- Imagine the Russian Revolution never took place. How would this change the course of history?
The Russian Revolution was a period of time when the working class of Russia rebelled against the government. This revolution began in 1917, when Russia was still involved in World War I. The war had caused famine and poverty throughout the country. The people of Russia suffered poor working conditions, long hours, and low pay. In early 1917, the workers decided to go on strike. They were standing up against Russia’s ruler, Tsar Nicholas II. A political party known as the Bolsheviks, led by a man named Vladimir Lenin, was gaining support from the working class. The Bolsheviks believed that communism was the only solution to poverty in Russia. After the protests became too much to handle, Nicholas II was forced to step down from the throne. The Bolsheviks gained power soon after that, and Russia became a communist country.

I am peruvian and during the 80 until early 90s, a couple of terrorist group called MRTA and Sendero Luminoso wanted Peru became a communist country. It caused 20k deaths of innocent people, most of them belonged from the poorest towns. As far as I know, it is not the best way to handle a country. Fortunately, the head was captured and send to jail for life. It is said, that still there are a few people in the peruvian jungle who believe in communism and have connection with people in Europe.

Very useful part
All révolutions always begin when the people suffer. To me, it is very difficult to listen and understand without read but when I do it I understand.
just simple thought that if the revolution never took place then the Russia would still be a monarch country with parliamentary system elected by the people, only if Tsar Nicholas II were willingly agreed with the change. The change that not only Russia will experience but also fellow monarch countries in the region.

This story prove that bad governments encourage revolutions with their decision against pour people and increase their needs to drive them to an extremely situation in which there is not enough food for the totally folk. In the same way, nobody has any opportunity to work for supporting their family. Now, we are going to change in order to avoid another similar state of affairs.
