Lenin Still Lives! (An Unofficial Biography in Pictures)

User avatar
Russian State Prize winner in literature and art Rinat Voligamsi (Ufa, Bashkiria) published his version of Lenin's life, reports Interfax.

"The song inspired me to dream on the theme "Lenin is alive, he is more alive than all the living" 15 years ago," Voligamsi has told Interfax on Thursday.

The artist imagines the leader of the world revolution didn't die in 1924, but abandoned politics and started living as a good Muslim because his relatives were of Bashkir origin. Then "renovated Lenin" begins associating with his fictitious twin-brother Sergey and goes on Hajj to Mecca and even writes a work entitled “Islam as the last hope of revolution”.

"I imagine Lenin as an ordinary villager sitting near his peasant's house and smoking tobacco he grew with his own hands in the garden or married to three women or going to Mecca late in life because I think that every atheist has his way to God and Lenin could have found this path," the artist says.

The author's fantasy goes on: Lenin is hiding away in Latin America during World War II where he consults Castro and Trotsky on various questions and he spends the last days of his life with his family in Zurich, where they have an antiques boutique.

The artist realized his unusual project in 2005 when he made 21 photo collages. He used hundreds of authentic old pictures in his work and turned them to "real fantasy" with Photoshop.

"No one saw any mockery in such a creative presentation and vision of Lenin's life. He was an ordinary man and could have lived the way represented by the artist," the Bashkir Union of Artists told Interfax.

I've heard a rumor that comrade Lenin has been traveling the country organizing free haircuts for the homeless.

Hmmm... Could this be Lenin's great nephew, son of Natasha?


Didn't Vladimir Lenin write the American Declaration of Independence? Now that I think about it - mayby not.

“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” Vladimir Lenin

“It is true that liberty is precious - so precious that it must be carefully rationed... When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward - or go back. He who now talks about the "freedom of the press" goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism.” Vladimir Lenin

Pursuit of Happiness (Labored-for Private Property):
“The way to crush the bourgeoisie (middle class) is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” Vladimir Lenin

Comrade Kulak,

Comrade Lenin wrote many informative party documents, but none so treasured as a recently discovered early document he wrote when he first realized the need for a collective as a way to address unequal distribution of other peoples goods. His document was envisioned right after bathing with Sergey's wife Sukhra. After meditating on her gams for several hours he theorized that his brother's possession of Sukhra was bourgeoisie and thus should be subject to the collective, which at that time consisted of him, a bath tub, two bottles of potato vodka and 5 beets.

Such a lovely fantasy. Imagine dear Lenin still among us, but it's 2010 and we all know such things are impossible. No such miracle of Soviet science could be possible!

Have a happy Earth/Lenin day Comrades,

Lenin is alive and well thanks to injections of hormones taken from the glands of orphan boys in Romania. Once we begin harvesting these precious bodily fluids in earnest all Inner Party members will have access to this technology.

Yes Happy Birthday Comrade Lenin!!
Thank you for all you have done to the world to make it a workers paradise!
As The Father of the Revolution I am sure you are very proud of Comrade Obama, him being the Son of the Revolution and all....

I honor of your birthday I shall go around freely punching capitalists in the face and laughing at them.

Well I mean more so than usual.

From Wikipedia (ushanka tip to Mi) - A commemorative plaque on a house in Zürich (Spiegelgasse 14).

Here lived from Feb. 21, 1916 to Apr.2, 1917 - LENIN, the Führer of the Russian Revolution

Hier wohnte v. 21. Febr. 1916 bis 2. April 1917 – LENIN – der Führer der russischen – Revolution.

And similar plaque should be raised on The Obama's (PBUH) government approved mansion, er domicile in Chicago! Except of course instead of FUHRER is should probably say 'Sohn'. Except of course why would it be in Deutsch in Chicago?

English or Russian would be acceptable.

Oh and of course a huge gold statue of The Obama (PBUH) in his front lawn 50 feet high depicting him 'spreading the wealth around' to the poor downtrodden masses.

Comrade Unkulturny has studied with Great Interest the Literary Creations of Comrade Lenin.

As far as can be told, the Actual Caption to the Photograph Of Our Sainted Leader was a short 4-line Poem that was written by He Himself. The poem reads:
"Here I Sit
Tried to..."

Unfortunately, the remainder of the poem is illegible, but it is clear that Comrade Lenin is brokenhearted over the irrational intransigence of the counter-revolutionaries in our midst. The photograph is nevertheless a True Inspiration For All Comradely-Thinking And True-Believing New Soviet Men!

Thank you, thank you for such a big load of crap inspiration!
Image Now, excuse me Comrades, while I return to my hard joyous labor of beating guiding our dumb-ass prolles new party applicants in shoveling earth for their own education achieving the The Progressive World of Next Tuesday™.

Yo, might I have use of the Boss' Zil next week for a Party Drive-by? You don't have to worry about me letting Ted use it like last time.

Comrades, You must ask yourselves. What would Lenin be doing if he were alive today?

Scratching on lid of coffin.
