Why did Karl Marx and Marxism have such an influence on Soviet Russia and not other countries?
Why was Russia the only country to submit to Marxism? Obviously other countries were communist, but for different reasons. I want to know why it had such a huge affect on Russia?
The ruling aristocracy was weak, the peasants were angry and desperate and the revolutionaries were well organized and got help from outside.
The same thing happened in China, as I recall.
It didn't happen in the UK because the ruling aristocracy wer a lot stronger, they made sure that the revolutionaries didn't get organized and the peasants (ordinary people) were not angry and desperate enough to risk what they had got in a revolution.
If you check out my hub about Mortgages and the Middle Ages, you can see more of where I am coming from.
I believe that mentally Russian people are more future oriented than any other nation. Karl Marx wrote about the future, so it was easier for his ideas to be adapted in Russia.
