history written by the victors
memory of the Civil War to the current generation - it is the stories of witnesses who because of their age live almost gone, that Red Army monuments and movies like "Elusive Avengers".But the history of the Soviet regime in the form in which students studied it in school, written in red ancestors, although the current generation of the descendants of the two opposing forces.Of course, the Red Army men are worthy of memory, only about their opponents, we know too little.But before 1917, many of the red army commanders were also military - officers of the Tsarist Russia.Because of ideological reasons the fact that on the side of the Whites fought yesterday schoolmates red generals silenced.Although under the autho
rity and those and others were the same soldiers and sailors, who yesterday stood behind a plow.And everyone believed that the truth was on their side.
Why Soviets became the main force
honest, even about their red ancestors of modern citizens do not know everything.Has anyone heard of the Finnish Red Guards or Red Chinese, who defended the Murmansk railway?Hardly.Yes, and the social composition of the Whites can tell a little bit, if only to recall stories about rashozhie fists and shopkeepers-the parasites.Meanwhile, these "combat shopkeepers" as well as the Red Army, performed miracles of heroism.
As for the kulaks, there are too many ideological lie.Wealthy farmers grew not by inheritance, but through hard work.And the fact that the majority of the "kulaks" were employees, not always talking about exploitation.Often, employees were almost family - ate with the hosts at the same table and had quite a friendly relationship.Of course, these peasants were not disposed to the Soviet regime - with its surplus, the nationalization of the bank deposits and a firing ban on all trade "with hands".
That's just the Soviet authorities did not bet on wealthy farmers, which would provide the state novozarozhdayuschemusya stable economic future, and the so-called "Peasants" - committees of the poor, consisting of aggressive lumpen who did not want to work hard."Kulaks" were forced either to join the White Army, or to give all their belongings back-breaking toil property.
And what about the urban population?Manufacturing enterprises, which en masse "oppressed" working class, were not always so, as they have drawn in the Soviet history books.Many owners of factories provide diligent workers not only accommodation and food, but also a pension and medical care.But it turned out in the end is the same as that in the village - "the expropriation of the expropriators" and aggressive crowd of workers who are not happy that some of them have more than others.Despite a number of negative aspects, we can not agree that the Soviet government unites people powerful ideology, and this is its main phenomenon.
