Who would you be in 1917 Russia?

Postby Soviet Tankistan » Fri Aug 23, 2019 2:58 pm

Based on this quiz: https://arzamas.academy/materials/1269
During the revolution, there were many factions trying to gain rule. In short, there were the revolutionary Bolsheviks, Mensheviks, and Socialist Revolutionaries against the capitalist and reactionary forces such as Cadets and the more radical ultranationalists. These factions fought and debated until the Bolshevik victory. But which one would you be on and support? Feel free to post results and discuss the revolution. I believe it was inevitable and the Bolsheviks won rightly.

I don't really care for any of the factions in the Russian revolution. If I had to pick one it would probably be the Green Army.

Even the apologists of industrialism have been obliged to admit that some economic evils follow in the wake of the machines. These are such as overproduction, unemployment, and a growing inequality in the distribution of wealth. But the remedies proposed by the apologists are always homeopathic. They expect the evils to disappear when we have bigger and better machines, and more of them. Their remedial programs, therefore, look forward to more industrialism.

I got Menshevik Centrist. Kinda accurate, I guess? Although I consider myself a socdem.

Either way, as a Latvian dude, I think, that I wouldn't be with either side.

Left SR.
With the beginning of the Revolution, a left oppositionist fraction formed in the Socialist-Revolutionary (SR) Party. They were for a swift end to the imperialist war; rapidly giving land to the peasants; and halting support for the Provisional Government, which they proposed be replaced by a ’uniform socialist’ one. This group was headed by Boris Kamkov and Maria Spiridonova. Soon after the October Coup, the Left SRs joined the Council of People’s Commissars together with the Bolsheviks, at which point they formed the Party of Left SR-Internationalists. In the general list of the Constituent Assembly they received 40 of the party’s 715 deputy mandates. The Left SRs left the Council of People’s Commissars after the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk was signed with Germany, although they continued to work in the Soviets and the ranks of the Council until July 6, 1918.

I am as libertarian socialist as it gets, so I am far away from all the factions in 1917 Russia according to the test, but if I seriously had to choose, it would be either the Anarchists or the Left SR.

A Communist guerilla turned officer who ended up sent to the Gulag for calling Stalin a Fascist, then got let out of the gulag because the Red Army desperately needed officers. Then I would be shot for being too popular. (Read: Having 3 fans)

I have a strong feeling we would both fight together in many trenches, and smash rocks together in many gulags.

I'm far away politically from any of the factions. But if I had to choose a side, the White Russian Army even though the quiz doesn't feature them anywhere. If I have to pick a faction from the quiz - The Black Hundreds.
What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
