From the Paper:

"Lenin's work in "State and Revolution" can be debated as historically significant or as a propaganda masterpiece. In many ways, it is a recognition to both of the arguments made. His debate of the Marxist ideals, and many times biased anti-thesis of others debate, is able to portray many sides to the beliefs of Marx and Engels. As a propaganda tool, its knowledge of the actual Marxist information is impeccable and could be credited with sparking one of the most researched revolutions of the twentieth century. The fact that the meaning behind Lenin's text is still being debated is credit enough to the genius that went behind it, no matter what his original message was intended to be."
