The Great October Socialist Revolution is the best known revolution in the world, whereas its influence over the development of mankind is the greatest among all revolutions known. Whatever the attitude to the Russian Revolution might be, any more or less literate human in the world has at least an idea of what happened in Russia in 1917 and who Lenin was.
As a young communist, I want to argue very strongly that the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917 in Russia left its mark on every corner of the planet for many decades. The Great October Socialist revolution demonstrated the working class`s potential and capacity to implement its historical mission as the only truly revolutionary class, to lead the first attempt to construct socialism-communism. At the same time, the Great October Socialist Revolution showed the irreplaceable role of the guiding force of the socialist revolution, the communist party, the enormous strength of proletarian internationalism.
In accordance with the law of social development discovered and described by Karl Marx and Fredrick Engels "the replacement of the declining capitalist social order by a new one that is more progressive, socialist, should inevitably take place". In Russia it happened in 1917 and exactly as a result of October Revolution. The October Revolution was a continuation of the Paris Commune of 1871. Paris Commune of 1871 was the first successful establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat. Paris Commune of 1871 was the first state of workers and peasants that has so far demonstrated the stability among the rest of known socialist states.
Nevertheless, we as current communists are facing the jubilee of October not on the rise, but suffering temporary defeat of the October revolution cause in the land of October Revolution, i.e. in the state of retreat. The best way of celebrating the Great October Socialist Revolution jubilee would be to focus upon the tasks yet unresolved and for the youth to draw lessons and be fully aware that all revolutions experience moments or regress or moments of progress. Young people therefore no matter the difficulties the struggle may be but should know that a genuine revolution is never defeated. The chief main task of the youth is that they must continue to learn the revolutionary trends and continue to self-cultivate themselves by the theory of Marxism-Leninism.
