100 years on from the Russian Revolution – What have we learned?

This week marks the centenary of the October Revolution, which transformed Russia and reshaped the course of history. 100 years on, the IEA’s Kristian Niemietz and Madeline Grant discuss what lessons, if any, we’ve learnt from socialism’s history of around the world; from the Soviet Union, to Cuba, to Venezuela.

Kristian also traces the complicated relationship left-wing Western intellectuals have had with socialist regimes – and examines whether the right has also been, historically, guilty of similar revisionism.
