the Russian revolution was both good and bad, as is the case with most communist uprisings...although the old autocracy that the czars had was toppled and the people enjoyed a few years of prosperity under the communist regime, unfortunately it didnt work for long. due to the clunky nature of the governments system many people starved, in some cases stooping to cannibalism to survive. add to this the fact that anyone who spoke out against the regime were shipped off to Siberia to cut trees down, and the cold war and its easy to see why it all turned to custard.
