Setting the record straight?…//Once Again: In Defence of Lenin – a reply to Orlando Figes
It is important for leftists to make their case and try to set the record straight but the facts of the case are obscured on both sides. But it is very difficult to fully agree with any account at this point, such is the confusion of accounts.

In any case we have suggested here many times the need for a new communism to distance itself from the history of bolshevism and focus on the future with a new framework rather than the past. As this article notes at the beginning the view of the public in general is so hostile that it is simply holding back the left to feel one has to justify the whole bolshevik legacy.
