Can you expound on that? I have some nebulous memory that Lenin was somewhat better and at least more ideologically motivated rather than wholly by power but I don't actually know enough to know why that memory is there

2

u/AProperLigga Sep 23 '22 edited Sep 23 '22

He was slightly better than Stalin, but he was still responsible for Red Terror, essentially a genocide of all his political opponents and their supporters. Stalin is worse because he was exterminating potential opponents and the people who might potentially support his future opponents. You could be a total loyalist and end up shot because Stalin saw literally everyone not personally appointed by himself, and plenty of those appointed by himself, as a threat.

Lenin was brutal but had ideological motivations, Stalin just wanted to feel personally safe and powerful when everyone hated, feared or ridiculed him. All of them are a tragedy compared to much more moderate (RELATIVELY) S-R party, Kadet party, and other Mensheviks who the Bolsheviks exterminated of exiled.

2

u/woah-im-colin Sep 23 '22

Lenin was no where near as bad as Stalin you’re definitely reaching now. Lenin was an revolutionary, Stalin was a opportunistic criminal. Lenin has blood of the bourgeoisie and opposition on his hands for sure and I’m not claiming him to be a “mythical good despot” but the man gave a shit about the people. Based on the time and circumstances Lenin was a godsend for Russians.

That’s fair. I mean, if we talk about America, there are still more than half of us who are horrified about what’s happening. But of course that leaves a lot of people who just let it go, or actively pursue the ugliness of Trump and his ilk.

I suspect a lot of Russians do not like Putin and do not care for this pointless war, but I don’t live there.

I'm really curious as to what occurred in between the jump cut. If we could take him at his word that he was going to join the next day, there wouldn't be a need to force him to do it.

I was also going to guess that this was a case where the troopers were just taking people against their will regardless of their stance at an anti-mobilization rally. However, the presence of the crowd of people who were recording him kind of suggests that my guess is wrong.

269

u/darkslide3000 Sep 22 '22

Yeah, while it looks funny this is most likely a case of "got to close to a protest and the goons confused him with a protestor" (and drag him off to jail, not the frontlines), not "change of mind".

u/darkslide3000 Sep 23 '22

Jesus Christ people, this is an arrest, not an enlistment process. They don't drag people off the street for enlistment like in some cheap dystopia movie. They send them a letter and then if they refuse to show up they go find them at home, not on a public square.

Right but why fight it then? Literally, they are taking him away and by tomorrow he will be enlisted. He's getting everything he says he wants.

I don't think this is as rational as a lot of people are making it out to be. This guy is not happy about going.

11

u/ZSpectre Sep 23 '22

When I think about it a little, being forced to go a day early on the spot versus preparing themselves to volunteer for the next day could make a pretty big difference. There may be a good number of things that people may need to make sure are well taken care of before going to war. Also, they'd no longer be able to have that last dinner or say goodbye to their family, friends, and/or pets in person.

6

u/amitym Sep 23 '22

I mean he's out for his last dinner right now, his bro there is the guy he's going to say goodbye to. After that it's boot camp. He's out of time.

Unless.

Unless he wasn't actually going to enlist tomorrow after all! (surprised Pikachu face)

u/Randy_Tutelage Sep 23 '22

Because it's much easier to talk big and tough when it's other people going to fight. He was lying, he doesn't want to go to war. He wants other people to go to war and he can stay home and safe. I don't see anyone saying this guy is rational, he's just a chicken hawk. That's not uncommon at all in many populations throughout history. When he said he's for mobilization he means for everyone else but him, he's just lying when he says he is willing to fight. I mean that's the whole point of this sub, he didn't think the leopards were going to eat HIS face.

2

u/amitym Sep 23 '22

Right but he literally says he himself is going to go tomorrow. That is what this comment chain is discussing. A lot of people are trying to rationalize how that could still fit with his not wanting to be dragged off and conscripted. Which doesn't make sense to me. (Nor to you.)

3

u/Randy_Tutelage Sep 23 '22

He wasn't telling the truth when he said he was going tomorrow. It makes sense. The woman asked if he was for the war and mobilisation and he said he supports it and lies about leaving tomorrow. He's lying about going tomorrow to make it seem like he is putting his money where his mouth is in response to the woman's questions. And then when it's really time to put his money where his mouth is when the police tell him to come with them the reality hit him like a ton of bricks and maybe this whole war thing isn't a great idea.

u/A_giant_dog Sep 23 '22

I didn't plan on going to Iraq or Afghanistan either, I just wanted college money and to work on Helicopters.

It's a huge shock to the system to be yelled at, far away from your home, no friends, being exhausted and getting woken up at midnight to run around the room for no reason, making a mistake while making your bed and finding all your stuff thrown around the barracks etc. We slept in an open bay with 40 beds in a row so there's no privacy. Also there's guys who just turned 18 and they are living with some 30 year old who had to join to stay out of jail.

The drill seargents break you down by insulting you, telling you that your girlfriend is probably cheating on you, your mom is happy you left, shit like that...for an 18 year old kid it hits hard when you realise you can't leave.

Why are such psychologically traumatising "training methods" supported? Do sergeants just enjoy bulling people?

u/Redrooster549 Sep 23 '22

I dont think they enjoy it. I think they look at themselves as a father figure. They have to make you strong. They have to get rid of bad tendencies that you've learned in the past, and the only way to make people pay attention sometimes is to make them realise that they don't know everything and to trust your teammates. Every night when the drill seargents leave, the guys form more of a community and work together to stay out of trouble. It's like having a common enemy brings people together.

I really don't think they enjoy it because as you go through the training they get progressively nicer and more respectful. They give you nicknames and make you know that you're seen. By the end of training sometimes it's like a proud dad at graduation. He'll at the end of training we had guys out in a crowd doing impressions if each drill sergeant while they watched and laughed.

I’m genuinely curious why they arrested him?

6

u/Joliet_Jake_Blues Sep 22 '22

I think they were just "helping" him get on the bus to go to army

2

u/LisaMikky Sep 23 '22

Maybe their instructions were "Arrest all the activists and anyone speaking to the press. Ask questions later".

u/aetonnen Sep 23 '22

Y’know what, you’re probably not wrong.

How is it "defending Russia" if you're being sent OUT of Russia to bolster an invasion of another country?

u/Astra7525 Sep 22 '22

Is that the pro-war guy that was arrested by police for being at an anti-war protest?

With subtitles and no actual sound to be verified how do we know whats going on here?

u/DuckfordMr Sep 22 '22

Well, they’re speaking Russian, so most people wouldn’t be able to verify it themselves anyways.

They let him go without as much as a warning, he's fine, unfortunately, while other arrested people still wait for the court hearings.

Reminds me of Tom Cruise in Live, Die, Repeat. Was willing to spit out the propaganda until he had to actually put the boots on. Sadly I don't think this conscript is going to come out the other side of this as a time traveling supersoldier.

The fact that he claimed to be pro-war while in a public space and on camera doesn't convince me it was truthful.

It was Russian mothers of soldiers in Afghanistan that ended that war.

Let's see if they can do it again.
