    Yup, it’s always funny to think how some people think that Russia used to be a ”normal” country until bolshies fricked it up. But nope, bolshevism was just a new coat to the old, true and tried Russian despotism and brutality, nothing new.

    One of the beautiful and tragic things about the Russians is that they are willing to carry out ideologies to their fullest extent, ideologies that other nations pay lip services to but never actually go through with. They understand the harshness of life, and take ideas seriously. Dead seriously. So whereas the ideas of socialism only go so far as a welfare state in the west, the russians actually gave it their best shot (and damn the consequences). Same thing with Putin, whereas westerns live under the heel of their betters and like to pretend they don't, russians just admit "Yeah we live under a strong man, so what? Why hide it?"

      russia is incompetence: the country
      they just swindle their way through life trying to cheat and cover up their mistakes with all means necessary
      this applies to individuals and the government

      An aristocrat widow hangs out with a vain head-in-the-clouds professor. Proferssor's sociopath child and aristocrat's prodigal son come to town with revolutionary ideas and plans, they makes friends in high places and attempt to corrupt the social fabric, they themselves being corrupt already. There's fire, there are murders and there are scandals.
      In the last hundred pages it gets really grim really quickly: The professor dies during his one last physical (and spiritual) voyage to find truth. All he knew in the town was either torched, murdered or spoiled by his sociopath materialist son, who intentionally destroyed his father's ideals like beauty, culture and (almost a) faith in the divine. Aristocrat's son commits suicide as a symbol of wasted potential for a noble life (again, both physically but also spiritually). The aristocrat is briefly mentioned to replace the professor with a Gospel seller, as that's the last person who took care of the professor.

      You're not too much of a brainlet to read it. It's an easy read. It will have an impact on you no matter what.

    >about the Soviet Union
    It's not about the Soviet Union. It's about revolutionaries and materialists. Yes, those are features that we recognize in the USSR, but they are the same features that the Roman Empire recognized in Christians, that Christians recognized in Galileo etc. The work is timeless because it elaborates on revolutionaire's (and establishment) psychology as tropes.
