The Origins of Feminism: Lenin

Stacy McCain finds a real gem.

The communist economy does away with the family. In the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat there is a transition to the single production plan and collective social consumption, and the family loses its significance as an economic unit. The external economic functions of the family disappear . . . In the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat the family economic unit should be recognised as being, from the point of view of the national economy, not only useless but harmful. The family economic unit involves (a) the uneconomic expenditure of products and fuel on the part of small domestic economies, and (b) unproductive labour, especially by women, in the home — and is therefore in conflict with the interest of the workers’ republic in a single economic plan and the expedient use of the labour force (including women).  --Kollontai, quoted at The Other McCain

Yah.  Note especially (b) above.

Who's "Kollontai"?

She was one of Lenin's bitches, elevated to "Kommissar" in the Party. 

"Feminism" was simply another name for 'class warfare', the Marx/Lenin prescription for war on Right Order.

Handy little factoid.
