In general, I agreed with this article (https://en.internationalism.org/ir/96/leninists) about the origins of Leninism and the cult of Lenin. However in reading Trotsky, he also uses the term "Leninism" without qualification and calls himself a Leninist as his followers also call themselves Leninists. His followers also call themselves Trotskyists. What were the main reasons why Trotsky failed to see through the Stalinist personality cult of Lenin? Also why did Trotsky allow a sort of personality cult to develop around him?
