Vladimir Lenin was the first Premier of the Soviet Union, having seized power as the leader of the Bolshevik Party in the October Revolution of 1917. His political and economic theories were based on the teachings of Karl Marx, and gave rise to a particular branch of Communism now known as Leninism.

Lenin believed that workers should unite into armed revolution to overthrow the rule of a capitalist and imperialist elite, as attempting to work within the system to achieve empowerment of the proletariat was doomed to failure, because the ruling class could manipulate the economy by exploiting imperial wealth to keep the workers happy and docile.

At least that's my understanding of it given 5 minutes of research on the web. Either way, he was all for the workers uniting to overthrow the rulers.

2014-05-31 Rerun commentary: The "that's what I wanted to talk to you about" refers to the previous strip in this theme, in which Fireballs informs Choking that Wrestled To Death By Steve has been wrestled to death by Steve. So he's concerned about the disability situation caused by working such a hazardous job.

Though honestly, if you take on Steve, you get what you deserve.
