Oppressed peoples, enslaved to the Capitalist beast, rise from the bottom and revolt for the equality you truly deserve!
I think this is going to trigger some people. Not that that's a bad thing.
You got that right Captain
I wonder why they removed comments for it.I saw even worse for other images...
I must admit this picture is a little misleading. Most Red Army soldiers were conscripts and had little idea what Communism was, they just followed orders.
what do you think a political commissar's main role was during peace-time?
To maintain the loyalty of military commanders to the Communist Party.
Mostly to provide political lectures to soldiers, and giving party memberships to them.
And also the Red Army needed to rely more on old Tsarists Commanders, and reasonably feared a coup - so political commissars were necessary.
Not absolutely. Conscript or not, nationalism, pride for socialist state and Marxist world view was taught since childbirth. Even if person was dense, his values still were ones taken fron his socialist society.
