    Very interesting posters. My favorite is the wine glass hidden in the wrench.

  2. Hajdul says:

    On the first picture, is there a pepsi bottle?

  3. Testicules says:

    I can see by the current level of alcoholism, that these posters were very effective. Cheers to the artist and producers of this propaganda.

    That first guy is not a drunk (meaning, the guy in the first photo; I don’t know the status of the commenter here named “First”) — you clearly see he is only drinking Vodka because he finished all his delicious, non-alcoholic, Capitalist Pepsi, and he can get no more due to Cold War.

    Remember, kids: Cold War Kills!

  5. George Johnson says:

    That one about the book vs. the pub is funny. Didn’t the soviets burn most of the books and kill off most of the teachers during their revolution?? I mean, book learning was a bad thing.

    Either way, this is the only way to overcome a problem like this. You can’t force people to stop. Only a campaign to make it a bad thing will make people stop. (most anyway)

      no they didn’t, you dumb fool.

      PS. people who “hate communism” can go and die. no1 cares about you.

    • CZenda says:

      The bitter paradox is that the poster seems to suggest that even the poorest trash of the society (the cornerstone of Lenin´s revolution) can become an educated kulak (hated and mercilessly murdered “rich” countryman) by quitting drinking.

    As much as I hate Communists, this anti-alcohol posters are excellent, maybe with the exception of the one about the Evil Speculator.

    I loved the Soviet Union. The country advanced 50 years in just a decade due to the Marxist emphasis on egalitarianism (women’s rights), education (literacy), and employment (Magnitogorsk, etc.). Of course, nothing is perfect. There are just as many social ills in the U.S. today (drugs!).

    Then why did it fail genius?

  9. Archy Bunka says:

    After 50 glorious years, please tell me ONE non-military or non-alcoholic product of quality, that the USSR produced and exported? Name one?

  10. Doomer says:

    and a lot of smart men
    because US lacks smart people

    USSR collapsed because of the Cold War, Afghan War (that it couldn’t afford on top of the Cold War) and falling oil prices. Corruption contributed to it too, but this could be fixed if dirty politicians didn’t start ripping the country apart, pushing it to civil war and eventually destroying it for their own private gain. In the USSR, a lot of effort went into making the people better human beings (like in Star Trek). Today, the politicians’ goal is to continue stealing as much as possible for as long as possible. The abundance of natural resources and the population that swims in vodka and doesn’t give a damn help the cause. Very simple.

      You are an intelligent Comrade.

      • Archy Bunka says:

        Please. The system that survived WW2 couldn’t overcome Afghanistan? The system was corrupt during communism and after the fall, you write this yourself. So what is the difference? USSR fell because it was founded on an economic system that does not work and could only sustain itself for a few years. Communism, on a huge scale, don’t work. All the USSR did, was produce weapons. Even your vaunted space program, is defense related. USSR never manufactured 1 non-defense related product and exported. not 1. Russia is a grand place, but how some of you can sing of socialisms praise, makes me question your sanity.

    The quality of the artwork in these is really amazing; I love the Soviet styles of poster art. Some really clever images.

    Soviet graphic design – superior as ever!
    Please, more soviet posters!
