"The Consolidation of the Russian Revolution"

Course of Our Times, Series I

VHS; U-Matic; 16mm film


Program Number

Date Aired
ca. 1969

30 min.

Lenin's years of power ranged only from 1917 to 1922 when a stroke virtually incapacitated him. In this five-year period, by unmatched resourcefulness and a ruthlessness that rivaled any in history, he warded off powerful external enemies, eliminated international opposition, and laid the foundations for a new Communist world. He abolished God and the Bible but, since his death, he has been more venerated than God, and his writings have achieved a power far beyond the reverence ever extended to the sacred writings of Christendom.
