Beckham does Lenin

David Beckham is another ignorant celebrity who romanticizes the likes of Vladimir Lenin as so many of them do...never met a dictator they didn't love.

Lenin: A Biography
...a rebel whose devotion to destruction proved greater than his love for the "proletariat" he supposedly served. We see how his intellectual preoccupations and inner rage underwent volatile interaction and propelled his career from young Marxist activist to founder of the communist party and the Soviet state--and how he bequeathed to Russia a legacy of political oppression and social intimidation that has yet to be expunged.
