Question by ModerateMan: What Was Life Really Like Inside the USSR?
We’ve all seen the movies, movies that depict life in the USSR as totally abysmal, dull, and mediocre. But I want to know if life was really as bad as people here in the United States say it was. When people say that Stalin was a Totalitarian, was he conducting things like the govt. in the novel 1984 did? Also, how was life after Stalin? Were things better or worse in terms of Social freedoms? Did people have any amount of Financial freedom? If you have personally lived in the USSR at any point in your life, feel free to share your experiences.
