Lenin the unwitting prophet: Backward Europe and Advanced Asia

In a piece from the time of the communist international, called ‘Backward Europe and Advanced Asia’:

The comparison sounds like a paradox. Who does not know that Europe is advanced and Asia backward? But the words taken for this title contain a bitter truth.

  1. Europa or Asia we are all consuming, and making things from what God gave us thinking we are getting more like Lucifer thought he was getting more. Asia is making more by Satan’s point of view, and that is all.

  2. Europe or Asia does not make any difference in Gods eyes. we are all consuming, and making things from what God gave us thinking we are getting more like Lucifer thought he was getting more. Asia is making more by Satan’s point of view, and that is all.
