October revolution. Yes, and those soviets, of all Russia (at least), voted for a bourgeois-like State (I'm not pleased to write that) in very end 1917, not for a dictato...

The Cheka was abolished by the Soviet government in February 1922. It was replaced by the GPU but the powers of the Cheka were not transferred to it. The GPU was only concerned with political cases and it did not have the power to sentence or execute prisoners. It was only after Lenin had died (in ...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

I am not sure which "paper" you are referring to. The papers of the written laws, useless as the true law was the Cheka, which had full rights to do as they wanted if it was not displaesing the Party. Lenin was an orthodox Marxists, and Marxism is the theory of working class self-emancipa...

Trotsky wants to make us believe he might alone have decided this coup. No, I think he is saying the opposite. Read again what I exactly quoted and wrote. Trotsky wrote "nor I", doing like he might be like Lenin. He wants us to imagine there was a chance he might be a lenin. Stalin really...

not because there is NM death spiral where one side has 157 NM and the other 67 NM with no mechanism for balancing... However that's almost what happened, but mainly due to Moscow*, not Franquists.
