I thought I would check my facts. The economy, in 1918 Russia was really, really bad. It was the end of WWI and that was disaster for Russia. I was flat out wrong about that one.

Basically, it had little to do with tyranny and rich people and a lot to do with a completely failed economy.

As far as "Socialist" endeavors are concerned. I tend to believe that they are "social" endeavors. Not all that sure about them being Socialist. We can battle over this all day, neither of us are going to change. I believe that there can be simple 'social' interactions that work and really need not be politicized.
