[2014] Warren Wagner: RUSSIA COMMUNIST REVOLUTION GLOG

RUSSIA'SCOMMUNISTREVOLUTION

The public response to this was to overthrow Tsar(king) Nicholas II. They succeeded in the 'Febuary Revolution'

It started when Russia started printing millions of Ruble Notes (currency). This caused massive inflation but workers saw no change in pay. People couldn't afford to feed themselves. It took mountains of money to buy one loaf of bread.

The Communist movement was an effort to create a moneyless, classless society where everyone shares the wealth. To the poor and starving lower class, this 'Down with the King, up with the People' system sounded fantastic

Stalin (left) has a brutal, horrible side, and an amazingly effective ruler side. With the famines, purges and harsh crime punishments, he was responsible for OVER 40 MILLION deaths, for a comparison, Hitler's Halucaust was responsible for 12 million deaths. On the other hand, just as Russia was becoming irrelevant, he turned Russia into a strong and modern world power.
