Contrary

Utopia

In the days leading up up to the Russian Communist Revolution, Nikolai Bukharin was busy promising every comrade that would listen to or read his words that a virtual heaven on earth, even a Utopia, was coming to Mother Russia, when he knew, when he knew for a fact that if he and his fellow Bolsheviks succeeded there would no Heaven at all, only hell, hell, and then more hell.

It was in 1917, right after the communists violently took control when theorist Bukharin decided to unload the brutal truth buried beneath all his benevolent theory to the Russian people:

“We asked for freedom of the press, thought, and civil liberties in the past because we were in the opposition and needed these liberties to conquer. Now that we have conquered, there is no longer any need for such civil liberties.”
