    Blanquism is an authoritarian, economically left ideology and revolutionary strategy based off the ideas of Louis Auguste Blanqui. It advocates for a socialist revolution to take place by a coup d'état orchestrated by a small group of secretive conspirators, and the aforementioned small group should push socialism using state power. It opposes Marxism and populism but still sees communism as a desirable end goal.

    Alleged Connections to Lenin and Leninism

    Orthlen.png Leninism has often been compared to Blanquism, usually by left-wing critics of it. Luxem.png Rosa Luxemburg was one of the first to make the comparison, due to Lenin's vanguardism, and his favoring of highly centralized and repressive governance[1]. Modern day Councom.png council communists, Libsoc.png libertarian socialists and Ancom.png anarcho-communists also often criticize Leninism as being similar to Blanquism. Lenin himself rejected this comparison, and was heavily critical of Blanquism, as he said, "We have always heard a chorus of accusation that we were too inflexible and ossified, too adamant. And yet our opponents call us “Blanquists”, “anarchists” and “true socialists”. The Blanquists are conspirators (they have never been in favour of the general strike), they exaggerate the importance of revolutionary government"[2] and "To become a power the class-conscious workers must win the majority to their side. As long as no violence is used against the people there is no other road to power. We are not Blanquists, we do not stand for the seizure of power by a minority. We are Marxists, we stand for proletarian class struggle against petty-bourgeois intoxication, against chauvinism-defencism, phrase-mongering and dependence on the bourgeoisie"[3].
