It is bizarre that the mortal remains of Lenin, the author of Materialism and Empirio Criticism, should lie mouldering in glass box.

For his body to kept in a state of arrested decomposition and maintained as a fetished object of semi-religious veneration is an affront to dialectical materialism and an ideological concession to idealist thought.

Lenin himself wanted to be buried next to his mother in Volkova Cemetery. His widow wanted him buried.

The power of Lenin’s ideas arise from their impact on the consciousness of women and men, in the practical action that human beings take in shaping the material world.

Communists should take the initiative in demanding the burial of his body the better that his rational world view can triumph.
