So, my statement that I thought Lenin was a brilliant political thinker raised the odd eyebrow...

First, the caveats - it's a while since I studied this, and I am less familiar with post-1917 Lenin than pre-

If we are talking about Lenin as a thinker here, then I think I'm on safer ground - of course, a lot of his actions, didnt quite match what he had written down...

Equally, there are several changes of direction visible in Lenin's thought. However, I don't see too much problem here - it's natural for people to change opinions on issues as they go through life...

All of this aside, I would present, for example, 'The State and Revolution' as one of the greatest societal blueprints written, right up there with Rousseau and the like...

a different perspective when your government-controlled school system forces you to read "materialism and empirio-criticism."

now that's a violation of the geneva convention!

The one book Lenin said (after the Bolsheviks came to power) he wished he'd never written.... :rolleyes:

Rousseau was about 52 cards short of a full deck himself. "Noble savages," indeed.... :sick:

McCartney and Ringo were better musicians though.

Shatner - I think you actually missed Trebor's brilliant play on words:

'Ride' of course being a type of cymbal on most drumkits and Ringo being a drummer - "along for the ride"...

Trebor - you owe me a beer for that!!;)

D'oh! Missed it completely! :shame: I played the slush pump in school, not the skins.

Brilliant indeed, and worthy of the highest comedic accolades!!! :D

Lenin (Lennon?) was the guy that wrote all the substance behind the scenes. McCartney was the one that made it work. Ringo and George pretty much did what they were told as long as they got to go along for the ride.

What's up with him marrying that ugly tramp of an excuse for a female anyway? I've seen better looking women working the train stations than her!:confused:

BTW, Sir Paul is performing at the superbowl. They are banking on the fact that he is not going to be showing us any nipple. Frankly, I am hoping NOT to see any either!
