Bolshevik Revolution Was an Escape From Disaster

We Did It!

Sergei Lukin



S E Kurginyan, the leader of the Essence of Time movement, said on 26 October live on-air on the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV show on Pervy Kanal:

The Great October Socialist Revolution saved the country from total collapse and disintegration. The February Revolution marked the collapse of the Russian Empire, followed by many months of troubled times that nearly plunged the country into permanent non-existence. The disaster of February happened, everything began to break down, and this collapse would’ve been total had not the Bolsheviks come.

Kurginyan cited Lieutenant-General A I Denikin (a leading general of the anti-Bolshevik White movement in the Russian Civil War), who recognised that the Bolsheviks, despite their small numbers, had no equals when it came to state-building in 1917:

It turned out that there was a group of about 30,000 or 50,000 people who were extremely passionate, sufficiently educated, and most importantly, and had a dream; it relentlessly removed any obstacles in the way of making this dream a reality. This is why this group rescued everything from the grasp of total collapse and disintegration.

Kurginyan explained:

In this sense, October wasn’t a revolution, but rather a post-catastrophic reintegration. This is what we called “‘falling on an attractor”. This rescue kindled hope for a new social and spiritual future in the whole world. A great flame of a colossal historical hope blazed; therefore, it isn’t serious to say today that it was “an event of minor importance”. The Great October and the Ten Days that Shook the World changed the world in the most fundamental way.
