Synopsis

On the third anniversary of Lenin’s death, this article critiques his revolutionary framework.  It states that the path of violence and force are not conducive to human happiness. It gives an example of his “blunder” though a description of the current state of the Soviet Union: “It is full of privileged people (…) they have gagged the opposition press. Tyranny is evident.”  In overt contrast, the text poses the necessity of “working on souls, strengthening their consciousness” in a patient and ongoing manner in order to achieve an anarchical communism

Annotations

Following a time in which the journal was not published, it reappeared in September 1926 with a contiguous enumeration, although using a different format and with the subtitle Periódico Mensual. Bellas Artes y Polémica [Monthly Journal: Fine Arts and Controversy].  In this second phase that lasted until September–October 1927, eleven issues were published.
