Maybe the Tzar was popular, but the revolution, even in the country, tells the tzarism was no longer popular with peasants. The peasants weren't the revolutionaries. With most people it wasn't the monarchy they were dissatisfied with as much as it was the monarch . Only small minority of white want...

local families' patriarchs could rule like little despots without any control of the violences and the old generations always tried to lock and keep the youth quiet and steady inside the village, opposing the departure and any new things from outside. This could in a way describe the villages in Ru...

I don't mean to get personal Eriss but I think you're idealizing the Makhnovists a lot... Their main activity during the civil war was looting and killing people as far as I am concerned. It's not because they were better organized than most bandit gangs roaming the country side at the time that th...

Peasant were living in democratic courts: the soviets. Anarchists helped them organising to be less selfish and think in unity of all soviets, rather than just the village. It wasn't the utopia you are making it seem, not all villages lived like this, and it wasn't universallly accepted. A big prob...

I wish I could write on English better, I have a lot to say in this topic, but can not find best english words. But the point being made about Whites not having plan to run country, just worrying about war was why i meant earlier saying Reds were in best position if they won war. As andatiep said pe...

How so? If whites had won early, a Kadet and SR government would have been elected, as it was before the war. If whites had won late, a firm right-wing dictatorship would have been the most likely outcome. Anyway, the internal conflicts among the whites were no way strong enough to provoke an armed...

I don't see how the Bolsheviks won my mind. I have no love of them, i am orthodox, i give money for memorials to victims of Bolsheviks, but if they were defeated all other factions would be fighting for years to come. Bolsheviks were the only strong enough to eventually control all. Which is of cour...

Suppressing the revolt was seen as wrong by many, a consequence of abuse of power from the Bolsheviks. From what I have read it was a revolt caused by the Bolshevik abuse of power and authority, i.e the Cheka. Is that democratic? I think this discussion belongs more in the historical debate section...

One warning: Carey is a bit of a bigot, and his repeated put-downs of everything not American can become quite tedious if one is not American, or even if (in my case) he is American.
