Troops on the streets At the end of October 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power. Vladimir Raffe's father watched the revolution unfolding on the streets of Moscow: "A young guard walks up and down by the Kremlin gates, bayonet in hand, cigarette in his mouth. Round the corner, in Nikolskaya Street, revolutionaries push a cannon past the Muir and Merrilees department store. The Kremlin gates close. The guards disappear. "That’s how my father remembered the start of the revolution in Moscow.

It's insane to me too people still hold up US flags with pride, after Vietnam, Guantanamo, ... capitalism has costed more lifes than every ideology before. Get off your high horse.
Talks about dark patterns...
Big part of the Bolshevik idea was the collective. Rule of the proletariat, that a single dictator has hijacked it is unfortunate but not a property only communism has. Monarchies are much worse and still alive and kicking.
