Leninism

 

the teachings of V. I. Lenin, the brilliant continuator of the revolutionary cause and of the doctrine of K. Marx and F. Engels. Lenin creatively developed all aspects of Marxism—its philosophy, political economy, and scientific communism—under new historical conditions. Leninism is being developed further in the theoretical work of the CPSU and the world communist movement. Leninism is “Marxism of the era of imperialism and proletarian revolutions, the era of the collapse of colonialism and the victory of national liberation movements, the era of the transition of mankind from capitalism to socialism and the construction of communist society” (K 100-letiiu so dnia rozhdeniia V. I. Lenina: Tezisy TsK KPSS, 1969, p. 5).
