    Why there are no sources in the description? When you do such videos you should always name what sources do you use.

  38. Marý

    MarýPred 2 dnevi

    @The mortician The fact that this is taught in school doesn’t change anything about the thing that you need sources for history. Even history books get the information from somewhere. Was the person who made this video present during the revolution? Have he met the people he’s talking about? No, so he used some source to find out what happened. I don’t say the video is wrong but you still have to find the information somewhere. Even how he portrays Lenin. I didn’t meet him, I don’t know how he behaved. However, a lot of people knew him and his personality and they may have written memoirs. Do you get what I mean?

  39. The mortician

    The morticianPred 2 dnevi

    @Marý yeah but, this stuff is taught in schools. It's common knowledge. What would he cite? History books. Sure, maybe some minor details are incorrect, but the majority of the video is accurate.

  40. Marý

    MarýPred 2 dnevi

    @The mortician Of course you need sources. Especially when talking about as controversial and questionable figures as Lenin or Stalin.

    22:47 Absolute bs lol, Trotsky even said Lenin's "Last Testament" was faked. Supposedly Lenin's testament was to put Trotsky in charge lol A paranoid man who distrusted the West? Yeah big surprise he's "paranoid" after the West was constantly trying to overthrow the Soviets! The genocidal Nazis were trying to massacre whole Slavic villages for their Lebensraum ideas... And guess which countries funded the Nazis? UK and US. Henry Ford for example. Massive investment into Nazi Germany.

  50. W Abc

    W AbcPred 3 dnevi

    Yes the elections beat out the Bolsheviks but that was an election of the legislative assembly not the people. The Soviet elections had actual elections of the people

    Not everybody assumed Trotsky lol you're just reciting typical CIA propaganda

  52. W Abc

    W AbcPred 3 dnevi

    Lenin advocated for Russia to fail in WWI so the Bolsheviks could overthrow Russia. He also said Germans should advocate for Germany to fail, to weaken their govt. In a war of imperialist powers it doesnt matter much which one rules, moreso it matters whether you have a real revolution or not. "No one was safe from the violence not even Nicholas himself" Lol average counter-revolutionary

    Not only Middle East but Korea. After Soviets help Korea get liberated, USA nukes Japan as a warning then takes the south, overthrows the govt run by workers, and creates a fascist dictatorship (ROK)
