Dreaming of the past:Russian Revolution

If only the Bolsheviks had absorbed some of the ideology of the Left Socialist Revolutionaries, who were more decentralized, less dogmatic, and more in line with the people, or, even better, if only the Socialist Revolutionaries would have absorbed some of the positive aspects of Bolshevism, such as its attempt at a deep theoretical understanding of society, while still rejecting the Vanguard, the banning of political parties, and the centralization of the State, things could have been much different.

The Left Socialist Revolutionaries, or Left SRs, staged an uprising that Anarchists took part in as junior partners that threatened the Bolshevik state and sa Lenin non-fatally shot by a Left SR.
