Leninism or Communism?

Gilles Dauvé


Reprint of a text by Jean Barrot as a contribution to the demystification of the Russian Revolution, particularly with regard to the role of Lenin and the Bolsheviks. “Leninism continues to haunt the minds of many revolutionaries of more or less good will who are searching for a recipe capable of success. Persuaded that they are “of the vanguard” because they possess “consciousness”, whereas they only possess a false theory, they struggle militantly for a union of those two metaphysical monstrosities, “a spontaneous working class movement, bereft of any theory” and a disembodied “socialist consciousness.”
