Estado y revolución

No, democracy is not identical with the subordination of the minority to the majority. Democracy is a state which recogizes the subordination of the minority to the majority, i.e., an organization for the systematic use of violence by one class against the other, by one section of the population against another....

    If one wants to engage with Lenin, it's important to engage with him at his best. Yes, some of his flaws still shine through (mainly that, due to the class nature of the inner core of the Bolshevik party (a class nature encouraged by the Russian material conditions), Bolshevism was alw...

    Being a dirty red, I found it amazing (and surprising) that I had never sat down with this piece. I had read sections in Marxism classes years ago, but it was refreshing to get back into it. Excellent. A must. ...

    drawing heavily on the works of marx and engels, lessons drawn from the paris commune of 1871, and his own experiences from 1905 and 1917, lenin sums up the armed workers' revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat, and then outlines the eventual withering away of the state in ...

    This is the famous book in which Lenin asserted (quoting Engels) that ?the state will wither away? under Communism, and which is therefore sometimes oddly accused of being ?utopian? and ?anarchist.? It is neither of these, but it does require some work to parse out. Hist...

    Shockingly lucid and surprisingly accessible. In an extremely short book of very limited scope (to examine the nature of the state before, during, and after the revolution), Lenin accomplishes what much more ambitious works can only dream of: he lays out a credible, concrete roadmap fo...

    Well... I can see why Rothbard liked it, and reading it gave me new insights into Rothbardian political strategy. However, it also made me feel as though the Soviet Union as it existed was more or less what Lenin was aiming for, and what he describes in this book as the first stage ...

    Lenin's books are not worth reading. Calling upon people to destroy the state is easy enough; building up something after that, not so easy. Claiming that people will magically fall in love with laboring for others doesn't actually solve the problem, even if Marx (the great prophet) de...

    Lenin is the first Marxist philosopher other than Karl and Engels that I feel has contributed greatly to my understanding of politics: this really is accessible. I know a little bit about the people he's mad at here (Saratelli and Kautsky come up for repeated beatings) but not a ton, a...

    There's an episode of The Simpsons in which an enraged gigantic Lenin smashes out of his tomb and starts stomping on people in Red Square shouting "Crush Capitalism". As far as I can recall this is a surprisingly concise and accurate synopsis of "State and Revolution" (so long as on...

    It was really interesting getting a glimpse into Lenin's head right around the time of the Russian Revolution. His criticisms of Kautsky were pretty illuminating; it helped clarify what delineated Bolshevism / Leninism from other Marxist ideologies of the time. It's also tragic to thin...

    The February Revolution of 1917 goaded the fall of the Romanov dynasty when tsar Nicholas II abdicated, and things started to look surprisingly auspicious for Vladimir Ilich Lenin and his Bolshevik party. However, the Provisional Government of Georgi Lvov, in the midst of the colossal ...

    The opening of this book is perhaps the most enlightening thing I?ve ever read on Marxism (I guess technically it?s Marxist-Leninism since here we are reading Lenin). The initial reflection on what the function and the history of the State is in relation to Bourgeois democracy and ...

    There are points where I diverge with Lenin and points where I agree with him. The need for some kind of "discipline" and the transitory nature of a state, if it even is transitory (positions opposed by anarchists) are points I have come to recognize, although it makes me uncomfortable...

    Extremely thorough and well written, deals with the question of the state after the revolution, makes distinctions between communists, social democrats and anarchists. Argues that anarchists and communists have the common goal of the abolition of the state, it is simply the methods tha...

    If you happen to get the version which has a forward by Richard Pipes, I strongly suggest reading the text of Vladimir Lenin first, maybe Google or Wikipedia some of the historical references, and draw your own conclusion. Richard Pipes is your classical establishment propaganda clerk ...

    Essential reading for anyone interested in proletarian revolution and its relation to the state. Very well written, inspiring, and certainly has the fire of immediacy stewing in it. You can tell it was written with great energy, probably quickly. The only issue is that sometimes it's r...

    Another pre 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution (October not February!) read. More to come. Written in the summer of 1917 in exile, 'State and Revolution' is one of Lenin's key works on state power , class and capitalism. And very timely as we slowly recover from 3 decades of ...

    Something, somewhere went incredibly wrong. Not only does Lenin espouse a viable socialism, but also a very libertarian one?obviously not as libertarian as the anarchists he is so eager to criticize. He advocates for the freedom of the proletariat to self-determine, and organize i...

    Reads about how you?d expect: disdainful towards different takes on socialism and interpretations of Marx and Engels, labeling rival groups pejorative terms, extreme confidence in his route forward, etc. I found it quite interesting to hear such a detailed case against parliamentaris...

    ?The State and Revolution? is a standout read in which Lenin, confronting a revolution that came too much before advanced capitalism had developed, found himself between a part of the left ready to hand back power to the capitalists in return for concessions, and the anarchists rea...

    And the State withers away? how? Preamble: 1) I recognize the wealth of scholarship and debates over Lenin, Leninism, Marxism, Marxism-Leninism, Communism, the Russian Revolution, the USSR, etc. 2) However, I still intend to apply my (differing) background to engage with this ...

    State and Revolution Lenin Review: The most dangerous lies start with fragments of truth and become full-fledged deceptions. The first thing that striked and shocked me was the initial anti state stance on a correct notion of it as an evil and a monopoly of coercion that today it is ...

    First, allow me to say Lenin is a much, much better writer than Trotsky. Second, Lenin has provided in this work a roadmap to revolution. And what a nave roadmap it is in light of subsequent history. Lenin believed in an evolution of the state into a system where the proletariat r...

    This is an acerbic tract by the high theoretician Lenin against the falsifiers and vulgarizers of Marx and Engels--Kautsy, Bernstein and basically everyone who fudged or otherwise failed to raise the question of what to do with the state when the revolution rolls around (the revolution...

    A thorough dissection of Marx and those who have distorted Marx's work regarding the relation between the state and revolution. Lenin delivers a clear and basic understanding of what the state is, what it is for, and what to do with it. ...

    This historic book is Lenin's intervention in the realm of history against what is today known as "Democratic Socialism" and even some strains of "Marxism-Leninism". Throughout the passages we see parallels to today's opportunists, although today they have cast aside all illusions of M...
