(5) Lenin was Evil
NOTE: We offer a wealth of original content in today’s issue. In addition to our two editorials, scholar Paul R. Gregory offers our readers a preview of his just-published work on the malignant dictator Josef Stalin, drawing horrifying comparisons between Stalin and Vladimir Putin (a piece we republish from a Russian scholar about Lenin provides a perfect bookend for this excellent piece of analysis, and we look forward to perusing Gregory’s new volume). Then Dave Essel translates from and comments on the latest piece from Novaya Gazeta exposing fraud and corruption at the very highest levels of the Putin regime. Finally, LR publisher and founder Kim Zigfeld’s latest installment on the powerful American Thinker blog reviews Boris Nemtsov’s latest white paper exposing Putin’s economic failure and the shameful silence of the Obama administration in regard to Nemtsov’s political persecution (he was arrested just last weekend, in case you missed it).
