just remember, apparently your best argument for the soviet union is: "it was better than tsarist russia." that's uh not exactly the standard we're aiming for bud.

yeah that's not really what happened. in reality, a bunch of small-minded men held back the revolution because they believed in vanguardism, and then shit sucked in central asia for a long time. the people who fought and died to make the world a better place were the anarchists who fought and died at kronstadt and in the ukraine.
