THE GUILLOTINE AT WORK Vol. 1: The Leninist Counter-Revolution

£1.50

The Guillotine At Work develops the theme that the Stalinist terror of the 1930s-1950s, the bureaucratisation of Russian society, the imperialist escapades, through to the total disregard for human rights in the Soviet Union and other East European countries under its dominion were not aberrations in the development of a socialist society, but rather a logical development of Marxist philosophy which found its orientation in the writings and actions of Lenin (and Trotsky), had Stalin as one of its chief protagonists, and throughout its history had a host of faceless bureaucrats maintaining and bolstering its repressive regime with even more sophisticated control of the hearts and minds of the peoples of Eastern Europe. The Guillotine At Work serves one main purpose: “to dispel the aura which Lenin’s disciples have bestowed on him by showing that Lenin was primarily concerned with attaining power and holding on to it as a dictator by means of terror.”
