It only took him a couple of weeks to recover and he was willing to go back to the kremlin and pose for cameras showing that he was fine. He even showed where the bullets hit him and the scars they left. This was the height of his career and he was 49. This led to him creating the international convention of communist to stimulate communist revolution in the rest of the work. The communist revolution of the world didn't come but in 1921 the red army defeated the anti-communist parties and Lenin was the undisputed ruler of Russia, which was now a devastated country. With this He knew he had to rebuild and it was hard to rebuild when a famine and a drought spread through Russia. This effected 27 million people throughout Russia. Lenin jump started the economy by abandoning socialism and letting farmers sell the crops they had. They also let them keep the profits which was Lenin's Strategic Retreat. It was a success throughout and helped Lenin's popularity. This was one of the last big acts by Lenin because by the end of that year he suffered from Insomnia, Nausea, and Fainting. He retired to his rural retreat east of Moscow. Here he suffered his first stroke and continued to collapse politically and physically. He had a second stroke at the age of 51 and he could barely move or talk now, but still tried to influence the government with his written words in a diary. Before he could make any changes he ended up suffering a third stoke. No one knew about his fatal conditions except for these main leaders of the communist party. He saw how Stalin was in terms of power and he created his last testament to crush Stalin but I was never finished and never got to carry out his last order. [ 9 ] He finally died on January 21, 1924 at the age of 53. Most of Russia didn't know he was sick so most were shocked by the news of his death. Since he moved so many, he had a funeral that lasted 5 days and over three quarters of a million people wanted to go visit his body that was in state.
One of the most powerful symbols of that tradition is to be found on a parcel of land which lies roughly between the site of the old Tyburn gallows and the Reform Tree in London’s Hyde Park. There for over a century men and women, some famous (including Karl Marx, William Morris, Vladimir Lenin, George Orwell, Marcus Garvey and Lord Soper) but most not, have dissented and denounced, canvassed and converted, preached and proselytised, and in so doing given expression to the fundamental rights of citizens to gather together to hear and be heard.
