A steady stream of inescapable propaganda about worker exploitation, the evils of the bourgeoisie, and an oppressive nature of the class system in the USSR created a generation of post-Soviet people who are
- extraordinarily materialistic
- fiercely libertarian / free marketeer
- passionately classist.
Propaganda tends to bring to life the exact opposite of what it seeks. It only works for one generation, and then creates deeply cynical people in the next 3-4 generations.
