) from .Kazan — those events transformed Lenin into a political radical, which official Soviet biographies represent as central to his assuming the revolutionary track as political life.^ The Second Congress of the RSDLP united the revolutionary Marxist organisations and set up a working-class party on the basis of the ideological, political and organisational principles worked out by Lenin.

^ In mapping out the course for a socialist revolution, Lenin took into consideration the fact that Russia had the material and socio-political requisites for it to succeed.

^ One of them, a revolutionary trend, was represented by Lenin and his supporters who received a majority of votes at the elections to the leading Party bodies, and came to be called Bolsheviks.

.Complementing these personal, emotional, and political upheavals was his matriculation, in August 1887, to the Kazan University, where he studied law and read the works of Karl Marx.^ Eventually he was allowed to study law at Kazan University.

^ Lenin was now expelled from Kazan University and so he went to St. Petersburg and studied as an external student.

^ To continue his education, Lenin decided to enroll at Kazan University's Department of Law, as he was convinced that "it is the time now to study law and political economy."

.That Marxism-derived political development involved Lenin in a student riot, and consequent arrest, in December 1887; Kazan University expelled him, the police authorities barred him from other universities, thence was under continuous police surveillance — as the brother of a known terrorist.^ On December 4, 1887, the Kazan papers carried the news of student riots in Moscow.

^ In Samara, he organised its first Marxist study group, to whose members he read a number of papers.

.Three years later, in 1890, he was permitted studies at the University of Saint Petersburg.^ Lenin was now expelled from Kazan University and so he went to St. Petersburg and studied as an external student.

Lenin resolved that problem by licencing (for a month) all workers of most factories; thus historian S.A.

.After the first stroke, Lenin dictated government papers to Nadezhda; among them was Lenin's Testament (changing the structure of the soviets), partly inspired by the 1922 Georgian Affair (Russian cultural assimilation of constituent USSR republics), and it criticized high-rank Communists, including Josef Stalin, Grigory Zinoviev, Lev Kamenev, Nikolai Bukharin, and Leon Trotsky.^ Leon Trotsky [no Lenin].

Winston Churchill, who encouraged British intervention against the Russian Revolution, in league with the White Movement, to destroy the Bolsheviks and Bolshevism, said:
"He alone could have found the way back to the causeway . . . The Russian people were left floundering in the bog. Their worst misfortune was his birth . . . their next worst his death."[85]
.Three days after his death, Petrograd was renamed Leningrad in his honour, so remaining until 1991, when the USSR dissolved, yet the administrative area remains "Leningrad Oblast". In the early 1920s, the Russian cosmism movement proved so popular that Leonid Krasin and Alexander Bogdanov proposed to cryonically preserve Lenin for future resurrection, yet, despite buying the requisite equipment, that was not done.^ At the same time - and this is to be emphasized - Leninism emerged and developed as a summation of the experience of the worldwide, and not only Russian, working-class and national-liberation and anti-colonialist movements.

Writings

Lenin the icon: A 1929 Laz language newspaper featuring Lenin's writing.
.Lenin was a prolific political theoretician and philosopher who wrote about the practical aspects of leading a proletarian revolution; he wrote pamphlets, articles, and books, without a stenographer or secretary, until prevented by illness.^ I next wrote a book about a year of Lenin’s life in Shushenskoye.
  • V. I. Lenin The Story Of His Life 28 January 2010 1:01 UTC marxists.kgprog.com [Source type: Original source]

^ Lenin on proletarian revolution and proletarian dictatorship.

^ In the autumn of 1918 he wrote The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky , in 1919 the articles A Great Beginning and Economics and Politics in the Era of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat , and in June 1920 his famous book 'Left Wing' Communism - An Infantile Disorder in which he summed up the Bolshevik experience and underscored its importance for the world communist movement.

[88] He simultaneously corresponded with comrades, allies, and friends, in Russia and world-wide. His known writings compose 54, 650-page volumes; the most influential are:
  • What is to be Done? (1903) establishes that a revolution requires a professional vanguard party.
  • Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism (1916) explains why capitalism had not collapsed, as Marx had posited, presenting the First World War as a capitalist war for land, resources, and cheap labour.
  • The State and the Revolution (1917) interprets the ideas of Marx and Engels, the October Revolution's theoretic basis, and opposes the social-democratic tendency as indecisive in effecting revolution.
  • April Theses (1917) propose the socio-economic need for a socialist revolution.
  • "Left-Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder (1920) A sharp critique of the 'ultra-left'

Soviet censorship of Lenin

.After his death, the USSR selectively censored Lenin's writings, to establish the dogma of the infallibility of Lenin, Stalin (his successor), and the Central Committee;[89] thus, the Soviet fifth edition (55 vols., 1958–65) of Lenin's œuvre deleted the Lenin–Stalin contradictions, and all that is unfavourable to the founder of the USSR.[90] Moreover, the historians Richard Pipes and David Brandenberger published a documentary collection of letters and telegrams excluded from the Soviet fifth edition, that is not notably different from the Collected Works, which does not suggest censorship.^ For Lenin's correspondence with Stalin on the ship-repair programme see Collected Works , Vol.

"In several parts of his book, Eastman says that the Central Committee concealed from the Party a number of exceptionally important documents written by Lenin in the last period of his life (it is a matter of letters on the national question, the so-called 'will', and others); there can be no other name for this, than slander against the Central Committee of our Party. . . . Vladimir Ilyich did not leave any 'will', and the very character of his attitude towards the Party, as well as the character of the Party, itself, precluded any possibility of such a 'will'. What is usually referred to as a 'will' in the émigré and foreign bourgeois and Menshevik press (in a manner garbled beyond recognition) is one of Vladimir Ilyich's letters containing advice on organisational matters. The 13th Congress of the Party paid the closest attention to that letter, as to all of the others, and drew from it the conclusions appropriate to the conditions and circumstances of the time. All talk about concealing or violating a 'will' is a malicious invention."
