On the Centenary of the Russian Revolution(s)

Yes indeed. This is the year of the hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution(s) -- the first was in March that overthrew the Czar, the second was in October (November) that overthrew the provisional government and initiated the Soviet Union.

The anniversary is largely ignored in the USofA, but in Russia and much of the rest of the world, the Russian Revolution(s) are being closely studied and evaluated critically

In the US, there has been an ongoing obsession with supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the revival of some sort of anti-"Soviet" propaganda to counter "Trumpism." This is beyond foolish as it has led to an even greater level of Fascist resurgence -- in the US and Europe particularly. WTF, indeed.

In light of what's going on, I would just post "October" -- Sergei Eisenstein's 10th Anniversary examination of the Revolutions of 1917.
