uhhhhhhhhhhhh ok. When does the devil quote scripture? Jesus quoted scripture to fight the devil, I can’t imagine the devil is capable of accurately quoting scripture. You can acknowledge the devil Lenin, may he burn in hell, if you want. But not me.

Matthew 4 and Genesis 3 but the quote comes from Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice”. What you’re engaging in is a variant of the ad hominem fallacy where in the character of the speaker is used to invalidate his wisdom. Despite his horrible actions, Lenin did manage to overthrow a thousand year old monarchy and replace it with a system that rose to world superpower status. I certainly have neither love nor respect for Lenin but I credit him with the wisdom to know exactly what he was doing. His comments on that have value.
