lenin and lenin's mummy

Leninism is not a pudding mix, just add water and stir.

"I get very nervous when I hear Lenin
described in this manner," writes Louis Proyect.
"Everything he ever wrote and did was antithetical
to this approach."

Louis Proyect is certainly correct about the living man,
but he makes no mention of the mummy in the Lenin mausoleum:
the dead centre around which soviet-marxism revolved.

To truly appreciate this Lenin, one must turn from his selected
writings to his collected writings - *all* 75 volumes.
