amazing number...

translation mistake 16.Jan.2007 06:46

communist

the quote of Lenin (pic) is translated wrong by my.

It means, word by word: "smash, break, bring to explode!"
In this sense this equals: "smash, break, set free."


mistakes like this can happen when translated from russian into german into english. sorry.

so nice to see that people in Germany read history books!!!

Rosa Luxembourg -- most americans react to that name with shrugged shoulders.

DEX

Luxemburg, Liebknecht, Trotsky = 'real' communists killed by so-called communists.

Stalinism = counter-revolution.

it just takes a little reading indeed.
