George Person: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin RESPONSE

When speaking of absolutes , perhaps we need to be more generous with Mr. Lenin... 
In an absolute sense, Lenin represented working-class people politics...that in an absolute sense, people had a right to economic dignity, and that they were important as human beings...and as human beings were worthy of economic support, notwithstanding their station in life...it was not  long after Lenin's presence on the political scene, that the USA implemented the Social Security Administration - making sure the seeds of our own destruction didn't sprout into full scale social revolution in the United States...
 
But in an absolute sense, Lenin misjudged the power of religion...that the atheistic state was a mistake in the absolute sense... because in the absolute sense, taking away from people their property and their God was in an absolute sense , directly antithetical to the spirit and truth they've grown accustomed to over the centuries, and was way too culturally revolutionary for the world, notwithstanding the economic sufferings of the common man during this time...
 
Lenin, in an absolute sense, showed the world that the common man can rebel against the establishment in order to better their own lives...and was willing to implement violence to do so...that people are not worthless lifeforms, as life passes by them like Lazarus at the gate, where only Lenin's dogs lick the poor man's sores...
 
So, in an absolute sense, does the past of Lenin become prologue for the present?!  Can large groups of young people remained unemployed, while society just miserably chugs along, oblivious to the poverty which is growing around them. Is it proper to allow people to waste their lives with idleness, when there's so much to build and do for our world?!
 
Perhaps Lenin, in the absolute sense, is a soul which needs prayer...he layed his soul on the line so common men can have a better life.....perhaps modern Russia should put Lenin into perspective...that his life had force, yet, that force unfortunately crushed an innocent man's life, and from which, will become one more damning nail in his communist coffin...
 
America embraces ,in the present sense, the liberality of political freedom with conservative  reverence for the importance of private property...Russia's people had the legitimate right to negotiate for a better lifestyle than was afforded under the czarist system...in our society this is called "hardball," and they had the right to have a government responsive to their individual needs...
 
Russia has experimented with Communism...yet, finds its fundamental weakness is people are at their best when they are at their worst...that true genius is born in the fires of conflict and adversity, that simply making people comfortable, giving them just what they need to make it thru another day, isn't good enough, and will make them complacent in the struggle of creative commerce which brings new products and services  to the market based on the profit motive...true geniuses, who can profitably implement  their ideas successfully into the market, will consider communism an inferior political life form and will always stand against any system that doesn't reward the risk takers who used genius and calculation to become successful in this world.
 
When men like Sen. McCain stand against the country of Belarus for its clinging to the good old days of communism, it should be no surprise...he's a man who is a successful politician, who himself spent 6 years as a prisoner of war in Viet Nam....he's a man who understands the good life and has more fun in one weekend, than 90 % of the Belarus population does in ten years. Belarus should reflect the administration of President Putin...it should stay in line with the politics of Russia as it relates politically with the West and the United States - Russia is getting better media attention from the West and Belarus should strive for the very same...
 
In the absolute sense, Russia must embrace its shadows and forgive its past, for while modern Russia lives in the light, they have the opportunity to do good for the Russian ages which lives in the dark...for their Master, The Darkest Night will not show them any light , and for the Russian soul to be whole, it must embrace its entirety...that its Rasputins, that its Ivan the Terribles, that its Lenins, that its Stalins become the family of the Russian soul, which finds forgivenss from the Russian common man as the Holy City of Moscow is lifted by the song of angels, as this Holy City, with the American Flag flying over the Kremlin, begins its celestial journey back to the source of creation and the meaning of their existence...as a people who embrace the full passion of freedom as they make a life for themselves during their transitory period upon Earth...
