Lenin: A Man for All Time, booklet cover, Communist Party of Canada for the centenary of Lenin's birth, speech by Tim Buck -- Daily LIFT #265


"Lenin's life and work were the most perfect expression of the axiom "Hitch your wagon to a star." The star to which he dedicated his life and his work was the ideal of the abolition of the exploitation of man by man and the oppression of nation by nation: the ideal of communism. That lofty aim possessed him. It became his beacon. His passion for it burned in him like a flame. He fought for the achievement of this ideal with all the power of his mighty intellect and with an energy and enthusiasm that never waned."


This year marked the 150th anniversary of Lenin's birth.
