Russian Revolution, said to be the "will of the people," but was it really? 
The Workers and Peasants' Socialist revolt that gave rise to the French born Workers and Peasants' Socialist Party, built on the ideas of men who weren't even truly Russian... a Tatar named Ulyanov, a wealthy Ukrainian Jew named Trotsky, and a seminary-educated Georgian we know as Stalin, a man who could be said to have barely spoke the Russian language. Were they the truly them voice of the people?
