This paper relates that documentation has been found indicating that the great October Revolution of Russian history was nothing more or less than a bloody riot with some, but not many, murders in the fighting plus a great deal of raping and pillaging of the privileged class. The author points out that it was in February, 1917, that the people, particularly of Moscow and the army, seized power in a bloodless coup and put into place a totally ineffective "Provisional Government" forcing Czar Nicholas to abdicate the throne. The paper states that the main problem among the Social Democratic Party was that the two men leading the two main factions of the party vehemently disliked one another; Ulyanov and his faction the Bolsheviks was slightly the larger faction and Trotsky's Mensheviks were of the educated middle ground and a definite minority of the party.

From the Paper:

"Back in 1898, using the Manifesto of Karl Marx, the much-acclaimed German philosopher and firm believer in the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat," two men one Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov and the other Leon Trotsky along with many others formed the Political Party known as the Social Democratic Party. This party whose main goal, actually their sole goal, was to bring as much pressure to bear as possible upon the Crown in an unsuccessful effort to gain some semblance of social justice for the masses. This they did by means of every sort of act of civil disobedience they could think of for the people to engage in such as general strikes, specific strikes, create unrest within the military and any other disruptive acts of opportunity that presented themselves."
