January 21st, 1924 - Vladimir Lenin Dies
Vladimir Lenin, the first leader of the Soviet Union died of a brain hemorrhage at the age of 54.
Vladimir Lenin has marked his place in history as one of the worlds most ruthless political leaders. He was the founding father of the “Socialist Democratic Workers Party” in the Soviet Union. That may sound familiar to you as we have in our government right now members who belong to the “Democrat Socialist Party”. Some of the most prominent Members include Bernie Sanders & Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Lenin lead a group of militant revolutionaries who’s main goal was to over throw the existing government and install a new Marxist style of communism. They staged violent protests and forced innocent people into submission with the fear of violence or death. Their largest success was the ability to convince a large portion of the population that a socialist agenda was the only way to equality and prosperity for everyone. A dangerous movement that many in the Soviet Union would soon regret taking part in.
His death marks an important day in history because, upon his death in 1924, Lenin was succeeded by a fellow revolutionary and loyalist to the communist cause Joseph Stalin. It is estimated that Stalin Imprisoned over 40 million citizens and murdered over 20 million in his rein of terror.
It is important to know our history and see the warning signs that are present in today’s political climate. When you see the actions of local revolutionary groups being promoted by our political leaders and going un-checked, you should take pause and know that you are in a frightening and dangerous place. We can stop the Marxist movement that is happening in our country while it is small and containable. Understand what is going on and work to educate those who do not. Work to change the hearts and minds of your fellow Americans so that we can leave better and more prosperous nation for our children. Always remember, “The goal of socialism is communism”. That is a direct quote from the man who created socialism in the modern era.
