Robert C. Tucker on Lenin - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 44
Lenin/Tucker/Scherrer: Robert Tucker saw in What is to be done? the conceptual "procreation" of Bolshevism and in Lenin's "Archimedean sentence": "Give us an organisation of revolutionaries and we will lift Russia off its hinges" (cited Tucker 1987, 35 (1)) the "Charter of Bolshevism". What is to be done? contains for Tucker the "prospectus of a new culture", the core of which is formed by the authoritative party state, the one-party system.
