A Letter to American Workers, Lenin, cover of the 1934 American edition -- Daily LIFT #224


"Let the kept bourgeois press howl to the whole world about each mistake made by our revolution. We are not afraid of our mistakes. Men have not become saints because the revolution has begun...

For every hundred mistakes of ours heralded to the world by the bourgeoisie and its lackeys...there are 10,000 great and heroic deeds, the greater and the more heroic for their simplicity, for their being unseen and hidden in the everyday life of an industrial quarter or provincial village, performed by men who are not used to (and who do not have the opportunity to) herald their achievements to the world."
