In January 1905, a number of Russians


Made the following petition to the Tsar

  •  the right to vote;
  • freedom of speech, the press, and association;
  • freedom of conscience;
  • separation of Church and state;
  • equality before the law;
  • freedom to form trade unions;
  • the right to strike;
  • an eight-hour working day;
  • insurance benefits; and improved wages.
  • They also demanded an end to the Russo-Japanese War, especially after Russia’s humiliating defeat at the hands of the Japanese in 1904

These demands were made by socialists and workers


Something interesting in all radical and revolutionary work is the belief in the working classes to radically transform society for the greater benefit of everyone.

    The methods of governence (self, or otherwise) are in dire need of a radical overhaul. Human populations are just too large today for systems devised centuries ago.

  2. Ah, socialists! Well, I’ve got JUST the right answer for them! Gas chambers and crematoriums! ALL socialists are lazy, SJW, libtards. ALL of them are anti-‘Murican, and ALL of them HATE Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thus, MY solution to the “problem” that is socialists is the ONLY solution that will or can work. God bless ‘Murica, and God bless freedom! $Amen$ 🙂

    Yet the rights and assurances sought by the Russians in 1905 weren’t that revolutionary nor radical. They were, in fact, relatively mild and perhaps have saved the lives of the Romanov dynasty had they been granted. Naked hugs! 🙂
