Our teachers in Canada never mentioned any good aspects of the Soviet Union. Although I am not a communist/socialist, it is interesting that our schools never taught us the positives of the Soviet Union. Basically we mostly learned about WW2, Cold War, gulags and Joseph Stalin killing millions of people. We didn't learn about the everyday life of many Russians and how a lot of them lived normal lives. It was made out to be the awful dystopian place. Do you think this was due to ignorance of the teachers and school system or were they purposely omitting positive aspects of the Soviet Union?
How about you?
