This paper examines whether or not “the 1919 Lenin Program of the CPSU (Bolsheviks)” was a manifestation and expression of earlier utopian socialistic thinking. We have divided our paper into three main parts: The first part investigates the utopian socialists and their respectively definition of the perfect society. In the second part we focus on Lenin and the Bolsheviks’ program from 1919, where our main purpose is to compare this with utopian socialists and define both similarities and differences to determine which parts of the program could be seen as an expression of utopian thinking. In the third part we will show how the thoughts of Lenin and the utopian socialists contracts with the actual history of the Soviet. We have used different historical methods in the process of determining our theses. We conclude that the Soviet Union led by Lenin and the Bolsheviks was an utopian project complied to how Thyssen defines the concept utopia.
