Burying Lenin

category international | worker & community struggles and protests | other press author Thursday October 06, 2005 13:00author by iosaf Report this post to the editors

on the 28th of August, Georgi Poltavchenko delegate to the central federal district of Russia suggested burying Lenin. That means putting him in a box, sticking it under ground, and hopefully forgetting about all the mausoleum stuff.

As you'd expect the suggestion (thought to be supported by Mr Putin) has provoked a lot of public debate amongst Russians, former Soviet citizens and naturally the fans, non-fans, and "I never was a fan" types of leninism / centralised state socialism / sovietic tyranny - the world over.

Join the debate - read on....
he's a catholic give him a burial.
he's a catholic give him a burial.

Q. First off who was Lenin?

A. easy one that, Lenin was a Kalmyk/Volga germanic / jewish subject of the russian empire born in 1870.

Ok so he was a russian, they'll pay for his burial.
_________________________________________

Q. Was he a kathurlick?
A. His maternal grandfather abandoned the jewish faith due to tsarist pogroms making it difficult to sing the psalms and copy the scrolls, and his maternal grandmother abandoned her german lutheran faith to become russian orthodox catholics, and Lenin's mammy baptised him a russian orthodox catholic which is a partner organisation to the Kathurlicks.

Ok so no religious objections to the burial then.

_________________________________________

Q. Where is he now?
A. "answers on a postcard" At present mr Lenin is on permenant display at the "Lenin mausoleum" in Red Square Moscow. His body lies there despite his last wishes that no memorials be created for him. He was lucky, in the 1920s the Russian state bought equipment to cyrogenically suspend him and revive him at some future point. But the "freeze 'em till you need 'em" science was in its early days and they settled for embalmbing fluid instead.

__________________________________________

Q. Has he been at rest?
A. Sticky one that, we do know that the Soviet state took the opportunity of examining his brain tissue and comissioned a german scientist Oskar Vogt (born April 6, 1870 - July 30, 1959) to write a report which published in 1929 claimed that some pyramidal neurons in the third layer of Lenin's cerebral cortex were very large.
Further to that he didn't really do much, oh yes
he oozed goo for a while during the lowest stages of the cold war according to western news sources, but the ruskies insist he's well cared for and gets repainted once a year a dipped in fluid. They've even had a lengthy debate on changing his suit.
But for the most part they're happy they've proved their skills to the world, and since the collapse of soviet communism have been much in demand by mafia bosses.

_________________________________________

Q. How do I get involved?

A. easy, write to Mr Poltavchenko
Office of the Presidential Envoy to the Central Federal District,
Staraya pl. 4, R-103132 Moscow, Russia
or call / fax him:-
Tel.: +7 (095) 206-6904
Fax: +7 (095) 206-7273
He's a basketball fan, was Born Feb. 23, 1953 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
He graduated in 1976 from the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) Institute of Aviation Instrument Manufacturing; and in 1980 graduated from the "Higher Courses" of the KGB where he got the rank of Lieutenant-General. He looks a bit like Willie O dea, the same unfashionable moustache hiding a cruel lip and weasel mean-ness about the eyes.

lets compare & contrast
Bentham (1748-1832) the utilitarian philosopher
"after death, Bentham's body was (as requested in his will) preserved and stored in a wooden cabinet, termed his "Auto-Icon," at University College London. It has occasionally been brought out of storage at official functions so that Bentham's eccentric presence would live on. The Auto-Icon has always had a wax head, as Bentham's head was badly damaged in the preservation process. The real head was displayed in the same case for many years, but became the target of repeated student pranks, being stolen on more than one occasion, and is now locked away securely."
you can see him still, in his clothes of the day, read the article, think about the legacy, check your neighbourhood for unburied philosphers.

Lets bury them all.
