On a recent posting, I stated
"As to Lenin, his point of view was related to an eventual break up of
the Soviet Union. He did not write on the break up of eventual large
capitalist semicolonies, simply because he could never see a single one
alive. These have appeared after 1945"
in obvious oblivion of the most immense case of break up of Latin
America. However, the Bolsheviks knew almost nil on Latin America, as
testified by Lenin himself during the -I think- 3rd. Congress of the
Communist International. But even Latin American Marxism began to
discover this essential task of revolution only after Trotsky proposed
the United Socialist States of Latin America (and so far as I know there
was one single group, the Octubre group in Argentina, that understood
the deep meaning of this proposition and began to work on this line by
the mid 1940s).
So that although my statement was wrong, at least it gives the correct
idea as to Lenin´s horizon.
