Photographs of Everyday Life in the Soviet Union

In this regard, US Cold War rhetoric maybe convincingly conceived of as a continue of the anti-Communist and racist ideology of Nazi Germany. During the time before the instant communication afforded by the internet, Western people were ‘cut-off’ from the everyday reality of life in the Soviet Union, and had no means to counter the continuous stream of disinformation emanating from the bourgeois-democratic governments they ‘elected’. As a consequence, the capitalist West was kept in a perpetual state of fear, ensuring that the youth of each new generation joined the military to fight the Soviet threat, rather than spend their collective time fermenting a Socialist Revolution.
