Tariq Ali: The Dilemmas of Lenin

Broadcaster and author Tariq Ali creates an insightful portrait of a leader grappling with terrorism, war, empire, and love.
At the end of his life, Lenin wrote ‘we didn’t know everything’, acknowledging the dilemmas he faced on the road to revolution and beyond.

From the first stirrings of revolutionary fervour, Lenin sought the answer to dilemmas that still resonate today: is terrorism ever a useful tactic? Can imperial wars ever be supported? What is the moral justification for seizing power? What role does friendship or love play in revolution? 

Broadcaster and author Tariq Ali creates an insightful portrait of a leader grappling with terrorism, war, empire, and love. He asks what the significance of Lenin’s ideas is now, in this centenary year of the Russian Revolution.
