Lost details of this game . . .

Hello, I purchased this game back at the beginning of 2013 (see thread http://www.ageod-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=190&t=28300) but I have lost both the download and the security key in relation to it. It does not appear in my library of games under the Unified Log In system. Is there anything yo...

Unable to launch game . . .

I purchased Pride of Nations on Steam 3-4 years ago and I am now trying to re-install it (along with the 4xDLC) on a new hard drive. The install process seems to work perfectly OK and I have an icon on my desktop and I can access the manual. But when I try to launch the game it tells me the game is ...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Was he serious? I understand what he was meaning, but that's insulting democracy, here he continues the bourgeois propaganda, I don't see any difference. Try: Read this but replace Lenin by other common bourgeois president... Perfect republican propaganda. Yes, he was serious. He was talking about ...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

It was the bolsheviks who wanted a Constituant Assembly , they had it 2 times, and each time they were not elected, the Socialists won. The Whites wanted the bolsheviks to apply what the bolsheviks did ask! The Bolsheviks, along with the other socialist parties, were demanding a Constituent Assembl...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Yes, and those soviets, of all Russia (at least), voted for a bourgeois-like State (I'm not pleased to write that) in very end 1917, not for a dictatorship, even of 'workers'. Some anarchists, very start of 1918, asked by bolsheviks, where happy to destroy this state , they didn't see it was giving...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

There was no 'democracy' since bolsheviks took the power: They wanted to legitimate the taken by the votes, but the Socialists won*. So bolsheviks cancelled the votes, and later tampered the counts (Stalin invented nothing, he just applied this in the Party too). SR soon fought the bolsheviks for t...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Yes, in 1922 Lenin had eliminated all what was not bolshevik, he didn't need any longer the badly reputed Cheka. Yes, Stalin used the GPU to clean the Party like Trotsky and Lenin did on people. I don't think it is remotely credible to blame Lenin for the situation in Russia in 1922. The country ha...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

I don't think so, the difference would be on the Party, it would change nothing for people in Russia or in the world. Stalin did not invente the purges, Lenin and his Cheka made as many deaths than Stalin per year , but Stalin applied them on the party too, not just on others. The Cheka was abolish...

Re: What if they kept Lenin in exile?

Another really interesting "what if" question about Lenin is what if he had lived for another ten or twenty years. I think we can certainly say that Stalin would definitely not have become leader of the Russian Communist Party and that his policy of "socialism in one country" wou...

Political units - how are these used? Presumably they are political commissars? River barges - do these just tra...

Mainly anarchists. But I read them because since long I was very often said being one, so I was curious about them.

Re: What if they had kept Lenin in exile

Re: What if they had kept Lenin in exile

It was about Lenin alone, Trotsky wants to make us believe he might alone have decided this coup. Trosky was not as a political genius than Lenin (if he were, he would be later in place of Stalin..) No, I think he is saying the opposite. Trotsky did not think that the revolution would have occurred...

Russian provisionnal governement, who was to continue the WWI with the Entente, had a real good reason to prevent Lenin return.

IGOUGO is when you complete your moves on your own PC (move + combat) and then send the completed turn portion to your opponent - or hand it over to the AI. There is usually also a turn resolution element, but in effect, you move/fight etc with no interaction. A good eg of this is GGs War in the Ea...
