      As expected, the centenary of the October Revolution has been greeted with a cacophony of distortions and slanders, especially against Lenin and the Bolsheviks. Hundreds of newspaper articles, books as well as TV and radio documentaries, have been produced with this express purpose in mind, all of which talk of coups and the Bolsheviks. This made the government seem weak and made the Bolsheviks popular (they took control of the Soviets). Lenin and the Bolsheviks assumed power in Russia, in because of many reasons. Lenin promised to take farmland away from the rich and give to the poor. He promised and end to the war with Germany if he came to power.
