Return with us now to those daring days of yore when workers fought to control their lives and create a new world while capitalists fought to keep their power, where Bolsheviks fought with Menshaviks (and SRs, too) to control it all. It was a time when Lenin and his merry men (and women) sought to guide the revolution...and seize the State to boot. There were dashing young men and women in the streets and John Reed looking for love in all the wrong places...or maybe the right ones. Romanovs were on the run, but not for long. There were wars and plots and disguises and German spies, and dark trains rumbling in the night. There were revolutionaries and counter revolutionaries and Tsars and Tsarinas and workers and soldiers and sailors, too. All of this and more is yours now in Scission's Theoretical Weekend. So sit back and enjoy the ride (or mourn what could have been) and a special thanks to prole.info for delivering this fascinating bit of history.
