    The Revolutions of 1917- what the dreamers of the 60s-80s dreamt of (Chernyshevsky, Bakunin, Herzen, Vasulich, Figner, Kropotkin, Plekhanov, Tkachev).

    • Ted says:

      Not a dream, a nightmare. Brothers killing thousands of brothers, the destruction of infrastructure, the destruction of a whole class of people, loss of every educated and knowledgeable person in the country, and a lead in to decades of oppression.

    Yeah, and like almost ALL “revolutions”, they were lied to. Follow us and we’ll give you this! We’ll give you that! Democracy for all!!! Then you find out the truth, that it’s really a single guy leading everybody into a dictatorship.
