    That looks more like beating down oppression.

    (I'm working on the assumption that the animal with the tiger body and the two human heads is an allegory for oppression.)

    More like "breaking away the rats that are the enemies of our order!" that is so typical for these posters.

    Im sure the next time will be the time it doesnt devolve into top heavy oppression and abuse by a government lord rather than a corporate lord. Like 5th or whatever time is the charm.

    The key is to realise when you gotta drop it; look at China, and then compare to Soviet Union.

    How can there be oppression when there's a party?

    If I were Quackers I would point out that even though red is the color of revolution only Americans use red cups at parties. (while screaming "whooooo")

    The key is to realize that you can't shortcut around the rise and fall of capitalism to get there.

    That's a meat tenderizer. Boiling meat tends to make it chewy. :p

    Are the two heads supposed to represent specific people? They look familiar, or maybe not.

    I specifically had Lyndon B. Johnson in mind.

    The whole Cultural Revolution was lost in a palace coup, how ironic...

    Y'know, I think this is pretty overblown.

    Look at how backwards those Russians are in their treatment of gays!!! Something must be done...NOW!!!!

    I mean they must be what...ten years behind the times? Five?

    It isn't like they've maintained slavery a hundred years after it was abolished everywhere else...oh, wait, a lot of the world hasn't got that completely sorted yet either, even after a century or two.

    I'm all for fair treatment and equal rights for all sexual orientations, but the singlemindedness of constantly pounding Russia when they could take about half a step and completely catch up on something that hasn't been right anywhere for even half a generation is pretty silly to me.

    One issue wonderism, at its finest.

    I don't doubt that there are plenty of Russians who could point to things that were better under USSR.
