Transcript REMINISCENCES OF LENIN faction of love.' In any case, this liberation of love is neither new, nor Communistic. You will remember that about the middle of the last century it was preached as the 1 emancipation of the heart ' in romantic literature. In bourgeois practice it became the emancipation of the flesh. At that time the preaching was more talented than it is to-day, and as for the practice, I cannot judge. I don't mean to preach asceticism by my criticism. Not in the least. Communism will not bring asceticism, but joy of life, power of life, and a satisfied love life will help to do that. But in my opinion the present widespread hypertrophy in sexual matters does not give joy and force to life, but takes it away. In the age of revolution that is bad, very bad. Young people, particularly, need the joy and force of life. Healthy sport, swimming, racing, walking, bodily exercises of every kind, and many-sided intellectual interests. Learning, studying, enquiry, as far as possible in common. That will give young people more than eternal theories and discussions about sexual problems and the so-called ' living to the full.' Healthy bodies, healthy minds ! Neither monk nor Don Juan, nor the intermediate attitude of the German Philistines. You know, young comrade ? A splendid boy, and highly talented. And yet I fear that nothing good will come out of him. He reels and staggers from one love affair to the next. That won't do for the political struggle, for the revolution. And I wouldn't bet on the reliability, the endurance in struggle of those women who confuse their personal romances with politics. Nor on the men who run after every petticoat and get entrapped by every young woman. No, no ! that does not square with the revolution." Lenin sprang up, banged his hand on the table, and paced the room for a while. 59
