it only takes 3% of the country to over turn it in a Communist Revolution.

Three percent.

There was a lot of bullshit the Russians were going through up to the red revolution that made it pretty easy for the bolsheviks to tip the tide in their favor in 1917. The oligarchy was an aristocrat class and gave 0 thought to the average farmer. They appeased the working class by making them feel they had a voice in government but made no actual decisions which only angered them further. This went back and forth until WWI broke out, which also led to a massive spanish flu outbreak which was the mutated version of the original spanish flu. After WWI the oligarchy turned it's aim to the pesky communists which resulted in Lennon fleeing to England, the red revolution and eventual civil war the oligarchy lost.

Could we see history repeating itself? We're ran by pretty much a banana republic where our government happily sells out the middle class as long as it lines their pockets to which modern day communists would call an oligarchy. We've got the plandemic, people itching for civil war, on the brink of another world war, and people openly calling for a communist revolution.

Communism didn't pop up in Russia over night. They saw a weak country, pushed a political change the average russian could get behind, waited for the country to get weaker and went full civil war when they saw their chance.

I just remember in my research into the red revolution that after WWI Lenin was forced to flee to England because the oligarchy was gunning for his head, which added fuel to the fire that was already raging out of control.
