THE RED TERROR
Unrestrained class warfare is set in motion as a security measure to liquidate enemies of the Bolshevik regime on the flimsiest of grounds. “We must carry along with us 90 million out of the 100 million of Soviet Russia’s population. As for the rest, we have nothing to say to them. They must be annihilated.” This quote from Zinoviev, one of the members of the Politburo (the Bolsheviks’ supreme ruling elite) sums it up. The White Guard forces respond in kind.
Red soldiers hold a banner, which reads, “Death to the bourgeois and their helpers. Long live the Red Terror”
