Like any true tyrant, Vladimir Lenin came to power by force. Via the violence of the Bolshevik Takeover, Lenin was able to install himself into a position of absolute power through purely undemocratic means as the sole, central leader of the entire Russian state, a position he used to impose his will and the totalitarian dogma of Communism onto the populace through mass murder, government theft and state force.
Claims that Lenin was democratically elected, that he did not use his position to inflict his will through lethal force or that he had to face re-election are historical revisionism.
