On Vladimir Lenin's Assertion that History Needs a "Push"

And by, push, the dude of course meant; killing and robbing the peasants, torturing and/or murdering striking workers, using poison gas on his enemies (the green and white armies), slaughtering the Cossacks, destroying the economy, eliminating laws and replacing them with arbitrary edicts, etc..

Or that he thought history needed a putsch?

That is what he did when he overthrew the new democratic government in Russia, and re-instated a new Empire much more brutal than it had been in the last years of the Tsars, and much more expansionist.

And it was Trotsky who advocated that the Czar's ENTIRE family be murdered.
