    Yup. And networking would inevitably involve vodka. All major decisions would eventually involve vodka in USSR.

      One of Stalin’s failures almost any tankie won’t deny.

        Vodka had been linked to the Russian economy under multiple Czars. I’m not sure that Stalin could have separated the two even if he had wanted to. Admittedly it doesn’t appear that he wanted to.

        I’m pretty sure that the USSR was screwed the moment that Lenin returned from exile in Germany, or when Wilson was elected. Take your pick.

        The Menchaviks would have been a better government.

          I just find it ironic that Stalin was everything that the party worried about Trotsky becoming.

          The mechaviks literally wanted to continue ww1 and have a psuedo democracy where the bourgeoisie were literally guaranteed a majority of seats, wtf are you talking about?

            I wasn’t aware of that. I was under the impression they were less extreme than the Bolsheviks, and didn’t want to execute everyone that wasn’t a hard core Bolshevik

              They were more extreme than the bolseviks but less extreme than the monarchists, they were just on the side of capitalists so were painted with a nicer brush by capitalist historians

                Gotcha, that explains why the sources I have read, showed them as favorable to the Menchaviks
