My question for Trotskyists is why were Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky good but Joseph Stalin bad ? Well I know why Joseph Stalin was bad but how were Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky good.
Answer by Confidential
They were at the forefront of the revolution and were proponents of positive things. They were not power hungry like Stalin. They had no intention of “dictatorship”. Trotsky was a military man, yes, but had no intention of forcing martial law on the Russian people. Lenin was a dreamer, a man who sought power for the people. Neither of them would have guessed that their country would have fallen into the hands of Stalin.
