It can be argued that serfdom was ended, since after that everyone became serfs (apart from Lenin and his besties).

It can be argued that serfdom was ended, since after that everyone became serfs (apart from Lenin and his besties).
But that would actually mean that serfdom, on the contrary, started, rather than ended.
Thanks for your contribution anyway, which is nice. But actually it would be good if you could explain your statement in more details, and what brings you to both of those conclusions (the two parts of your sentence).
Anyway, serfdom in Russia was officially abolished in 1861, under the Emperor Alexander II.
A common view would most likely be that Lenin's revolution (the October one) was actually to liberate people from serfdom, in a way (since it had been abolished by then) or its other expressions anyway, and to give "ordinary" people rights and freedoms or even powers.
But of course, there could be, and most likely, are, different and non standard approaches to all of that. Which actually serves to create a debate and enriches the topic with various dimensions to it.

Well considering the Russian Revolution ended up with the destruction of worker democracy and the turning on the revolutionary workers themselves (see Kronstadt rebellion) it's a fair point.

Even though I hate communism, I admire Lenin for his heroic seizure of power in the aftermath of the monarchy's overthrow. A veritable exercise in Machiavellian politics.

Indeed. Lenin apparently was a skillful and organized man, probably a persistent one too, and he did not really miss his chance when the opportunity presented itself.
