Putin Trashes Marx and Lenin: Marxism Was Wrong, Family Matters, by Russian Faith.
On national television, the Russian President said that Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Vladimir Lenin were wrong in their theories about the traditional family. Putin says children need to experience the love of both a mother and a father.
“100 years ago, the creators of the Marxist theory thought that families would cease to exist, and children would be raised by a community, dreaming of a new society.”
“Practice has shown that the absence of a loved one, the absence of a mother or a father, makes a young person defective. Because even though the idea that Marx, Engels, and then Lenin formulated might sound nice, they forgot the essential part of the upbringing of a complete person — Love.”
“When children don’t feel loved, its hard for them to feel confident. And confidence — not arrogance, but confidence — is an essential aspect of personal development.”
