Perspective … 4

Communist Experience … III

Certainly Bolsheviks did not invent violence. Violence has been part of human history since time immemorial. It has been part of our progress through millions of years of evolution.

Communist Experience … II

In the previous post I mentioned that, Lenin in his attempt “to construct the socialist order” collided with Marx’s vision from day one.  Lenin’s speech to the congress of soviets was concurrent with military operations of the Bolsheviks to take control of vital nerve centers of the state.

Communist Experience … I

“We shall now proceed to construct the socialist order.” This was the opening of Lenin’s speech to the congress of soviets in October 1917 (November in Gregorian calendar) [History of the Russian Revolution, Leon Trotsky, Haymarket Books p 854].  Lenin was out of his hiding putting his final touches to the Bolsheviks seizure of power.  Lenin and his party did not participate in the Kerensky’s government which included the rest of the political spectrum of the February 1917 revolution.

Perspective … 1

I have not blogged for some time.  My mind has been busy in how I should prepare and present the ideas that I have developed during the last several years.  My first impulse was to hide in a corner and compose those ideas into a book.  I began to take a stab at it.  It did not take long to come to my senses.  In today’s world the solitary path of book writing as a form of dissemination of ideas is unnecessarily long and arduous.  I think I need to try to articulate my ideas through the Internet.  To begin with I will use my blog with a series of short articles.  I will post more often than before and I appreciate your feedbacks.
