These are extra icons for an existing "Soviet System" set. Go to the creator's site to download more. These icons are fun in a "retro-stalinist" sort'a way...:-/

EV, I understand you.
But, censuring helps nothing.

I am a African man. I know the evil of communism, or is it the evil of the man?

Where the Imperialism evil stands?

For start lets get rid of the Catholic Church.

C«mon.

Decent icons, but much to do about nothing. These are 4 simple icons that aside form the 1917 poster have nothing really to do with Soviet communism. Deal.

"They reflect early Soviet art, the 1920s, a time when artists, there, pushed their limits, experimenting with new, revolutionary ideas. They're really well crafted."

WHILE THE OFFICIAL ARTISTS "EXPERIMENTED WITH REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS", 20,000000 WERE DYING IN THE GULAG CAMPS.

"If EV, or anyone else, finds them offensive, then, of course they'd best not look at them. I, and many others, DON'T have a problem with them. It's all about freedom of choice, you dig?"

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN DIDN'T HAVE THAT FREEDOM OF CHOICE THAT "ROTTEN CAPITALISM" OFFERS YOU.

Hmmm......I suddenly feel like singing the INTERNATIONALE,...."Arise, you prisoners of starvation!

Arise, you wretched of the earth! For justice....."

Oh my, I don't know what came over me.... YOU ALSO CAN RAISE YOUR RIGHT ARM,. FOR EXAMPLE, AND SING "HORST WESSEL", OR "DEUCHLAND, DEUCHLAND ÜBER ALLES", AND YELL "HEIL HITLER".
THER ARE STILL MANY ADMIRERS OF EVIL IN THE WORLD, BE IT COMMUNISM OR FASCISM. REVOLTING.

I dunno, I always liked "La Marseillaise" better than the "Internationale", but oh well. And I'm not French, no, I am Scottish by ancestry. Proud to be an ancestor of the people who invented the modern world and everything in it. Cheers. Patria o Muerte, venceremos.

"....Amazon who sell books by Bulgakov (Stalins favourite play-write) or at the Tate Gallery when they display Soviet propoganda art or modernist industrial art from the soviet era."

1) Bulgakov was a white army officer, hated communism, (read his "Heart of the Dog" or "Master and Margarita") suffered constant opression by the NKVD (old KGB) and obviously, Stalin hated him.
2) Obviously, I consider the fact that the Tate Gallery displays Soviet propoganda art or modernist industrial art from the soviet era an act of political indecency.

3) In Europe, public display of the nazi paraphernalia is punishible by jail time. Presently, ex-comunist countries are working in the european parlament on a legislation that would outlaw public display of communist simbols.

Bulgakov was a favourite of Stalin, he was originally a doctor, yes he served in the white army as many did. But he was protected by Stalin who went to see one of Bulgakovs plays 13 times said:
that a writer of Bulgakov's quality was above 'party words' like 'left' and 'right'. Wikipedia has all you want to know on the man here

I stumbled upon these icon designs by accident and then read that it had become a political hot potato

1. The slogan in defence of the city of lenin was used in WW2

2. If we recognise only the terror that government brings we cannot take any of its benefits.

3. In the name of ...Christianity, National socialism, Communism, What is Right, Liberty, Liberation and so on ...has been the rallying cry of murderers all over the world.

Many artists during times of oppression can not easily find outlets for their art and they find expression only in approved art and so soviet art is recognised and appreciated as being within a certain sphere.

Do you protest at waterstones or Amazon who sell books by Bulgakov (Stalins favourite play-write) or at the Tate Gallery when they display Soviet propoganda art or modernist industrial art from the soviet era.

We revere Nazis in the shape of the VW golf, Porche who designed it was a great friend of Hitler. The Thyssen family (check the escalator next time you go on it) made things I beleive that helped in the systematic destruction of the Jews in Europe.

I could go on....the point of art is it has a subversive energy, so things once used in one way can be subverted or reduced to another. Symbols that were once of destruction are now reduced to icons on a computer.

These icons in some ways acknowledge the destruction of the Soviet monolith. They weren't meant to but there you are.

hey ho I will be taking a look at them
