Reflection on History vs. Vladimir Lenin After watching the short videos about the Russian Revolution and the USSR, write a short response (1-2 paragraphs) to the question below. Use specific examples and concrete details from the assigned videos to support your answer! Based on the materials presented in these videos, how would you respond to the question posed during the mock trial of Vladimir Lenin – did he topple one form of tyranny and replace it with another? How does the “prosecutor” make his case? In his view, why did Lenin destroy an emerging “constitutional, social democrat government?” What counter-arguments does the “defense attorney” present? How does he defend some of the deplorable actions of the Bolsheviks and the Soviet Communist Party? What do you think? Is Lenin guilty of replacing one anti-democratic regime with another? Or was he not responsible for the actions of those who followed him in power?
