- Program Description
“Less than 20,000 Communists were able to take control of a nation of 180 million and make Russia the springboard for a world revolution. The causes are complex, but three stand out. The complete breakdown of Russia during the war provided the opportunity for the well organized communist group to win over the workers and the peasants. There was no line of communication to the seats of authority that could present grievances except through conspiracy and disruption. And when the historic moment required the catalyst of a genius to bring destiny’s patterns together, the man, Lenin was there.”
