Well, they gave one of the theoretically best forms of state a shot. Unfortunately it failed in practice, but at least they tried.

Some of the greatest scientific minds came from there as well.

IF it wasnt for their bravery, stoicism, and military might, we might have not been born today.
Funny that people often think this way. If Germany had conquered the entire world, I don't think much would be fundamentally different today from the way it is now (especially when considering the current right-wing conservative trend in politics) Except for world peace, perhaps. :P Not that I approve of what they did; don't get me wrong.

As has been hinted at here, the Russian sense of humour:

Q: How come Brezjnev could travel the world for more than ten years while Andropov, who stayed in Moscow, only lasted a month or so?

A: Bresjnev was a battery operated apparatchnik, whereas the Andropov-model used the regular wall outlet.
(comment on the reliability of the Moscow power grid)  





lmao :)

Almost all of those scientific and technological breakthroughs were courtesy of German scientists and technicians same as the Americans would never have made it to the Moon in 1969 without Dr Braun and his team. At the end of WWII, there was a race between the Allies to capture as much German technology, scientists and key technicians and Stalin is reported as saying "Are their Germans better than ours?" when some of his advisors complained about American advantages in technology.

If you look at it closely, some of the greatest theoretical physicists such as Einstein, Planck, Hahn were German or studied and worked in Germany. It is a great irony that neither the American nor the Soviet A-bombs, H-bombs and space programs could not have been undertaken were it not for German scientists who had either fled because of their Jewish descent or been "persuaded" to work for either the US or the USSR.

Our nation stroke a pretty good deal with CCCP back in 1946:
They would take our corn and in return we would give them our wheat.

Society of the Godless.  :wub:

They also took away some of the redneck area of finland. Too bad they didn't take places like joensuu and ikaalinen, which should be nuked from orbit.

Communism wassent joy

But as the older people at Nal hutta said in Poland to me=In soviet days we had everything we need. Nothing luxury but we had everything. Now we have nothing.

Communism sucks, but Russia is awesome :v  Got myself some nice Russian toys here (Mosin nagant, Nagant M1895 revolver, Vesho-movek Backpack, Kapitan jacket, VDV parade jacket. Belt, Soviet emblems and ofcourse an EPIC USHANKA)

And come to think of it, there are a few additional good things I can say about the CCCP:


1. Free vacations! Some of my grandparents received extended, free vacations in the rolling, endless woods of Siberia. Of course, transportation there was free, in luxurious cattle-wagons.

2. A lucky few of them even got free real-estate. Unfortunately it was below ground level and rather confined.

3. The dear CCCP gave us the wonderful gift of communism, and we got stuck with it for 50 years.


Don't you just love them?

yeah, this vacation pack was very popular at that time as my grandparents got that too!

Heh, people, you know nothing about USSR, as I see... you know only things you can see on your TV. Do you still believe in anything, that modern TV shows you?
Empire of Evil? Huh, look on another big country then.

Even US has more prisoners today than we have in Stalin times, if you dont know. Really. Funny, huh?
BTW, that Stalin died in 1953, too many years ago. Russians live without him too many years, maybe its finally time to forgot about Stalin? Or you want to resurrect him?
Also, about numbers: in 1941 USSR have 196 millions of citizens, so, if you hear something like "Stalin killed 50 or 100 millions", this is just weird lie - just because this not physically possible.

For me, USSR is my homeland, I`m born here. Years in USSR, my child years, one of the best, even with all problems we have. Atleast, we have not bad life, we have guaranteed paid work in any city, free medicine, free study, cheap permits on sea resorts, great science, future. There is no "KGB", "GULAG" or other propahanda shit around any corner, as you used to think. Just our own life.
Now we have nothing. No future. Russia is finally falling. We lost 15 millions of people in 20 years, just like in big war. Do you happy?
European level of life is falling too in last years - just because no need to compete with USSR anymore.

Not all people get their vacation for free. Some earned it - for sabotage, murdering, serving to nazy forces, robbing, stealing.
