FUN FACT: "One of those who cooked for Rasputin during the Great War was a chef at Petrograd's luxurious Astoria Hotel who went on, after the Revolution, to cook for Lenin and Stalin. He was Spiridon Putin, grandfather of President Vladimir Putin." Simon Montefiore, "The Romanovs", Vintage Books, 2016, footnote, page 600.

It seems that Lenin was less rabidly idealistic and more pragmatic in his latter years, especially compared to Stalin; a bit less power hungry as well. I imagine if Lenin had lived to rule for another 10-20 years, the Soviet Union may have developed quite a bit differently and history could look quite different.

Stalin was faced with upcoming war, and he new it. It was his burden to prepare SU for the war, and he has done good.

A few notable propaganda type errors here and there, however. One being the characterisation of the October Manifesto reforms as a stage managed charade by the emperor's court. Could not be further from the truth; Russian parliamentarianism, from 1905-1918, was actually further ahead in some aspects than in most Western European countries, during the same period. The economy also grew exponentially since the reforms were officially inaugurated. Most if not all of Lenin's grievances, were entirely ideologically based. Historical enemies of Russia simply used his many rantings as material for propaganda purposes, to discredit Russia.

We can never know how the USSR might have evolved had Lenin lived beyond 1924 but even if he had, Stalin would have been there, waiting, and all the time engaged in building up his power base. As ruthless as Lenin was, it is arguable that Stalin was more so, and would have, come what may, emerged victorious in any subsequent power struggle.

Lenin led an interesting early life he was highly educated and intelligent and had great visions for Russia such as the workers'Rights. But his later life is not the case it sums up turmoil, chaos and instability.

I think one should also mention those three assassination attempts on Lenin in connection with his change of mind in regards to constituent assembly and hardening of his overall position early in 1918. Counter-revolution emerged immediately after 1917 and Lenin felt that communists had to harden their approach so that they were able to deal with it better and save revolutionary gains for Russian society. You have to tie assassination attempts to Lennin's change of position in regards to the form of governing. Of course, forming of Cheka was a mistake as this monster was impossible to delete after the end of civil war. But one cannot judge Lenin here too much as conditions in which he and communists found themselves after 1917 were extreme and clear and 100% right solution was impossible to see. Situation must resolve quickly during volatile post-revolution year if one wants to have success. Add to this lack of resources for new commmunist government in terms of dealing with emergence of counter-revolution reaction. I also think that well-functioning bourgeois capitalist democracy wasnt possible in Russia at that time. It would've meant opening yourself to developed western capitalism that would have turned Russia into appendage, another "Africa", source for the rich European capitalism. Nobody would've let Russia to develop calmly into developed industrial capitalism. Russia would've gotten into same situation it got in 1990s. But way worse. So Lenin's idea was correct and only way at that point. To develop Russia into industrial country via centralized state governing. Russia would've never developed so quickly into industrial nation via capitalist profit-making logic. And people shouldnt forget the hostility of all European and Western nations towards Russia in 1920s and 1930s. Capitalists didnt want to have socialist state so close to their borders. And in 1930s Stalin really thought that England would invade Soviet Union any minute hence his paranoia.

Let me say only one thing here. The video says that it was likely that Lenin did not know of his mother's Jewish heritage. But in a recent Dutch podcast I heard a professor of history say that Lenin was proud of his part-Jewish heritage, because he admired some intellectual Jews and had a high esteem of them. So my point is: so many things are said on the internet without any reliable source and many of those 'facts' or strong assumptions are not true at all.

Answer elicited by narrator at end ( “ If Lenin had lived longer might a more benign Soviet regime have emerged?” : depends upon what the imperialists did , and most likely the latter would have combinedly resolved to overthrow the regime, and would have more likely succeeded in doing so to a less dictatorial one. Moreover, history since has told us how avaricious many influential foreign eyes have been upon Russia, right up to the present historical moment as I write of January 2023.

First and foremost i must mention what a great documemtary this was! Thank you! Considering the question weather or not Lenin would have become as brutal and ruthless as Stalin. I honestly don’t think he would. Few leaders have with their own handwriting send as many people to death as Stalin did. Whilst Lenin genuinely cared for the cause before anything else. Unfortunately though, it is in the nature of Communism or by any totalitarian regime to always end up in bloodshed. Right from the start in 1917 they encountered the fact that people are democratic by heart and won’t succumb to anything else or that one fixed opinion should apply to all. Someone will always be thrown under the bus so the only way to maintain a totalitarian state is through tyranny or by executing it’s opponents. Just as it so happend in any totalitarian regime or Dictatorship throughout history and up to this day.

