The founder of the USSR Vladimir Lenin believed that people are born for great happiness, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on April 22 on the air of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel.
Speaking about Lenin’s role in the world history, the political scientist said that “we don’t know any politician who created a new country and started a revolution without committing any cruelty in the process. Take, for instance, Robespierre, Cromwell, or anyone else”.
Responding to the previous speaker’s claim that the USSR was a weak project as it had only existed for 70 years, Kurginyan noted that “the point is the following: imagine that we assess everything in the world by the principle “you’ve made something and it breaks, collapses and then you have to immediately reject the idea of making it ever again.” In doing so, we wouldn’t be able to build an aircraft, make any breakthrough invention, etc.”
In conclusion Kurginyan said: “the man pushed it all forward, and he believed that people are born not for some kind of down-to-earth existence, but for great happiness. And if we keep that faith in the future, if the society is built not upon a small and bourgeois being (one that people themselves hate, one that drags everything great through the mud) but rather built upon this greatness and built for everyone, then we probably will vindicate everything that Lenin did.”
April 22, 1870 is the birthday of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (Lenin), the inspirer and leader of the Great October Socialist Revolution and the founder of the world’s first socialist state. Lenin’s actions greatly influenced the 20th century’s history.
