The Russian socialist revolution of October 1917 changed the course of human history. Millions of working class, the dispossessed class, women, peasants and soldiers though their class and political consciousness decided to write history from their own point of view in favour humanity. An overwhelming majority of oppressed people overthrew capitalism and successfully registered the first socialist revolution on earth. The Russian Revolution was biggest proof of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels claim that capitalism in decay is to be dismantled.
