Contribution to 20 th Century Political Thought “ Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners.“

Blood for Thought Lenin understood that Tsarism could only be overthrown by a revolt of the masses. He believed that they should be headed by an elite group of dedicated revolutionists and intellectuals. Lenin's convictions differed from those of populists. He later believed that instead of using the peasants for the overthrowing of Tsarism, it should be the urban proletariat who would be led by the revolutionaries. His attitude towards the development of the Soviet Union drastically shaped Russia’s progress in the 20 th century. This later shaped the development of future Leninist models.

Leninism Lenin’s major contributions to Marxism were: His analysis and condemnation of imperialism (stressing, among other things, the importance of colonial areas as the breeding ground for revolution) His concept of a revolutionary party as a highly disciplined unit The necessity of a practical revolution. Lenin combined Marxist theory with shrewd political instinct (supporting compromises of the populace to further the establishment of socialism) The suppression of any theoretical revisionism or gradualism that may destabilize the Communist cause

Revolution: Contribution to the Soviet Regime “ If Socialism can only be realized when the intellectual development of all the people permits it, then we shall not see Socialism for at least five hundred years.”

But none could master enough support to hit a nerve with the Aristocrats

Lenin’s International Influence “ Politics begin where the masses are, not where there are thousands, but where there are millions, that is where serious politics begin.“

Germany Germany supported Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution. They hoped the effort would weaken Russia's Constituent Assembly (They had been enemies in World War One Ties between the Germany, and the emerged USSR grew in Lenin’s success, and armistice between the two nations allowed for a powerful Axis aligned force in WW2 (the Nazi-Soviet Pact) Their support of the Axis broke on the advent of Germany’s betrayal and invasion of Russia’s soil

China China adopted a further doctrine of Leninism which is referred to as Mao-Leninism or simply Maoism 5 years on, following the death of Lenin, Both Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong of the emerged peoples republic of China, claimed to be the sole intellectual heirs of Lenin’s thought This brought about the Sino-Soviet split whereby the Communist interests that had bonded the two nations were shattered by Nationalist interests and political ideologies that differed to suite the political environments

U.S.A The USA become the sworn enemy of communism. With the USSR a superpower, they were in direct competition the United States With the word of Lenin Spreading, the USA geared up to engage countries that adopted a pro-communist stance. The USSR would do the same by default in their universal Communist stance President Regan declared war on the Soviet Union. This effort was shamed for lasting less than a decade, it was the centre piece of American foreign policy from the mid 1980’s The Regan Doctrine also pursued war in Soviet backed communists governments throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, while not in direct war with the nation

The Desire for a Soviet State “ Communism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country”

Why Lenin lead his cause in May 1887, when Lenin was 17 years old, his eldest brother Alexander was arrested and hanged for participating in a terrorist bomb plot threatening the life of Tsar Alexander III. His sister Anna, who was with Alexander at the time of his arrest, was banished to his family estate in the village of Kokushkino, about 40 km (25 mi.) from Kazan. This event radicalized Lenin, and his official Soviet biographies describe it as central to the revolutionary track of his life. He grew to despise the Tzardome The phrase “We will follow a different path" refers to Lenin choosing a Marxist approach to popular revolution, instead of anarchist or individualist methods. His mother mentioned this to him, and inspired Lenin to fight for a Soviet future. As Lenin became interested in Marxism, he was involved in student protests and was subsequently arrested. This gave him further time to study what had effectively become his bible, and Lenin become more and more interested in holding a revolution. He didn't want Russia to go to war He strongly disliked the monopolies that often resulted in capitalistic societites Tsar Nicholas the ii abdicated and the provincial government was relatively weak. Lenin saw a chance for change, and turned Russia into the USSR He was very concerned about creating a free universal health care system for all, the rights of women, and teaching the illiterate Russian people to read and write

The Road to Soviet Rule “ Fascism is capitalism in decay”

How Lenin Came to Power In the first World Warm the Germans knew Lenin would be the source of political and particularly military turmoil. The Germans put him on a train and sent him back to Russia. Russia Suffered a lot in the later stages of the war. The Imperial Army had not faired well at all. It had lost repeatedly to the Germans. It even had trouble against the armies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The people of Russia were ready for a change. Lenin had spread secret propoganda and organized for factories and various labor offcials to work in the subtle good of their cause. Lenin and his Marxist views were readily accepted when he arrived in Russia. The Czar was not able to contain the Marxist problem. The October Revolution pursuide, and this led to the fall of the Romanov's dynasty and the end of Imperial Russia. Lenin then set about making changes to Russia. One of the first was to withdraw from the war. This freed up all of the troops on the eastern front. The Germans were thus relieved of the 2 front war, but not in time to save their situation. Vlademir was respected by the Soviets and the international community aliike, whether or not they approved of his views. This recognition was the final stage of Lenin’s dominance over Russia.

The Source of his Power “ It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed”

Governmental Power Lenin was ideally a revolutionary democrat Democracy is rule by the majority, however, so his power as head of the USSR came from popular verdict Lenin was reputed for his personal kindness and the allegiance of his Socialist officials had him leader of the country until his death Personal kindness does not account for individual kindness and the secret police which Lenin employed had political opponents, dissenters of the regime and threats to the security of the USSR quenched at his command

Revolutionary Power the will of the majority of the workers and peasants - the overwhelming majority of the country’s population, was the source of Lenin’s Revolutionary Power. He harnessed what his philosophy dictated what was in their best interest, to offer a government that would please them Given “ a fair go” the proletariat gladly joined under the Soviet banner to give power to Lenin

Bibliography “ When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward - or go back. He who now talks about the "freedom of the press" goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism.”