It is somewhat biased, presenting the early Soviet Russia in a more negative light than it was. They don't mention many progressive policies like women's suffrage and political representation of non-Russian nationalities - it was under Soviet rule and in line with Soviet policy when most of Ukraine's population actually began speaking Ukrainian, for expample. They praise the supposed 'free market' of the NEP, which wasn't actually a free market but a mixed system, and ignore the fact that under a later planned economy USSR was also one of the fastest growing countries. They overstate the totalitarianism, not mentioning the white terror, plundering of the countryside and authoritarianism of the White forces etc etc

A well designed documentary about Lenin which leaves viewer's to decide whether he can create a totalitarian or a flexible communist country. In conclusion as I have understand from Lenin collected works Volume 1 ,2 ,3 if lenin had lived longer communism will never be collapsed I believe he can make a capitalist idea in a communist form

These films are excellent: fact-filled, well-narrated and well-illustrated but the scripted English isn't great. In many places the words are ordered incorrectly, which could cause confusion. For example, at 11:35 the narrator says: '...as he began working on a book titled 'The Development of Capitalism in Russia While in Gaol',...". Obviously, the book didn't have this title. What was meant was that while in gaol, Lenin began working on a book titled 'The Development of Capitalism in Russia'. Pedantic, I know but when you spot it, it is annoying and sometimes confusing.

Best book on this period is "Red Victory " by W Bruce Lincoln , about the civil war of 1918 - 21. Thanks for your efforts to portray this important political figure who definitely impacted history. On the question of whether he would have become as brutal of a dictator as Stalin became, nobody really knows the answer but I think he would have gone in that direction. He was a " True Believer" and as such had a Totalitarian mindset which couldn't allow dissent. moreover, it will help us understand viladimir putin mindset and ukrain war. my favourite book of modern history along with Shirers "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich , Lincolns book is best for its character descriptions eg] Zinoviev and kamenev as "political Siamese twins" , the description of Dzerzhinsky is brilliant , the anecdote of the Llubyanka food enough to give one nightmares , " horse hair and hide with sticky floating globules all culminating in a foul evil smelling liquid " is what I can remember from reading it way back in 92 , also the discriptions of some of the horrible cossack attamans like Kalmykov and Ungern Sternburg not to mention the anarchist leader Makhno ,if anyone likes modern history books you will love this ! best wishes aijaz from pakistan

In a conversation with Steinberg (a left-social revolutionary), Lenin presented his views at length. Seeing that his advice did not touch Lenin in the least, a desperate Steinberg shouted."so why are we struggling with the Commissariat of Justice, let's call it short and clear: "Commissariat for Social Extermination" and that's the end of the story. Lenin's face lit up at those words. "Well formulate, that's exactly what he should be. To bad that we can't say that publicly"

One of the most comprehensive overviews of the 19-20 centuries of the Russian history. Some sources suggest that even though less obvious, Lenin was just as a cruel dictator as Stalin was. Summary executions and the de facto abolishment of the justice system serve as a good argument to this end.

I don’t think Lenin would have taken the Soviet Union in the direction Stalin did.Hewas too intellectually advanced and far too confident of his power to have to Stalin’s repressive methods.He even offered investment opportunities to western countries who declined under pressure from the Anglo-Americans.Lenin despite his ideological orientation was above all a pragmatist.Pity his last will condemning Stalin, his intellectual inferiority and citing his lack of judiciousness in the exercise of the enormous powers the General Secretary of the Party enjoyed,could not stop Stalin’s rise,for which the senior leaders at that time, Zinoviev and Kamenev(due to their differences with Trotsky)were basically responsible.And grieviously did they and the Soviet people pay for it!In my view Lenin combined the capability of both a Mao Zedong and Deng Xian’s Ping.

43:54 "a new Ukrainian state" requires the extreme clarification that it was only the Lwow/Gallicia/Volynhia region that was ruled by the self declared state in Lwow. When Germany collapsed it became a very venal anti-Jewish anti-Russian proto Nazi state that had only 13% or so literacy. There were competing and even more vicious racist bandit states in Kiev (Petlura) and Zaporozyhe (the so called anarchists who were basically rapists and marauders), plus Tsarists still in Rostov whose first move was to attack northwest to reconnect with Europe. The Lwow proto-Nazis were defeated by Poland. The others by the Tsarists. Then the Red Ukraine forces from Kharkov and the side-switching bandits - as at that time "Ukraine" did not include any Black Sea coast -took over from Tsarists whose last gasp was attacking Petrograd from Estonia in 1922.

Ali Shariati had the progression something along the lines of primitive - feudal - dynastic - capitalist - communist. He had it that after this progression you then get into the metaphysical, but not religion for the sake of religion, not religion as the opiate for the masses, but a form of spiritualism which transcends the materialism of communism and capitalism. Shariati had Iran skipping the capitalist and communist stages and thus leaving feudal / dynastic for the metaphysical. Hitler, on the other hand, would have it that you transcend the feudal, the dynastic, capitalism, and communism for Nationalism.
