Re: The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series: "Left and Right around (and within) Nationalism" by Liah Greenfeld

Thanks to Daniele for continuing the conversation and beginning with important points on which we are in agreement. Regarding the Bolshevik Revolution, whose 100-year anniversary we passed last month, its nationalist character is nowhere revealed more clearly than in Lenin’s own writings, particularly his essay “What Is To Be Done?” Russia’s socialism had not changed the character of Russian nationalism, and it still remains the same today, after Socialism no longer figures in Russia’s official name. I would guess that the same applies to nationalisms of Poland and Hungary.
