Sorry, Lenin's paper was published in January 4 and 6, 1923. In einer eMail vom 15.10.2006 23:19:49 Westeuropäische Sommerzeit schreibt Dogangoecmen@AOL.COM: Dear Jerry, I agree with you that he HAS BEEN subject of discussions in the past. So for example at beginning of the 20th century and after World War II up to 1970s. But contemporarily, except few exceptions there is hardly any systematic research among academics.* And these few exceptions are almost nothing compared to that what Owen has to say about our contemporary world and how to change it. My reference to Lenin points to his article 'On Co-operation', in Selected Works, vol. 3, pp. 813-819. It is not an explicit statement of Lenin's. I am deducing it from what he says about the role of co-operation in building socialism after having seized the political power. However in this context he refers to Owen explicitly. (p. 818) * Ian Donnachie, Robert Owen, Tuckwell Press 2000. Edward Royle, Robert Owen and the Commencement of the Millennium, Manchester University Press1998.

His work has been a subject of discussion among anarchists (see e.g. Marie Louise Berneri _Journey Through Utopia_*). > But having seized power, even Lenin suggested that one must return > now to Owen to learn how to build a socialist society or in Owen’s > words a New Moral World. What year did de suggest that? In solidarity, Jerry * Boston, The Beacon Press, 1951; London, Routledge & Kegan Paul Ltd., 1950.
