Russian Revolution:
Pre-Rev – Nicholas II last russian czar in 1884
Serfs – 2 groups, very rich and very poor.
they received a hut, small land and couple animals.
for a communist government to work, people would have to be forced into working.

Bloody Sunday

angered serfs and workers
January 22, thousands of people marched on Winter Palace to as Czar Nicholas for reforms (for a change)
Troops shot people in the crowd, how the name came. riots became more often

Time for Change
1917, riots in the streets. everyone wanted change
Groups over ran police and military couldnt stop riots
Czar Nicholas was forced to give up his throne
After that, his family was captured and murder

BOLSHEVIKS – Change (Lenin)
MENSHEVIKS – Monarchy , preserve Czar Nicholas

Lenin brings communism to Russia
1917 Vladimir Lenin pushed over the gov and Communists took control of Russia
czar Nicholas and the family were executed
1922 Lenin renamed it the Soviet Union
Joined Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Georgia, and Ukraine

My results mostly point towards a Liberal stance,. My definition of being liberal is being open minded to change, open minded to new ideas, and are more tolerant of thoughts and actions of others; they arent very bound to the traditions. My definition on conservative is they like to keep it traditional and not a big fan about changes, typically into politics or religion. Based on the defintions, I definitely agree Im more Liberal. Im more of a into change person, and Im not really bound to religion and basing my decision. I like to bring in new ideas and and stay open minded towards other ideas and ations as well,
